  • 3D Guided Breast Biopsy.  Hologic's Affirm 3D mammography biopsy option is designed for the localization and accurate targeting of regions of interest and is especially important for targeting lesions not detected in 2D imaging or when using other modalities. This new biopsy technique is designed to provide numerous advantages over traditional stereotactic biopsy procedures, including faster lesion targeting and reduced patient procedure time. The Affirm system is pre-programmed for use with the Company's Eviva and ATEC vacuum-assisted breast biopsy devices.
  • Hologic's 3D Selenia Dimensions mammography system is currently the only FDA approved 3D system in the United States, and Hologic is the only company worldwide that can provide a 3D breast biopsy solution. The Company has 3D systems placed in 49 states and 59 countries worldwide.

    Hologic's 3D mobile coach is making a special stop at RSNA on its year-long, cross-country "3D Technology: A More Accurate Mammogram" tour which is dedicated to spreading the word about the important clinical benefits of 3D mammography.

    2013 was a pivotal year for 3D mammography with the publication of multiple large-scale, clinical studies validating the benefits of this groundbreaking technology. The studies published to date show that Hologic's screening technology results in an approximate 40% increase in invasive cancer detection rates ii-iv and up to a 40% reduction in recalls iv-v. Continuing the trend, over 60 new scientific papers, poster sessions and sponsored courses will be presented at RSNA on 3D mammography, many of which used Hologi
