4 Keys for Buying a Hologic Dimensions 3D Tomo Mammography Unit

Hologic 3D Tomo Value Header

If you own a 2D mammography system, you’ve probably seen most of your competition step up to 3D. 3D systems have been proven better at detecting cancer- especially in dense and/or fatty breasts. More insurance providers have also come aboard with increased reimbursement for 3D studies. With these factors at play, the feasibility of justifying a 3D price tag seems more doable for more facilities.

Your next question might be, “Can I find a quality 3D system on the secondary market?” 6-12 months ago, the answer might have been, "Probably not." Today, however, there is a slow, steady supply of units coming onto the secondary market. We believe that purchasing a previously-owned Hologic Dimensions 3D Tomo unit can be one of the best mammography equipment values if the seller is reputable and the buyer is well-informed.

To help those of you who may be looking for a Dimensions 3D unit, know what to look for and what to expect, we'll share four tips that we've seen buyers apply for better equipment and smoother projects.

What's Next for Discovery DEXA Service and Support?

Hologic Discovery DEXA Service

If you've been conducting bone density scans for a while, you know about how long you can expect a model to be around before the manufacturer begins weaning users off it with "end of support" and "end of life" (EOL) declarations. In the case of Hologic, you've seen the QDR 4000, QDR 4500, Delphi, and Explorer all go the way of the dodo in just the last ten years. If any of you are counting, the Discovery series has been around for fourteen years- and Hologic already declared in 2017 that they no longer support Discovery computers running Windows XP.

We don't bring up the Discovery's age because we want you to fret over your "oldie but a goodie" DEXA scanner. Instead, we want to reassure you that whether the product line is declared EOL next year, the year after, or 2025, you won't need to ditch your Discovery right away, a brand-new scanner won't be required, and the OEM won't be your only option for ongoing parts or support.

We're going to share with you why a Hologic Discovery DEXA scanner will continue to be a viable model for years to come, and how Hologic's eventual EOL declaration for the product line might even save you some money.
