Hologic Launches Trident® HD Specimen Radiography System in United States, Canada and Europe
Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) today announced global commercial availability of the Trident® HD specimen radiography system, a next-generation solution that delivers enhanced image quality, improved workflow and instant sample verification during breast-conserving surgeries and stereotactic breast biopsies.1. The new Trident HD system, which recently received FDA clearance in the US and a CE Mark in Europe, also features a bigger detector that allows for complete imaging of larger breast surgical specimens, along with a wide range of surgical and biopsy samples.2. “The Trident HD system is a breakthrough solution that delivers the superior image quality clinicians have come to expect from Hologic products, helping to streamline workflows and reduce recalls while decreasing procedure times,” said Pete Valenti, Hologic’s Division President, Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions. Prior mammography or biopsy images can be displayed on the same Trident HD high-resolution monitor to speed comparison and analysis, resulting in reduced procedure time and improved workflow.1 Additionally, an intuitive touchscreen interface and wireless integration supports advanced image sharing and seamless transfer of patient records to the facility’s picture archiving and communication system (PACS).
