Hologic's Selenia digital mammography system, with a tungsten tube, has received 'Mammographic Type Test' certification by the European Reference Organization (EUREF) Council for Quality Assured Breast Screening and Diagnostic Services.
Hologic claimed that Selenia system is the first mammography system of any type to receive the certification.
Hologic said that the EUREF mammographic type test certification ensures hospitals and imaging centers that Hologic’s Selenia systems have passed a series of physics and clinical tests demonstrating that the systems meet the image quality, radiation exposure, and stability standards set out by EUREF for screening and diagnostic mammography equipment.
Peter Soltani, senior vice president of Breast Health at Hologic, said: “Our customers tell us they buy the Selenia system for a number of reasons. Two reasons show up on almost everyone’s list exceptional image quality and low patient dose.
“The EUREF mammographic type test confirms what we’ve learned through our own clinical trials and scientific investigations the Selenia system is optimal for use in mammography. With more than 6,000 systems installed, Selenia is the most popular digital mammography system in the world.”
