The Selenia Dimensions 2D acquisition workstation features integrated x-ray control capabilities and an image acquisition console that offers a unique ergonomic design and an efficient user interface. An intuitive touchscreen display and an icon-driven user interface make it easy to use, improving patient throughput.

Images can be acquired and reviewed within seconds, and the imaging parameters can be adjusted quickly to meet the requirements of the examination. Several weeks of mammography examinations can stay locally on the acquisition workstation, to efficiently accommodate recalls.

Selenia Dimensions 2D has built-in quality controls which streamline system QC and assures optimal performance. Reject and repeat analysis reports are generated automatically, greatly simplifying administrative reporting. Altogether it`s a better way to capture, analyze and share information across the team.

Features

Faster and lower dose 3D exams are now possible with the C-View software option.

The Hologic Selenia can reconstruct 2D images from Hologic 3D Mammography data without the need for 2D exposures. Images generated from C-View software can be used in place of traditional 2D images as part of the 3D breast exam. The 2D images and 3D slices are reviewed together to make a clinical decision or diagnosis. C-View software makes lower dose Hologic 3D Mammography exams possible — and the combined 3D and C-View exam offers superior clinical performance compared with 2D alone.

High-resolution display

  • Images that can be instantly viewed on a 3MP DICOM-calibrated display, providing exceptionally fine detail.
  • Allows prior breast imaging studies to be recalled, making it possible to view new and prior images side-by-side.

Optimized face shield:

  • Retractable to help when positioning patients.
  • Stationary during 3D imaging, allowing patients to be positioned as they are for 2D imaging.

FAST Paddle system

  • Conforms to natural contours of the breast, providing greater comfort to the patient and more even compression across the entire breast.
  • All paddles used for 2D and 3D imaging.

Streamlined tube head

  • Streamlined tube head and SID of 70 cm, making positioning easier and providing more space for interventional procedures.

Multiple procedure modes

  • 2D only.
  • 2D + 3D.*
  • C-View 2D + 3D.
  • 3D only (for diagnostic use).*

Each system is capable of interventional procedures using the Affirm breast biopsy guidance system (link to Affirm system product page). This system offers both stereotactic and 3D biopsy procedure options.

Diagnostic Advantages

  • Earlier detection of breast cancers.
  • Clearer lesion images.
  • Reduction in the number of unnecessary biopsies, minimizing patient anxiety and unnecessary costs.
