Selenia-Sun-Ultra-EOL

If you use a Hologic Selenia manufactured between January 19th, 2007 and December 7th 2012, you may remember the day the letter from Hologic's field service arm came to your mailbox with the dreaded news: your system was declared end of life (EOL), and Hologic would no longer support it after May 3rd, 2019. Or- maybe you heard about the end of support through the grapevine instead.

It seems like the cost of 3D tomo equipment is the only barrier to entry that's still hanging around, but there's good news on that front too. If you're looking to get into 3D tomo mammography on a shoe-string budget, there's an option that can get you started for a more manageable rate. For your consideration: try leasing a GE Essential 3D Tomo unit with Senoclaire.

Mammography-service-price-2019

Mammography screening is the first, and best line of defense in detecting breast cancer early. This is why having a maintenance and repair plan in place for your mammography equipment is so important.

We've compiled average pricing in 2020 for one year of our most inclusive mammo service coverage plan, compared to the cost of similar coverage from the major mammography manufacturers. We've also broken down a few of the key factors that will be a part of determining your individual price, so you can know what to expect from independent service organizations as you plan and shop for your mammography machine's future maintenance and repair.
