Transforming Breast & Skeletal Care

The Hologic Breast & Skeletal Health Solutions division strives to advance early detection, more certain diagnoses and accurate and compassionate treatment. 

At Hologic, we apply cutting-edge science to accelerate discovery, improve efficiency and continually sharpen precision. 

  • For women facing breast cancer, Hologic is there from screening through treatment with technologies that advance early detection and the highest quality interventional products when necessary. 

Our Genius 3D™ Mammography™ exam,* offered through our Selenia® Dimensions® system, finds 20%-65% more invasive breast cancers compared to 2D alone.1 It also reduces callbacks by up to 40% compared to 2D alone.2 Along with our other products, it reflects our ongoing drive to introduce innovations that bring greater certainty and peace of mind to both patients and the healthcare professionals who care for them.

With osteoporosis causing more than 8.9 million fractures annually, early detection is key to keeping patients safe. That’s why we ensure that our clinical images enable doctors to see more, so they can make more informed diagnoses and treatment decisions in time to have a positive impact on every patient’s health and well-being. 

We set the gold standard for bone densitometry in 1987 with the first dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) system. Today, we continue to take bone health to new heights, with the Horizon® DXA platform, which assesses osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and obesity. We’re raising the bar for fluoroscopy imaging as well, with our CMOS flat detector and its exclusive rotating capabilities.

* The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam (a.k.a. Genius™ exam) is acquired on the Hologic® 3D Mammography™ system and consists of a 2D and 3D™ image set, where the 2D image can be either an acquired 2D image or a 2D image generated from the 3D™ image set. 
The Genius™ exam is only available on the Hologic® 3D Mammography™ system. 
Please consult your physician for a full list of benefits and risks associated with mammography.
