Hologic's 3D Mammography Technology to be the "New Standard of Care," According to Healthcare Research Firm KLAS
Date:3/19/2013

focused on whether the technology was worth the investment for providers. Nearly 90% of those surveyed said they are achieving a positive return on investment (ROI). According to the report, providers saw "a significant reduction in false-positive callbacks, an increase in new patients, and even workflow improvements."iii

In conventional 2D mammography, the presence of overlapping breast tissue can make it more difficult to detect cancer and to evaluate areas of suspicion. Hologic's 3D mammography technology is designed to help overcome these limitations and allow doctors to see breast tissue more clearly, free from the interference of overlapping structures. Clinical data shows that the addition of 3D mammography to a 2D breast cancer screening exam significantly increases invasive cancer detection while greatly reducing unnecessary callbacks.

"Hologic is pleased that KLAS has validated the reasons why so many providers are adopting 3D mammography for their patients," said Peter Soltani , Hologic's Senior Vice President and General Manager of Women's Health. "The ability to achieve a positive return on investment, while providing a leading-edge technology with demonstrated clinical advantages is a win-win situation for everyone. The recently-published Oslo Tomosynthesis Screening Trial showed that screening with Hologic's 3D mammography finds 40 percent more invasive cancers than traditional mammography alone. It is encouraging to have independent data from this report to confirm the positive business impact."
