New radiography system approved in US


Hologic, a manufacturer of diagnostics, surgical products and medical imaging technology for women, has received FDA clearance for its Trident specimen radiography system.

The device uses the company’s proprietary direct digital detector technology to produce high quality images of tissue samples, aiming to reduce procedure steps, streamline workflow and increase accuracy.

Peter Soltani, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Breast Health, said: “Our goal is to provide leading-edge technologies that improve the diagnostic precision of procedures and create a better experience for patients and their healthcare providers.”

The Trident is designed for use in the operating room where breast tissue is surgically excised, and in biopsy suites where minimally-invasive breast biopsies are performed.

Based in Massachusetts, USA, Hologic is a developer, manufacturer and supplier of diagnostics, medical imaging systems and surgical products dedicated to the healthcare needs of women with a focus on breast health, diagnostics, GYN surgical, and skeletal health.
