UCLA's all digital mammography environment is exclusive of the Hologic Selenia digital mammography system in our Westwood and Santa Monica locations. Recently, Hologic received the EUREF Mammographic Type Test Certification.
Click here to read the official press release announcing that the Hologic Selenia digital mammography system with a tungsten tube has received European Reference Organization (EUREF) "Mammographic Type Test" certification. The system is the first mammography system of any type to receive this European Certification.
EUREF certification is much more difficult than getting CE mark approval. EUREF certification ensures users that the Hologic Selenia system passed the rigorous series of physics and clinical tests demonstrating that the systems meet the image quality, radiation exposure, and stability standards set out by EUREF for screening and diagnostic mammography equipment. This is an amazing accomplishment that involved physicists, radiologists, radiographers, and administrators at multiple high volume Selenia systems at sites in the UK and The Netherlands.
