The Power and Promise of Breast Tomosynthesis is Here.

WHAT IS BREAST TOMOSYNTHESIS?

The Selenia Dimensions system allows you to harness the power of breast tomosynthesis to identify and characterize individual breast structures with clarity and certainty never before possible.

In fact, breast cancer screening with Hologic’s breast tomosynthesis system allows you to find cancers earlier, significantly improving your cancer detection rate compared to conventional 2D mammography2. Studies have proven that masses, distortions and asymmetric densities are better visualized with Selenia Dimensions breast tomosynthesis technology1.

The proven superiority of Hologic’s latest breast imaging innovation gives radiologists the confidence to significantly reduce recall rates.3-4 Breast tomosynthesis is changing the paradigm of breast cancer detection and we are just getting started with this exciting technology. Learn more about its full potential.

Dimensions 3D Breast Tomosynthesis

For over a decade, Hologic has kept a steadfast focus on advancing the field of women’s healthcare – and today, their name is synonymous with the finest diagnostic and intervention solutions. In fact, Hologic now leads the industry in providing the most advanced digital mammography systems, including 3D breast tomosynthesis – one of the most powerful diagnostic tools for the early detection of breast cancer.

Hologic’s breast ultrasound and MRI solutions provide additional modalities for screening, diagnosis and biopsy imaging. In addition, we have developed workflow and image analytic solutions to support radiologists – and even greater technology innovations are on the horizon.
