Hologic announced the signing of an exclusive partnership agreement with SuperSonic Imagine, S.A., an innovative producer of diagnostic ultrasound technology. Under the terms of the agreement, Hologic will sell, install and service SuperSonic Imagine's Aixplorer ultrasound technology platform to the breast care community in the United States.

"Hologic is committed to providing the highest quality imaging products to assist in the diagnosis of breast disease," notes Peter Soltani, Hologic Senior Vice President and General Manager of Breast Health. "Partnering with SuperSonic Imagine to market the Aixplorer breast ultrasound platform is a natural extension of our portfolio. With the addition of the Aixplorer system, we can provide clinicians another leading edge technology to help detect breast cancer in its early stages."

The Aixplorer MultiWave ultrasound system features a patented, software-based architecture that incorporates the latest signal processing technology designed to enable excellent B-mode image quality and support a new imaging tool, ShearWave Elastography. ShearWave Elastography is designed to provide a real-time, color-coded map that displays true local tissue elasticity. This technique is user-skill independent and reproducible.

Jacques Souquet, Ph.D, SuperSonic Imagine's Founder and CEO stated that "We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Hologic as we share a commitment to clinical rigour and to providing the market with best in class devices."

SuperSonic Imagine, S.A., based in Aix-en-Provence, France, is a privately held international company with a strong commitment to providing advanced technology to improve medical diagnosis. SuperSonic Imagine was founded in 2005 by ultrasound and medical imaging research scientists and under the direction of Jacques Souquet, Ph.D., and Claude Cohen-Bacrie, Executive Vice President and CTO. The company is expanding into additional clinical applications where its innovative technology will provide new clinical benefits.
