Hologic Sells 65 Mammography Systems in The Netherlands

March 6, 2009 - Hologic has received a final order for 14 Selenia digital mammography systems with service contracts from Hologic's dealer in The Netherlands - a deal in which Hologic has sold a total of 65 mammography systems.

This is the last of four order phases in The Netherlands Breast Cancer Screening Tender. The tender process started in 2006 with three digital mammography and three computed radiography vendors bidding for the business. In the end Hologic was awarded 100 percent of the digital mammography systems in the tender. The last of the 65 plus digital mammography systems awarded under the tender will be installed by the end of 2010.

“The Netherlands was the first country in the world to install a commercial version of the Selenia digital mammography system. With this award, more than 130 Selenia digital mammography and Selenia Dimensions three-dimensional digital breast tomosynthesis systems will be installed in the country and more than one million Dutch women a year can be screened for breast cancer using Hologic digital mammography systems," said Jack Cumming, chairman and chief executive officer of Hologic.
