Mammography Compression Force Test Set

The set to measure compression force of mammography systems was compiled to meet all requirements of DIN 6868-152 and 6868-7 as well as IEC 61223-3-2 and 61223-2-10.

The compression force of mammography systems is regularly to be measured in both automatic and manual mode to assure accuracy and reliability.

Appropriate compression of the breast is one of the essential parameters to achieve an ideal imaging quality in mammography.

The test set consists of a foam cube featuring pre-defined size and density, electronic scales to fit the bucky, and a tape measure.

The recommended compression force per DIN standard can be checked as well as the maximum force which is not to be exceeded.

The top plate of the scales is made of stainless steel and can be taken off for cleaning or sanitisation purposes.
