Hologic Trident radiography system wins FDA nod

Hologic has received the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for its Trident specimen radiography system.

The Trident specimen radiography is a mobile system designed for use in the operating room where breast tissue is surgically excised, and in biopsy suites where minimally-invasive, stereotactic or ultrasound breast biopsies are performed.

The new system is self-contained and eliminates the need for samples to be taken to the radiology department for X-ray imaging, thus improving workflow and reducing procedure time for the patient.

The system’s selenium-based detector, with its 12 cm x 14 cm active imaging area, provides high quality imaging for the majority of breast specimens.

The system also provides one-button automatic exposure control and one button export to Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) or to the Hologic SecurView diagnostic workstation.
