March 28, 2011 – A digital mammography system in two-dimensional mode has been awarded “EUREF Type Test” certification by the European Reference Organization (EUREF) Council for Quality Assured Breast Screening and Diagnostic Services. The Selenia Dimensions 2D system, from Hologic, is one of only three products to have received EUREF approval to date.
The mission of the non-profit EUREF council is to raise standards by bringing together, at the European level, the best examples of quality control in mammography screening from regional and national breast cancer screening programs. EUREF mammographic type test certification ensures hospitals and imaging centers that the system in 2-D mode has passed a rigorous series of physics and clinical tests. These tests demonstrate the system meets the image quality, radiation exposure and stability standards set by EUREF for screening and diagnostic mammography equipment.
