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.

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.
