Hologic Inc is a developer, manufacturer and supplier of medical imaging systems and diagnostic and surgical products serving the healthcare needs of women.

Hologic Inc was incorporated in Massachusetts in October 1985. The Company is a developer, manufacturer and supplier of diagnostics products, medical imaging systems and surgical products with an emphasis on women's health. The Company operates in four segments: Diagnostics, Breast Health, GYN Surgical and Skeletal Health. It offers diagnostic products which are used to aid in the diagnosis of human diseases and screen donated human blood and plasma. Its primary diagnostics products include its Aptima family of assays, which run on its instrumentation systems (Panther and Tigris), its ThinPrep system, the Rapid Fetal Fibronectin Test and its Procleix blood screening assays. The Aptima family of assays is used to detect the infectious microorganisms that cause the common sexually transmitted diseases, or STDs, chlamydia and gonorrhea, certain high-risk strains of human papillomavirus, or HPV, and Trichomonas vaginalis, the parasite that causes trichomoniasis. The ThinPrep System is used in cytology applications, such as cervical cancer screening, and the Rapid Fetal Fibronectin Test assists physicians in assessing the risk of pre-term birth. In blood screening, the Company develops and manufactures the Procleix family of assays, which are used to detect various infectious diseases. The Procleix blood screening assays also run on its Panther and Tigris systems. These blood screening products are marketed by its blood screening collaborator, Grifols S.A., or Grifols, under Grifols' trademarks. The Breast Health products include a portfolio of breast imaging and related products and accessories, including digital mammography systems, computer-aided detection, or CAD, for mammography and minimally invasive breast biopsy devices, breast biopsy site markers, and breast biopsy guidance systems. Its breast imaging platform, Dimensions, utilizes a technology called tomosynthesis to produce 3D images that show multiple contiguous slice images of the breast, which it refers to as the Genius 3D Mammography exam, as well as conventional 2D full field digital mammography images. Its clinical results for FDA approval demonstrated that conventional 2D digital mammography with the addition of 3D tomosynthesis is superior to 2D digital mammography alone for both screening and diagnostics. The GYN Surgical products include its NovaSure Endometrial Ablation System and its MyoSure Hysteroscopic Tissue Removal System. The NovaSure system involves a trans-cervical procedure for the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding. The MyoSure system is a tissue removal device that is designed to provide incision-less removal of fibroids, polyps, and other pathology within the uterus. The Skeletal Health segment offers Discovery and Horizon X-ray bone densitometers that assess the bone density of fracture sites; and mini C-arm imaging systems that assist in performing minimally invasive surgical procedures on a patient's extremities, such as the hand, wrist, knee,
