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.
