Dimensions 3D Highlight.jpg

Given the FDA's relatively recent approval of 3D tomo mammography and the high-end price tags on new 3D mammo systems, the technology hasn't been, in a financial sense, widely accessible to many smaller, lower-volume imaging facilities. Now, however, with Hologic's "gap" product- the upgradeable Dimensions 2D- finding its way onto the secondary market, the scene has changed and accessibility has increased.

In the video below, we'll give you some background on the Dimensions product line as well as how it can help you move from 2D to 3D digital mammography more affordably than ever.

Posted by Jason Block

Nov 10, 2017 10:09:37 AM

Retrofit kits that allow a facility to upgrade analog X-ray machines with direct digital imaging capabilities have been around for years. Now, there is a kit that brings the same ease of upgrading to facilities currently using analog mammography units with film or CR cassettes. This upgrade kit is called Pearl, and we're positive that the benefits of upgrading will speak for themselves to any mammogram provider who is considering a step forward in their breast cancer screening technology. That said, we'll dive right in below with what a Pearl digital mammography upgrade kit is capable of and what those capabilities can mean for you and your patients.

GE Essential Mammography Paddles: Which Are 'Standard'?

GE Essential Paddles.jpg

If you're searching the secondary market for a good value on a GE Essential mammography system, you may have noticed that not all of the offerings come with the same selection of compression paddles. This isn't unusual, but for a first-time mammo buyer, it can be a touch confusing. With so many different types of paddles out there, which types should a buyer look for? Which types make up a "standard" set for the Essential?

There's not really a consensus around what makes a "standard" paddle set, but there are a number of paddles that techs use so often they could be considered standard on a de facto basis. The list below will fill you in on the seven to nine paddles that are likely to be part of a GE Essential mammography purchase.
