Women's imaging firm Hologic and its Netherlands' distributor Tromp Medical will supply mammography systems for the Dutch Breast Cancer Screening Program.
Under the contract, Hologic's new 3Dimensions mammography systems will be installed in mobile and stationary screening facilities across the country starting in 2018.
The 3Dimensions system features Clarity HD high-resolution 3D imaging and is designed to reveal subtle lesions and fine calcifications to help pinpoint early cancers.
The Dutch Breast Cancer Screening Program provides women between the ages of 50 and 75 with a mammogram once every two years. Through the program, approximately 1.3 million women in the Netherlands are invited for screening each year.
