"We're very excited to partner with a company that places the same value on image quality and accuracy as we do here at Hologic," said Pete Valenti, Hologic's Division President, Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions. "The exceptional image quality and portability of Clarius's ultrasound system, coupled with our industry-leading deep learning algorithms, bring us one step closer to ensuring all women have access to the breast care they need and deserve."

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

As a company primarily focused on improving women's health and well-being through early detection and treatment, Hologic is dedicated to increasing global access to accurate breast screening and biopsy solutions through research, education and cutting-edge innovations.
