Brad Keller, Ph.D, Director, Clinical Research Breast Health, Hologic, Inc., Ashwini Kshirsagar, Ph.D, Chief Scientist, Clinical Solutions, Research and Development, Hologic, Inc. and Andrew Smith, Ph.D., Vice President, Image Research Breast Health, Hologic. Inc.  This whitepaper documents how Hologic's product, 3DQuorum 6-mm slices known as SmartSlices can significantly reduce the number of slices and file sizes in a tomosynthesis dataset, while maintaining clinical performance compared to 1-mm datasets. The fewer number of total slices in the study allows a decrease in radiologist interpretation time, saving on average 1 hour per reader in an 8-hour day.

Authored by Cary S. Kaufman, MD, FACS, this white paper will discuss his decision to replace the use of surgical clips to mark the lumpectomy excision site with a bioabsorbable implant that serves as both a surgical marker for future medical procedures (such as radiation targeting, radiation therapy planning, mammographic follow-up, etc.), and as a scaff old to support tissue healing and breast contour (BioZorb® 3D Bioabsorbable Marker).
