A Passion for Women’s Health

The Genius® 3D Mammography™ exam is just one of many groundbreaking technologies and products developed by Hologic. Our purpose is to enable healthier lives everywhere by applying cutting-edge science. While our innovations benefit everyone, we’re especially passionate about those that improve women’s health and well-being — saving lives, improving quality of life, and impacting the lives of the people who women care about and for every day. It’s that passion that has made us a global leader in the breast health.

More Certainty for Doctors

Every day when we come to work, we look for ways to help healthcare professionals detect, diagnose and treat breast cancer earlier and more effectively, so that women can live healthy lives with peace of mind. The technologies and products we develop help doctors minimize doubt and maximize their confidence in the decisions that affect your life. It’s what we call the Science of Sure. And it’s why today, Hologic mammography products are proven to be the best in the field.

President of Breast and Skeletal Health at Hologic

“Studies show that when you impact the well-being of a woman, you impact the well-being of her family and the community around her. So we at Hologic can have a profound impact every single day on human health across the world.”

A Better Experience for Women

The Genius exam is just a beginning. At Hologic, we’re unique in that when we look at breast health, we look at the entire journey of a woman from risk assessment and screening through biopsy, treatment and monitoring — the continuum of care. By looking at the continuum, we understand how all the phases of the journey work together. We also gain insights into women’s experiences as patients. Over the years, what we’ve learned has helped us invent new ways to make every step along the continuum more accurate — and also, through innovations like the SmartCurve™ system that transforms the mammography experience, to make the journey more comfortable and easier for you.

Beyond Breast Care

As a global champion for women’s health, our approach is holistic: We work to save and improve lives by developing technologies and products for cervical and skeletal health, as well as breast health.

Saving Lives Around the Globe

Did you know that breast cancer is one of the most common diseases affecting women in developing countries? Truth is, breast cancer is the most common cancer worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

Many parts of the world don’t have the resources or skilled medical staff to properly diagnose and treat breast cancer. That makes Hologic’s Genius AI™ Detection technology an especially powerful tool for early detection. Based on deep learning, artificial intelligence can alert less experienced doctors to potential problem areas in mammograms and save the lives of women in regions where deaths from breast cancer are disproportionately high.

Black and Hispanic women are not receiving the breast care they deserve. We’re working to change that.
