Hologic's diagnostics division will feature the recently launched We Can Change This STAT campaign with sports broadcaster, TV personality and cervical cancer survivor Erin Andrews.

Hologic's Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam and new 3Dimensions™ mammography system also will be featured in the company's booth. The Genius™ exam is the only mammogram proven to detect 20-65 percent more invasive breast cancers compared to 2D alone, and is the only mammogram approved by the FDA as superior for women with dense breasts compared to 2D alone.2,3 The new 3Dimensions system provides higher resolution 3D™ images for radiologists, enhanced workflow for technologists and a more comfortable mammography experience, with the SmartCurve™ breast stabilization system, for patients. System features include Clarity HD high-resolution 3D™ imaging and Intelligent 2D™ imaging technology – which recently received PMA approval from the FDA – in addition to Quantra™ 2.2 breast density assessment software. Quantra utilizes machine-learning to analyze each patient's pattern and texture of breast tissue and then provides a category score that the radiologist may provide to the primary care physician to discuss with the patient.
