MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc.

The partnership supports Hologic's commitment to early detection and will help ensure that women around the globe have access to the most accurate breast health solutions that are rooted in clinical superiority.

"We're very excited to partner with a company that places the same value on image quality and accuracy as we do here at Hologic," said Pete Valenti, Hologic's Division President, Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions. "The exceptional image quality and portability of Clarius's ultrasound system, coupled with our industry-leading deep learning algorithms, bring us one step closer to ensuring all women have access to the breast care they need and deserve."
