The system is one of many in Hologic’s expanding suite of breast and skeletal health products, including screening, interventional, ultrasound and surgical solutions, that will be available for demonstration in Booths X2 - 211 and X5 - 521 at the annual European Congress of Radiology (ECR) meeting in Vienna, Austria from Feb. 27 to March 3.

The LOCalizer tag is designed to replace the traditional wire-guided localization method, helping to provide increased comfort and convenience for patients and their healthcare teams. The tag can be implanted up to 30 days prior to a breast-conserving surgery, providing increased flexibility for patients and providers. This improved workflow is designed to help reduce scheduling and logistical hurdles for care teams and aims to deliver added convenience for an enhanced patient experience. Following placement, the miniature implantable tag can be detected by a portable, handheld reader that indicates the location and distance in millimeters to the lesion, enabling the surgeon to pinpoint the correct area of breast tissue for removal.

“We look forward to showcasing the new LOCalizer system at ECR as we continue to broaden our offerings to make a positive impact on breast health at every step of the patient journey – from screening to pathology,” said Jan Verstreken, Regional President EMEA and Canada, Hologic. “This thoughtful expansion is rooted in our commitment to developing new and innovative solutions clinically proven to improve cancer detection, patient satisfaction and facility workflow, while reducing costs associated with unnecessary callbacks.”

The market leader behind the 3D Mammography™ exam, Hologic has expanded significantly in recent years through insight-driven innovation and strategic acquisitions to address the entire clinical continuum of breast health. Along with the LOCalizer system, the Company’s new products include the SmartCurve™ breast stabilization system, Clarity HD high-resolution 3D™ imaging technology, the Viera™ portable breast ultrasound system, and the Brevera® breast biopsy system with CorLumina® imaging technology, which features real-time imaging and sample verification. Two recent acquisitions of Faxitron® Bioptics, a leader in digital specimen radiography, and Focal Therapeutics, manufacturer of the BioZorb® marker, have enabled Hologic to play a larger role in breast-conserving surgery and strengthened its offerings to radiologists, pathologists and breast surgeons.

Visitors to the Hologic booth at ECR can experience the A.I. Future Suite, highlighting Hologic’s long-standing commitment to incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning into its groundbreaking technologies. Attendees will have a chance to experience current and future applications of A.I. in breast imaging, and learn more about how Hologic plans to continue to deliver significant value as a leader in the space. In addition, the Company’s entire suite of breast and skeletal health products, such as the 3Dimensions™ Mammography System and Fluoroscan® Insight™ FD Mini C-Arm, will be on display and available for demonstration.

Throughout ECR, Hologic will host a variety of workshops and a symposium, Advances in Breast Imaging: Clinical use of CEDM across Europe. Workshop topics will offer hands-on experience and expert insight into topics including: clinical workflow using tomosynthesis guidance and real-time breast biopsy imaging; a new technique for breast lesion localization; wireless ultrasound guided biopsies; contrast-enhanced mammography in clinical practice; optimization of tomosynthesis reading time; and breast density case reviews.

Delticom AG/Mytyres.co.uk: Buying Great Value Tyres Online Doesn’t Mean Missing out on Professional Fitting22.3.2019 17:15:00 EETTiedote

Spring is just around the corner, and it’s time for drivers to start thinking about changing to summer tyres. However, a tyre check may show that your current summer tyres are getting old, worn out, or have visible damage, such as cracks or bumps. If this is the case, then it's time for a new set of tyres. The legal minimum tread depth is 1.6 mm, however experts recommend significantly more – summer tyres should be replaced even if the tread depth is 3 mm. Regardless of mileage, you should change your tyres at least every eight to ten years. This is because the rubber starts to harden, the tyres lose grip on the road, and driving performance is affected. Of course, a set of four new tyres is a significant investment – authorised workshops can often charge between 250 and 350 pounds. If you want to save money, consider the alternatives: the result is an increasing number of customers turning to online shops such as Mytyres.co.uk to buy new tyres. The market share of tyres sold online ha
