Philips is focused on diagnostic imaging, image-guided therapy, patient monitoring and health informatics, as well as in consumer health and home care, while Hologic focuses on improving women's health and well-being through early detection and treatment. The collaboration combines Hologic's mammography technologies and Philips' portfolio of ultrasound, MRI, CT, and X-ray systems, advanced informatics and broad range of services, including maintenance, upgrade, training and operational performance management services.

Under the agreement, Philips will be able to offer select products from Hologic's breast health portfolio as part of multi-modality deals for hospitals and health systems. This will include Hologic's 3Dimensions mammography system, which is considered to be the fastest, highest resolution breast tomosynthesis system in the industry, as well as other technologies for breast screening and interventional radiology. The multi-year, non-exclusive global partnership agreement allows for customized regional implementation to best meet the individual needs of each customer.

"No two women are alike, and we are teaming up with care providers and leading industry partners to support the delivery of a tailored, seamless breast care experience for women," said Rob Cascella, CEO Diagnosis & Treatment businesses for Royal Philips. "That is why I am very pleased to announce our new partnership with Hologic for mammography. This partnership allows us to offer a complete set of innovative diagnostic imaging systems, software and services to our customers, including Hologic's market-leading mammography solutions for breast screening and diagnosis of women in need of care."

"Hologic believes in enabling doctors with superior technology that improves women's health through early detection and treatment," said Pete Valenti, Hologic's Division President, Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions. "Our market-leading mammography solutions perfectly complement Philips' portfolio, making Hologic the right industry partner for this first-of-its-kind collaboration. Now, through the partnership, Hologic can join Philips when engaging with customers on projects that were not previously possible for the two companies alone. It's a win for everyone involved, including the customers and patients we serve."
