Educating and connecting women with heavy periods
This website is funded and developed by Hologic, Inc. As a leading global healthcare and diagnostics company, we strive to make advances toward greater certainty for our customers by providing them with cutting-edge technology that makes a real difference. We move to narrow the gap between doubt and confidence and work to achieve both incremental and transformational progress to improve patients’ lives.
We are passionate and resolute in our purpose; we call it The Science of Sure. This ethos is extended throughout our core offerings: Breast & Skeletal Health, Diagnostic, and GYN Surgical Solutions. We believe it is our responsibility to offer our customers ever-greater certainty – what we call progressive certainty – by pushing the boundaries of science.
For example, in 2002, we introduced the NovaSure® endometrial ablation system for the rapid and effective treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding. We later introduced the MyoSure® system, which offers physicians a simple, accurate way to remove intrauterine fibroids and polyps.
We also develop products and equipment for:
- Mammography and breast biopsy
- Breast magnetic resonance imaging
- Radiation treatment for early-stage breast cancer
- Cervical cancer screening
- Osteoporosis assessment
- Preterm birth risk assessment
- Molecular diagnostic products including human papillomavirus (HPV) testing
We are proud of our achievements and committed to helping women everywhere lead longer, healthier lives. It is our reason for being and the single focus of every breakthrough we pursue, every solution we design and every investment we make.
