      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.

      Where Mammography Machines are Used?

      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.

      Types of  Mammography Machines

      On the medical equipment market, you can buy a device to carry out the following kinds of mammography:

      • projection;
      • film;
      • digital.

      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.

      Important Specifications

      The most important technical characteristics of such machines are:

      1. X-ray tube specifications – the main ones are as follows:  anode heat storage capacity (directly affects the system’s effectiveness) and focal spot sizes (the smaller the X-ray tube focal spot size, the clearer the image).
      2. The generator type and power capacity – high-frequency X-ray generators are preferable since they increase X-ray tube operating life providing maximum safety for patients. Taking the generator power capacity into consideration, you should also remember about the X-ray machine type: portable devices’ standard power capacity may be 3, 6, 15, or 30 kW; stationary X-ray machines’ power capacity range on average from 40 kW to 80 kW. Moreover, the more powerful the generator is, the less exposure time it takes, and consequently, the less radiation patients are exposed to. The Philips Practix Convenio portable X-ray system with 30 kW power capacity and the Siemens Axiom Luminos TF Eco stationary X-ray machine with 65 kW power capacity are excellent options of respective types.
      3. X-ray tube mounting types – stationary machines have two mounting options: floor-mounted and ceiling-mounted X-ray tubes. Floor-mounted ones are certainly cheaper to install, and do not require specific room dimensions. But if you expect a large patient stream, it would be best to devote some more funds and purchase the ceiling-mounted X-ray tube because it is more reliable and much easier to use. Siemens Multix Top may be regarded as a desktop X-ray machine.
      4. An X-ray table is an essential part for any stationary machine. There are tables with either fixed or adjustable height. If the table can move vertically, it’s possible to adapt the X-ray system to examine patients with restricted movement capabilities, as well as for patients with serious medical conditions. The maximum load on the X-ray table is an equally important feature. Most systems allow examining patients with a body weight of up to 200 kilograms. However, some manufacturers produce machines with X-ray tables withstanding even 290 kilograms load and higher.

      How Much Does Mammogram machine cost?

      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)
