DEXA Price Private Vs Reseller.jpg

When you hit the market for a used DEXA scanner, it won't take you too long to find that facilities listing their own units for sale sometimes offer them for significantly lower prices than third-party resellers. At first glance, this can seem like a compelling selling point- one that might have you leaning toward a private lister. With a closer look, however, the reasons for the price disparity become clear, as does the overall added value of working with a third-party reseller.

In the video below, we'll guide you through what you typically get when you purchase a DEXA scanner from a private listing compared to what you typically get when you purchase from a third-party reseller.

Hologic DEXA Error Logs.jpg

If you've been experiencing issues with your Hologic DEXA system, one of the first places to check for more information on the problem is your system's error logs. Accessing these shows the error code for the problem- valuable information to pass on if you need to place a service call. 

Having the error code in hand, enables an engineer to have parts sent ahead or to bring them along, allowing for the system to be repaired in a single visit. This is the fastest way to get your system back up and running. 

Here is a short video to guide you through where to find your Hologic DEXA’s error log so you can better inform your service provider and empower them to get you scanning again ASAP.

Anyone considering the purchase of a Hologic Selenia mammography system expects it to come with some compression paddles, and rightfully so. Buying a mammo without paddles is a little like buying a car without tires- you can't get anywhere without them. But, in a marketplace where dozens of paddle varieties are available, which types should a buyer look for? Which types might be considered a "standard" set of paddles for the Selenia?

While there really isn't a universally agreed upon standard paddle set, there are a number of paddles used so frequently by technologists that they could be considered standard on a de facto basis. The video below will fill you in on which mammography paddles are likely to be included in a Hologic Selenia purchase.
