Hologic Medical Devices
1 – NovaSure®
NovaSure® is a medical device used in a minimally invasive procedure called endometrial ablation. It is designed to treat heavy menstrual bleeding in women who have completed their childbearing years and no longer wish to have children.
The procedure involves inserting a thin wand-like device into the uterus through the cervix. The device then emits precisely controlled radiofrequency energy that removes the lining of the uterus, which is responsible for menstruation. The treatment usually takes about five minutes and is performed under local anesthesia.
NovaSure® is a safe and effective treatment option for women who suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding, also known as menorrhagia. Menorrhagia can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal imbalances, uterine fibroids, and polyps.
2 – Eviva®
Eviva® breast biopsy devices are advanced medical tools that are designed to enable healthcare professionals to perform breast biopsies more effectively and efficiently. These devices are designed to provide greater access to patients who require a biopsy, which is a procedure to remove a small amount of breast tissue for further analysis.
By enabling access to more patients, Eviva® breast biopsy devices help healthcare providers to identify breast cancer earlier, when treatment options are most effective. In addition, these devices help to reduce the anxiety and discomfort associated with traditional breast biopsy methods.
Eviva® breast biopsy devices use advanced imaging technology, such as ultrasound or mammography, to precisely locate and target the area of concern in the breast. Once the target area has been identified, a small incision is made and the device is inserted to remove a small tissue sample for analysis. This process is typically quick, safe, and minimally invasive, allowing patients to return to their normal activities soon after the procedure.
