Senator Blumenthal, a Strong Advocate for Women's Health, Visits Hologic's Manufacturing Facility in Danbury, CT
Date:8/21/2012

BEDFORD, Mass., Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Hologic, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOLX) announced that today it hosted Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Rep. Chris Murphy (D-CT 5) at the Company's women's imaging manufacturing facility in Danbury, CT. The Senator and Representative participated in a discussion with local breast cancer leaders, saw a demonstration of Hologic's newest technology, Dimensions 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) and toured the Company's manufacturing plant.

As a vocal proponent of breast cancer screening and annual mammography exams, Senator Blumenthal emphasized the important role Hologic plays in developing cutting-edge healthcare solutions for women and also in powering the local economy.

Connecticut has been a leader in promoting women's breast health. The state in 2009 became the first to enact a law requiring doctors to provide women with a breast density score after their mammograms. Dense breast tissue can make it more difficult to interpret a 2D mammogram, as breast cancer has the ability to hide behind the dense tissue.

Dr. Liane Philpotts, chief of Breast Imaging at the Yale University School of Medicine, was among those at Hologic's manufacturing facility in Danbury who discussed her experience with the Company's advanced Dimensions 3D breast tomosynthesis system. Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven was the first facility in Connecticut to offer Hologic's new screening and diagnosis tool.

"With Hologic's 3D technology, we can see the entire breast more clearly in one millimeter slices," said Dr. Philpotts. "This allows us to find additional cancers earlier and also dismiss ambiguous spots that are actually normal breast tissue."

Dr. Philpotts led a Yale-New Haven Hospital study that showed adding 3D to a screening mammography exam reduced recall rates by 40 p
