Mammography is the mammary glands instrumental non-invasive diagnosis method which allows timely detection of pathological changes in tissues and organ structures. The mammography procedure is in high demand among patients, as it is part of breast cancer prevention.
Mammographic examinations are conducted using special medical diagnostic equipment – a mammography machine. Modern devices allow detecting and localizing neoplasms and indurations in the mammary glands and diagnosing oncological diseases development. The diagnostic technique is absolutely painless, conducted without preliminary preparations and lasts only a few minutes. Then the patient is given ready test results.
On the medical equipment market, you can buy a device to carry out the following kinds of mammography:
All the aforementioned devices utilize the X-ray examination method. Despite the use of X-rays during the examination, a patient is exposed to minimal radiation, which does not affect their health. Film mammography systems are also called analog mammographs. They allow making high-precision imaging, fixed on the film. Film devices are easier to maintain, and they cost less. Digital devices are more precise and provide high-resolution images. The digital device accuracy reaches 93%, and a ready image can be edited using both the device built-in instruments and the dedicated software installed on a personal computer. A digital mammogram will cost more than that an analog one. This is due to the higher screening quality, the possibility of serial X- ray shots, the resulting image digital processing, improved performance, and patient capacity. A good mammography system is capable of serving 5 to 7 patients per hour.
The most important technical characteristics of such machines are:
The prices of some systems can be as low as 5000 USD or less, while the newest, high-tier systems may cost as much as 50.000 USD. The manufacturer plays a crucial role in making up the price. The more famous the brand the more expensive the machine, as the brand name itself says a lot about the quality and longevity. HOLOGIC,GE,PLANMED,SIEMENS,FUJI, PHILIPS are considered to be the most well-known. Besides, one should understand that new and demo mammography machine will cost more than refurbished or used ones. What is the difference? New machines have never been used. They have the manufacturer’s warranty. Demo machines are, as a rule, exhibition models. They have not been used in clinical practice but they have been often presented at exhibitions. As a result, the price is lower. Refurbished machines are used machines that have undergone improvements (refurbishment can be done at the manufacturer’s facilities or in private repair shops)
