Royal Philips, a global leader in health technology, and Hologic, Inc., an innovative women’s health company, announced a global partnership agreement to offer care professionals integrated solutions comprising diagnostic imaging modalities, advanced informatics and services for screening, diagnosis and treatment of women across the world.

“No two women are alike, and we are teaming up with care providers and leading industry partners to support the delivery of a tailored, seamless breast care experience for women,” said said Rob Cascella, CEO Diagnosis & Treatment businesses for Royal Philips. “That is why I am very pleased to announce our new partnership with Hologic for mammography. This partnership allows us to offer a complete set of innovative diagnostic imaging systems, software and services to our customers, including Hologic’s market-leading mammography solutions for breast screening and diagnosis of women in need of care.”

Now, through the partnership, Hologic can join Philips when engaging with customers on projects that were not previously possible for the two companies alone. It’s a win for everyone involved, including the customers and patients we serve.”

Under the agreement, Philips will be able to offer select products from Hologic’s breast health portfolio as part of multi-modality deals for hospitals and health systems. This will include Hologic’s new 3Dimensions mammography system, the fastest, highest resolution breast tomosynthesis system in the industry, as well as other technologies for breast screening and interventional radiology1,2.
