Hologic Signs Agreement With Clarius Mobile Health for Portable Breast Ultrasound System

Partnership will help drive global access to critical breast health services

November 28, 2017 — Hologic Inc. announced it has signed a development and distribution agreement with Clarius Mobile Health for its wireless, handheld ultrasound scanner. The announcement was made at the 2017 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Of the 1.5 billion women worldwide who are eligible for breast cancer screening, less than 5 percent of them actually receive these critical services. The agreement between Hologic and Clarius is designed to increase global access to accurate breast screening and biopsy solutions.

The Clarius breast ultrasound system is one of the many breast and skeletal health solutions available for demonstration in Hologic's booth at the 103rd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.
