“Hologic believes in enabling doctors with superior technology that improves women’s health through early detection and treatment,” said Pete Valenti, Hologic’s Division President, Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions. “Our market-leading mammography solutions perfectly complement Philips’ portfolio, making Hologic the right industry partner for this first-of-its-kind collaboration. 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.”
In breast care, Philips offers advanced imaging for ultrasound (e.g. Philips Affinity with Anatomical Intelligence for Breast), MRI (e.g. Philips Ingenia digital MRI with Compressed SENSE to speed up exam times), and PET/CT (e.g. Philips Vereos fully digital PET/CT), supported by intelligent image analysis, quantification, information management and workflow tools. 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 radiology [1,2].
The multi-year, non-exclusive global partnership agreement allows for customized regional implementation to best meet the individual needs of each customer. The financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.
