Selenia-Sun-Ultra-EOL

If you use a Hologic Selenia manufactured between January 19th, 2007 and December 7th 2012, you may remember the day the letter from Hologic's field service arm came to your mailbox with the dreaded news: your system was declared end of life (EOL), and Hologic would no longer support it after May 3rd, 2019.

There's no debating it: from the II-based days of the Advantx to the digital transition first embodied in the Innova 2000, the GE line of cath labs has enjoyed an incredible run of success over the years.
