MARLBOROUGH, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX), a global leader in women’s health, today announced that its 3Dimensions™ Mammography System has received EUREF Type Test Certification from the Organization benchmark for quality breast screening and diagnostic services (www. EUREF.org).1 It is the first digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) system to receive such recognition, and one of nine mammography systems to achieve certification.
The mission of the non-profit organization EUREF is to raise standards by bringing together the best examples of quality control in mammography screening from regional and national breast cancer programs across Europe. Type Test Certification assures hospitals and imaging centers that 3Dimensions 2D and 3D systems have each passed a rigorous series of mechanical and clinical tests demonstrating that the system meets standards for image quality, radiation exposure and stability requirements defined by EUREF for screening and diagnostic mammography equipment. . Both mammography systems were tested at two clinical sites in the Netherlands for screening and diagnostic purposes.
“The work carried out by EUREF goes a long way to ensuring that women receive quality testing and care across Europe. We are honored to be the first DBT system to meet their exacting standards,” said Tanja Brycker, Vice President, Strategic Development, Breast and Skeletal Health and Gynecological Surgical Solutions at Hologic. “EUREF certification is not easy to obtain. We are proud that our 3Dimensions system has joined two of our other mammography systems in being recognized. These certifications reflect our commitment to developing high-quality medical technology that improves women’s health.
The 3Dimensions system features revolutionary enhancements designed to transform the patient experience without compromising speed, dose or accuracy. The system is the fastest, highest resolution breast tomosynthesis system available,2 and clinically proven to be more comfortable3 for patients while providing an improved workflow for radiologists. In addition to this certification, EUREF has previously certified the company’s Selenia® and Selenia Dimensions® 2D digital mammography systems.
