The European Reference Organization (EUREF) Council for Quality Assured Breast Screening and Diagnostic Services has awarded ‘EUREF Type Test’ certification to Hologic’s Selenia Dimensions digital mammography system in two dimensional (2D) mode.

Hologic is a developer, manufacturer and supplier of diagnostics products, medical imaging systems and surgical products dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of women.

Hologic’s core business units are focused on breast health, diagnostics, GYN surgical, and skeletal health.

The certification ensures hospitals and imaging centers that the Hologic Selenia Dimensions system in 2D mode has passed a rigorous series of physics and clinical tests demonstrating the system meets the image quality, radiation exposure, and stability standards set by EUREF for screening and diagnostic mammography equipment.

Hologic International senior vice president and general manager David Harding said the quality and stability of the system certified by EUREF combined with the recent 3D approval by the FDA sets the Selenia Dimensions breast cancer screening and diagnostic platform in a class of its own.
