Bone densitometry firm Hologic enjoyed a strong fiscal 1996 thanksto higher sales of its Acclaim series of dual-energy x-ray bonedensitometers. The Waltham, MA, company's acquisition of miniC-arm manufacturer FluoroScan Imaging Systems also contributedto Hologic's revenue growth.

For the year (end-September), Hologic posted revenues of $91.6million, up 62% compared with sales of $56.5 million in fiscal1995. The company's net income for the year stood at $11.4 million,compared with $3.3 million the year before, when a legal battlewith Lunar squeezed Hologic's profits.

For the fourth quarter, Hologic had revenues of $24.4 million,up 46% compared with sales of $16.7 million in the fourth quarterof 1995. The company's net income was $2.1 million, compared with$988,000 in the same period a year ago.
