Hologic will provide all imaging machinery for Dutch mammography program

All mammography systems for the Dutch Breast Cancer Screening Program will be provided by Hologic, Inc. beginning in 2018, according to a recent press release. The multi-year agreement, which has a dual partnership with Tromp Medical, will make sure that Hologic's new 3DimensionsTM mammography systems will be installed in mobile and stationary screening facilities across the Netherlands.  

“Hologic is grateful for the opportunity to extend access to its new, state-of-the-art 3DimensionsTM system to Dutch women starting in 2018,” said Jan Verstreken, Hologic’s regional president for Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and Canada, in the press release. “We were proud to learn that during the procurement process, the 3DimensionsTM system was ranked number one in ergonomics and patient comfort by clinicians and screening participants and are hopeful that all Dutch women will take advantage of the invitation to get screened on this system.” 

According to the press release, this agreement is the result of a multifaceted public procurement process conducted by Facilitaire Samenwerking Bevolkingsonderzoeken (FSB) on behalf of the five regional screening organizations responsible for nationwide breast screening in the Netherlands.
