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. When you have a plan, your facility can keep equipment downtime to a minimum, keep reimbursements, and reduce costs on replacement parts.

We've compiled current average pricing for one year of our most inclusive mammo service coverage plan, as well as 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.

Fischer-MammoTest-Service-Version-2

Due to an announcement from Carestream in late 2018 of their discontinuance of service for the Fischer/Siemens MammoTest stereotactic table, we've been fielding requests from an increasing amount of Mammotest users and renters concerned about ongoing service and support. If your facility is among those likely to be affected, there are several thoughts that may be going through your head: "Can we find another service provider? Do we need to consider another used/refurbished table option (i.e. Hologic Multicare)? Can we justify the purchase of a new Hologic Affirm 3D Prone Biopsy Table for 300k+?"

We want to let you know that there are several ways Block Imaging can help alleviate the issue. Keep reading to see several capabilities you can take advantage of to continue offering breast biopsy procedures in your area.

4 Keys for Buying a Hologic Dimensions 3D Tomo Mammography Unit

Posted by Jason Block

Hologic 3D Tomo Value Header

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.
