Hologic Earns CE Mark Extension for RFID Tag

December 2, 2019

Hologic has earned extended CE Mark approval for its LOCalizer radiofrequency identification (RFID) tag for long-term placement in breast lesions.

The device is used to accurately mark and target breast lesions during surgery and eliminates the need to place a wire before beginning the procedure.
