A global leader in women’s health, Hologic’s expanded footprint at the Congress provided an interactive experience for attendees that underscores a commitment to innovation through advancements in breast screening, surgery and biopsy solutions. Visitors were able to explore the pioneering technologies that integrate across Hologic’s Breast Health Continuum of Care, so they can better understand how these support the early detection and diagnostic needs of patients.
Also spotlighted was the company’s recently announced comprehensive contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM) collaboration with Bayer. The partnership aims to optimally support radiologists and their teams’ needs by providing a comprehensive product package—which includes Hologic 3D Mammography systems and Bayer contrast media injection systems—along with hands-on training to effectively implement the products into an imaging facility’s workflow. The two companies hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the new partnership. “As a world leader in mammography, we recognize that education and innovation must go hand-in-hand,” said Tanja Brycker, Vice President, Strategic Development, Breast & Skeletal Health and Gynecological Surgical Solutions at Hologic. “Over recent years, we have observed a growing interest in CEM as a diagnostic tool, and our partnership with Bayer will help radiologists understand how these systems can benefit them and assist with providing more conclusive results to their patients.”
Education continues to be a focus for Hologic at EUSOBI. It was providing a suite of reading and interventional workshops that allowed conference participants to get hands-on experience and engage in a series of Meet-The-Expert sessions covering CEM, tomosynthesis, biopsy and lesion localization. A full list of the sessions is available on the EUSOBI website. In addition, as part of its ongoing commitment to investing in the future of radiology, Hologic has sponsored ten radiologists from the Young EUSOBI Club to attend this year’s Congress.
