SenoRx today announced that Hologic and its wholly owned subsidiary, Cytyc, have filed a lawsuit against SenoRx in the U. S. District Court, Northern District of California, San Jose Division.

According to the Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based company, the complaint alleges patent infringement of certain Hologic brachytherapy patent claims seeking unspecified monetary damages and an injunction against SenoRx for infringement of certain named Hologic patents.

SenoRx said it has reviewed the claims made by Hologic, and is “confident in its proprietary intellectual property and intends to vigorously defend itself.”

Hologic told Health Imaging News the company does not comment on pending lawsuits.
