Date:11/19/2012

p://www.hologic3d.com/">Selenia Dimensions 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) system. The technology was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in February 2011 and has been available in countries recognizing the CE mark since 2008. Hologic's 3D mammography technology is available in 47 states in the United States and 28 other countries.

Hologic's 3D mammography system placed first in the digital mammography category in the KLAS 2012 annual survey of healthcare executives and clinicians. KLAS is a research firm specializing in monitoring and reporting on the performance of healthcare vendors. 3D mammography was recently selected by AuntMinnie as the "hottest clinical procedure" of the year for the third consecutive year. AuntMinnie is the largest and most comprehensive Web site for medical imaging professionals worldwide. In October, the Cleveland Clinic picked 3D mammography as one of the Top 10 Medical Innovations for 2013 at the Clinic's 10th annual Medical Innovation Summit.

Fifteen of the clinical papers and over 50 of the workshops, seminars, poster sessions and scientific papers to be presented at the conference are on 3D mammography.  Clinical presentations cover the use of tomosynthesis in screening and diagnostic applications.

Hologic is once again offering training sessions including hands-on experience reading 3D breast tomosynthesis images in combination with conventional and synthesized 2D images. Brief lectures will provide an overview of the technologies prior to the hands-on sessions. Each program will be taught by a leading breast imaging radiologist.  Radiologists can register for a workshop through the RSNA meeting web site.

Some of Hologic's other advances in breast tomosynthesis on display at the conference include its tomosynthesis biopsy option for use with the Affirm biopsy
