Hologic Partners with Google Cloud to Enhance Cervical Cancer Screening

Hologic, Inc. announced on Feb. 1 that it has entered into a multi-year strategic collaboration with Google Cloud to augment the screening of cervical cancer by the integration of Google Cloud’s machine learning technologies with Hologic’s Genius™ Digital Diagnostics System. Hologic expects that Genius Digital Diagnostics System will derive more actionable insights from cytology slides for cytotechnologists and pathologists, as Google Cloud architecture further extends the system’s capabilities. The company is promising “to transform screening and accelerate the eradication of cervical cancer across the globe.”

The Collaboration

Hologic, Inc. is a medical technology company primarily focused on improving women’s health and well-being through early detection and treatment. Genius Digital Diagnostics is a digital cytology platform that combines artificial intelligence (AI) with advanced digital imaging to help identify pre-cancerous lesions and cancer cells in women.

Hologic is enhancing the deep learning component of the Genius Digital Diagnostics system with Google Cloud. The expectation is that the Genius Digital Diagnostics System will derive even more actionable insights from cytology slides for cytotechnologists and pathologists. Google Cloud also provides a secure and reliable cloud data architecture to further extend the system’s capabilities.

“Hologic has been at the forefront of cervical cancer screening for more than 30 years, and we are building on that legacy with this strategic collaboration,” said Kevin Thornal, President of Hologic’s Diagnostic Solutions Division in a press release. “Enhancing our use of AI with Google Cloud’s machine learning capabilities and cloud architecture is the next natural step in this journey forward.”
