Despite the budget struggles many hospitals and imaging centers are experiencing, digital mammography has proven to be a solid investment for many providers, according to new KLAS (Orem, Utah) findings.

The report — entitled, Digital Mammography: Hot Market in a Cool Economy — asserts that while a switch from traditional film mammography to digital technology can present a learning curve, many clinicians believe digital mammography pays for itself when done right. It also states that many of those who have made the switch to full-field digital mammography systems have increased their capacity for patient throughput, leading to a strong ROI for the new technology.

Of the four vendors rated, Hologic Selenia earned the top performance score (88.3 out of 100) by a slim margin over GE Senographe Essential (88.0). Other products assessed in the report are FUJIFILM Aspire ClearView-CSm and Siemens MAMMOMAT NovationDR.

The research also noted that image quality is rarely a differentiator in digital mammography purchasing decisions or vendor performance scoring. The more critical metrics, it says, are physician preference and service and support.
