Hologic Opens NASDAQ, Includes MammoPads Starter with Systems

October 3, 2007 — Hologic, Inc., a provider of diagnostic imaging and digital imaging systems directed towards women’s health, opened the NASDAQ Stock Market, October 2, 2007 in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, commemorated annually on October 1st.
Chairman and CEO of Hologic, Jack Cumming, presided over the NASDAQ opening bell ceremony at the NASDAQ Market Site.
Hologic recently completed the acquisition of BioLucent, the maker of MammoPad. The disposable MammoPad creates a cushion between the woman and the mammography system – reportedly making the experience more comfortable and ultimately less stressful. In addition, Hologic believes with the use of the MammoPad, there is improved tissue acquisition, which may aid the technologist in improved patient positioning. Clinical studies show that three out of four women experience an average 50% decrease in discomfort with MammoPad. More than 12 million women have already benefited from MammoPad, according to the company.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, Hologic plans to include a starter case of MammoPads with all digital mammography systems shipped this month in the United States with the hope of introducing more clinicians, technologists and women to this most beneficial and very simple to use technology, according to the company.
