Hologic, Inc. (Marlborough, MA, USA) showcased its latest innovations at the fully virtual ECR 2021, including the new Genius AI™ powered imaging technology for sharper, faster and smarter detection and diagnosis in breast health care.

The ECR is the second-largest radiological meeting in the world with attendees spanning all areas of the radiology arena, including radiology professionals, radiographers, physicists, and industry representatives. At the 2021 edition of ECR held in Vienna, Austria from March 3-10, 2021, Hologic showcased its Genius AI™ Detection technology, a new deep learning-based software designed to help radiologists detect subtle potential cancers in breast tomosynthesis images.

The new technology represents a pivotal milestone in the early detection of breast cancer, as studies showed Genius AI Detection software aids in the identification and early detection of breast cancer when used with the Genius® 3D Mammography™ exam. The new technology highlights areas with subtle potential cancers that can be difficult to detect for further examination by the radiologist, and is designed to provide higher sensitivity and a false-positive rate much lower than Hologic’s previous generation CAD products.

The new software delivers key metrics at the time of image acquisition to help radiologists categorize and prioritize cases by complexity and expected read time in order to optimize workflow and expedite patient care. It is the only deep learning product on the market that runs on the acquisition workstation of the mammography system without the need for a separate server, providing a simple, convenient and secure environment.

The Genius AI Detection software is the only 3D CAD solution that supports Hologic’s latest innovations in tomosynthesis imaging, Clarity HD™ and 3DQuorum™ imaging technology, in addition to standard-resolution tomosynthesis. The Genius® 3D Mammography™ exam is acquired on the Hologic® 3D Mammography™ system and consists of a 2D and 3D™ image set, where the 2D image can be either an acquired 2D image or a 2D image generated from the 3D™ image set. The Genius exam is only available on the Hologic® 3D Mammography™ system.
