Hologic and R2 to combine technology:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Hologic (Bedford, Massachusetts) is to incorporate computer aided detection technology from R2 Technology (Sunnyvale, California) into its full field digital mammography system. Under the agreement, initially for five years, R2 will customise its ImageChecker tool, which helps minimise false negative readings of mammograms, for use with Hologic's Lorad Selenia instrument. Although both technologies are US FDA-approved, the companies will have to file a new marketing application for their integrated use. Hologic will have distribution rights worldwide.
