September 17, 2015 — Hologic Inc. announced that U.S. mammography providers gave the company and its Genius 3-D Mammography exams top scores in a new study by KLAS Research, titled Women’s Imaging 2015: Are New Technologies Delivering Promised Benefits?
In the study, mammography providers scored Hologic highest in all 11 performance measures evaluated by KLAS. For example:
- 95 percent of users said they would buy from Hologic again; and
- 67 percent of users said Hologic was their best mammography vendor.
The researchers noted that Hologic 3-D Mammography stands out for technology innovation and high image quality, and that its C-View software is strengthening satisfaction and encouraging adoption.
The KLAS study found significant movement in the mammography space thanks to the advent of breast tomosynthesis technology. For example, 65 percent of the providers surveyed planned to invest in breast tomosynthesis technology during the next two years, up from 57 percent in 2014. The study notes that many respondents who said they did not intend to purchase had already upgraded to tomosynthesis.
Clinical studies have shown that a Hologic Genius 3-D Mammography exam using the company’s low-dose software is superior to 2-D exams alone for all breast types, improving diagnostic accuracy while also reducing recalls. With C-View software, facilities can offer a better exam at an equivalent dose to 2-D alone.
