Hologic to Launch Unifi Workspace, Comprehensive Reading Solution for Breast Health Diagnostics

New workstation designed to enable more informed decision-making and improve workflow efficiencies for radiologists

November 26, 2019 — Unifi Workspace, a new comprehensive breast diagnostic reading solution from Hologic, will launch at the upcoming 105th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The much-anticipated multimodality workstation is designed to enable more informed decision-making and improve workflow efficiencies for radiologists.

Unifi Workspace integrates reading of MRI, ultrasound and mammography into one dedicated platform, and is designed to allow for more efficient review of breast images. The new solution features multimodality pre-fetching capabilities and MRI tools, such as MR CAD with subtraction, colorization and wash-in wash-out curve; MR motion correction; and multimodality-enabled hanging protocols.

 “Over the years, we’ve listened closely to radiologist feedback on how we could improve the reading experience,” said Pete Valenti, Hologic’s Division President, Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions. “Unifi Workspace represents a prime example of how we’ve innovated with the end user in mind. By integrating multiple imaging modalities into one system, this new solution can not only improve workflow efficiencies and patient outcomes, but also significantly reduce costs over time as it eliminates the need for additional workstations. We believe this product is a real game changer for our customers and we’re confident they will agree.” 

Unifi Workspace also provides a personalized reading environment for each radiologist in the breast center. With the new system, each user will have the opportunity to create a customized interface with hanging protocols based on his or her individual preferences.

While the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) and the introduction of EQUIP (Enhancing Quality Using the Inspection Program) have been successful in standardizing and enhancing mammographic imaging quality, inadequate breast positioning can dramatically impact the ability of radiologists and technicians to quickly and accurately detect breast cancer and potentially malignant lesions in their patients

New recommendations will help provide more reliable, reproducible results for MRI-based measurements of cartilage degeneration in the knee, helping to slow down disease and prevent progression to irreversible osteoarthritis, according to a special report published in the journal Radiology

Knee cartilage compartments with anatomic labels implemented in lateral (left side), central (middle), and medial (right side) MRI obtained with an intermediate weighted fat-saturated fast-spin-echo sequence (top row) and a spin-lattice relaxation time constant in rotating frame (T1r) magnetization-prepared angle-modulated partitioned k-space spoiled gradient echo snapshots sequence (bottom row, T1r maps). Study was performed without administration of intravenous gadolinium-based contrast material. The lateral femur (LF)/medial femur (MF) and lateral tibia (LT)/medial tibia (MT) can be further divided into subcompartments on the basis of meniscus anatomy according to Eckstein et al.
