Hologic Company Profile

00:16 EDT 22nd September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Hologic is a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostic and medical imaging systems dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of women, and a leading developer of state-of-the-art digital imaging technology for general radiography and mammography applications. Our core business units are focused on osteoporosis assessment, mammography and breast biopsy, direct-to-digital x-ray for general radiography applications and mini C-arm imaging for orthopedic applications. We are a company of individuals from varying backgrounds who share a common goal - the desire to extend women's lives through the development of technologically superior diagnostic imaging systems that will facilitate the early detection of breast cancer and osteoporosis. We are proud of the work we do every day to preserve and extend the lives of countless women throughout the world. Each year, more than one million women are diagnosed with breast cancer, while hundreds of thousands of them fall victim to this dreaded disease. In addition, osteoporosis affects more than 200 million women worldwide. The rising number of osteoporotic fractures and their associated morbidity place an increasingly heavy burden on future healthcare resources, as it is estimated that the annual cost of managing osteoporosis will be more than $15 billion. Hologic has achieved a leading market position in breast cancer and osteoporosis detection in the United States. Our market share in the European, Asian and South American markets continues to grow. The fastest growing market opportunity is in the breast cancer detection segment. Our primary objective is to capitalize on this opportunity through current and future generations of our Selenia full-field digital mammography system, while responding to the increasing demand of the digital workflow. There is nothing more important than for us to remain dedicated to the principle of applying highly sophisticated technology to medical imaging challenges, and we are committed to being an active voice and a corporate role model in promoting women's health initiatives.
