July 30, 2018 -- A U.S. judge has initially ruled in favor of women's imaging firm Hologic in a patent infringement lawsuit against Fujifilm Medical Systems USA.

The patents pertain to x-ray mammography with tomosynthesis and other related mammography technologies found in Hologic's Selenia Dimensions and 3Dimensions systems.

As part of the initial ruling, an administrative law judge of the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) ruled that Fujifilm infringed all the patents brought to trial and rejected Fujifilm's defenses against these patents. As a result of the ruling, the judge recommended an exclusion order that prevents the importation of infringing Fujifilm products into the U.S., as well as a cease-and-desist order preventing the further sale and marketing of infringing Fujifilm products in the U.S.

A final ruling by the ITC is expected by November 26.
