MAMMOGRAPHY QA ACCESSORIES

As the leader in Mammography and Breast Health QA, we are here to help.



Breast Compression QC Device

This device measures the compression force to assure accuracy and reproducibility. Appropriate compression of the breast may be the single most important parameter of screen film mammography; it lowers the radiation dose, enhances image contrast and improves visibility of pathologies.

Force Range: 3-30 kg (6-66 lbs)
Accuracy: ± 0.27 kg
Contact Area: 8.5 cm diameter
Size: 11.5 x 9 x 5 cm (4.5 x 3.5 x 2 in)
Weight: 0.91 kg (2 lbs)
Scale Resized
