Comparing Mammography Systems

Before you make a choice of mammography systems that you want to buy it’s vital to make sure that you have a comparison between systems. One system may be better than another in terms of technical specs. There’s a great possibility that one system may actually be better as far as preference, location, space, and patients is concerned. It’s important to compare the systems, because without the knowing, you may make the wrong decision.


The first thing to remember is that the brand does not make the quality. While GE is a good bet so to is a system from Lorad or Siemens. Below is a comparison chart that gives a side by side listing of select features from systems in each of those brands.

It’s important to purchase a system that you are comfortable with. What you chose will depend on the procedure, if you want to perform a biopsy and it will also depend on whether or not you are interested in an digital or analog system.


As you plan your system purchase the size of your facility will be a vital player in terms of your decision. A smaller system may be better, or a bigger system may be what you are looking for.
