The collaboration will be bolstered by RadNet's recent acquisition of DeepHealth (Cambridge, MA), which uses machine learning to develop software tools to improve cancer detection and provide clinical decision support. Led by Dr. Gregory Sorensen, DeepHealth's team of A.I. experts is focused on enabling industry-leading care by providing products that clinicians and patients can trust. In addition, the DeepHealth team will integrate its A.I. tools within the Hologic ecosystem. "When seeking a partner and reviewing options amongst all mammography vendors, we selected to integrate our tools with Hologic's market-leading technology," said Dr. Sorensen. "Hologic's systems produce the highest level of spatial resolution in the market. Hologic also has the largest domestic footprint and market share in 3D Mammography systems. This integration will allow the DeepHealth team to train its algorithms for use with the most advanced screening technology possible. As Hologic and RadNet share their respective capabilities and tools, greater efficiency and accuracy can be achieved by our radiologists."

"Much like RadNet, Hologic is a highly innovative company and market leader in breast health," said Howard Berger, MD, RadNet's Chairman and CEO. "When Hologic's leading screening technology is paired with RadNet's approximately 1.2 million annual screening mammograms, the resulting dataset becomes a powerful tool to train algorithms. We see the future as being transformative for both of our organizations."

"We have witnessed how the application of our Genius AI technology platform has improved cancer detection, operational efficiency and clinical decision support across the breast cancer care continuum," said Samir Parikh, Hologic's Global Vice President for Research and Development, Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions. "We look forward to building upon these advances in collaboration with Dr. Sorensen and the RadNet team to expand the use of machine learning, big data applications and automated algorithms impacting global breast care."
