Digital Mammography: Hologic Selenia

Students will learn how to evaluate image quality problems, determine if the mammographic unit is the source of the image problem, and take the appropriate steps to correct the deficiency.


Start Date: Monday, Apr 26 2021

End Date: Friday, Apr 30 2021


Mammography may be the most dynamic of all of today’s imaging modalities. With the new regulatory and accreditation procedures, and advancements in technology, the service professional is becoming more involved in maintaining the quality of the mammographic images produced. This course is designed to give the service professional the insight to evaluate image quality problems, determine if the mammographic unit is the source of the image problem and take the appropriate steps to correct the deficiency.

Given today’s regulatory environment maintaining the system at peak performance is of the utmost importance.

At the completion of this course students will be able to perform all Selenia system maintenance procedures including:

  • System installation
  • Calibration
  • Gantry maintenance
  • DROC maintenance
  • Imaging chain maintenance
  • Detector pixel mapping
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Troubleshooting


To attend this course, the service professional must have attended Phase I and possess fundamental knowledge and understanding of the principles of X-ray and basic electronics.

Note: Due to copyright laws, students are required to purchase and bring to class a copy of the Selenia manuals set. Contact your dealer to order the manual set if you do not have the documentation with your system.
