Welcome to Vertec SA

Vertec SA is working together with Hologic to bring the best in breast care to South Africa.

Hologic created the world’s leading full field digital mammography system, the Dimensions. Now the market leader in South Africa, Dimensions was the first in the world to offer breast tomosynthesis. To complement their mammography imaging, Hologic have designed the world’s most advanced biopsy systems, the Affirm stereo biopsy accessory with tomosynthesis guided breast biopsy and the stand alone Affirm prone biopsy table.

The range is complemented by the Brevera breast biopsy and excision system with real time specimen collection and imaging for stereotactic 2D & 3D biopsy and ATEC vacuum assisted biopsy systems for x-ray, MRI or ultrasound guidance. Also available are innovative Specimen Radiography systems. The Trident HD is complemented with the full Faxitron product range, from the coreVision through to the PathVision, allowing fast and easy diagnosis of biopsy samples during the biopsy procedure in Radiology, in the operating room or in Pathology, to make sure the lesion is completely removed.

To meet the challenges of osteoporosis and other skeletal health issues, Hologic, the inventors of DXA, also offer the innovative Horizon scanner - probably the best in its class worldwide - and the Fluoroscan FD mini C-arm for surgical intervention of the hand and foot.
