Founded in 1986, Hologic is the leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of proprietary x-ray and ultrasound bone analyzer systems. With more than 4,100 installations worldwide, the Company's ACCLAIM series of x-ray densitometers and Sahara ultrasound densitometers are used for the measurement of bone density to assist in the diagnosis and monitoring of metabolic bone diseases such as osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease that affects more than 28 million Americans, primarily women, and costs the U.S. healthcare system approximately $14 billion annually. Hologic's objective is to be the leading supplier of high-quality, innovative and clinically valuable systems and tests that address a growing market for osteoporosis prevention and treatment - a key element of women's health. Acquired in September 1996, FluoroScan Imaging Systems, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hologic, manufactures and distributes low intensity, real time mini c-arm x-ray imaging devices which provide high resolution images at radiation levels and at a cost well below those of conventional x-ray and fluoroscopic equipment. Headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, Hologic employs over 300 people worldwide. Hologic maintains an active research and development program dedicated to bringing a continuing series of new products to market and to maintaining Hologic's position as the technology leader in the fields of bone densitometry and mini c-arm imaging systems.
