The mission of the Hologic Interventional Breast Solutions business is to provide patient-focused, physician-inspired clinical solutions.   For nine years associates in the business have been hard at work developing leading products including the ATEC, Celero Ultrasound-Guided Breast Biopsy Device and Eviva breast biopsy devices. Hologic is a leading U.S. producer of vacuum-assisted breast biopsy devices. During RSNA 2011, Hologic will feature the following devices:

Eviva is Hologic’s newest vacuum-assisted breast biopsy device designed to incorporate firing, pain management and site marking into one integrated system. Like Hologic’s legacy ATEC system, Eviva is a fast, safe and simple breast biopsy device that removes suspicious breast tissue for pathological evaluation. The Eviva device delivers exceptional clinical results, while enabling physicians to treat a broader spectrum of patients. It is the only vacuum-assisted device with SecurMark, Hologic’s fully integrated end-deploy biopsy site marking solution made specifically for Eviva.

The new MultiCare Maximum Comfort Package is designed to ensure that patients are as comfortable as possible. Toward this end, it offers a collection of ergonomically engineered cushions for targeted pressure-point support and three user-selectable apertures to provide optimal selection for all body types and lesions. The stable arm support can be adjusted to provide optimal patient positioning for arm-through procedures, offering a more comfortable, secure procedure for the patient.

The new Hologic Affirm breast biopsy guidance system represents the next generation in upright breast biopsy. This innovative solution is designed for the Selenia Dimensions digital mammography system to streamline efficiency and optimize workflow, giving facilities the opportunity to offer leading edge technology in minimally invasive breast biopsy. With a quick and easy transition from mammography to upright biopsy, Affirm offers practices a cost-effective, space-saving and upgradeable system to expand its range of service offerings.
