Genius™ Digital Diagnostics System for Cervical Cancer Screening

With the Genius Digital Diagnostics System, cutting-edge image analysis thoroughly interrogates every cell on a ThinPrep® Pap test image to curate a single view of the most clinically relevant objects. The new algorithm – GeniusTM Cervical AI – narrows tens of thousands of cells down to an AI-generated gallery, which arms healthcare providers with the critical information they need to guide earlier detection and better treatment decisions for the patients in their care.

“We strive to develop innovative solutions that meet our customers’ needs. We are delighted in the overwhelming positive feedback from the customers who have been the first in the world to use this technology,” said Andrew Pieprzyk, vice president, Strategic Development Diagnostics, International, Hologic. “The technology enhances the capabilities of individual laboratories and also has the potential to radically transform how cervical cancer screening is carried out, by enabling laboratories within the same network to collaborate across the world to manage the case load.”

Hologic has been working with leading laboratories in Europe to give them an early opportunity to evaluate the new system including ZotzKlimas Diagnostics Laboratories in Germany, where Founder, Dietmar Klimas, M.D., has led the review.

“As one of the largest labs in Germany, our main objective is to deliver accurate results to doctors and ultimately patients,” said Dr Klimas. “We were one of the first in the world to work with the Genius Digital Diagnostics system. The trial proved to me that this system can help my team to accurately process samples faster and more easily. We are continuing to use it following the trial.”

The Genius Digital Diagnostics System enables seamless and dynamic collaboration across laboratories within a network, connecting pathologists with remote review capabilities so each patient can benefit from the collective knowledge of geographically dispersed experts. Digital case review promises to enhance the experience for lab partners by improving workflow and accelerating review time.

Hologic now offers the first CE-marked comprehensive cervical cancer screening portfolio from sample collection to digital diagnosis.1 The Genius Digital Diagnostics System consists of the GeniusTM Digital Imager for image acquisition, the GeniusTM Cervical AI algorithm for analyzing images, the GeniusTM Image Management Server (IMS) for storing images and the GeniusTM Review Station for case review. The complete system is scalable, designed to fit the present and future needs of laboratories.
