welcome

EUREF, the European Reference Organisation for Quality Assured Breast Screening and Diagnostic Services, is a pan European organisation, widely drawn from different Member States and is operated on a non-profit making basis.  At the present time the administrative office is located in Nijmegen where facilities and administrative staff are available. The goal of EUREF is to promote high quality mamma-care in Europe.

Current European experience is that breast services vary considerably in the quality of organisation, delivery and professional support. EUREF believes it is neither appropriate nor desirable for women in Europe to be subject to such haphazard standards of care when breast cancer is so prevalent and causes such concern.

EUREF commits itself to the development and dissemination of the European Guidelines, Certification of breast services and mammography equipment, Training and will provide support and advice on such issues upon request.

Updated version of European breast tomosynthesis QC protocol (version 1.03)

Changes compared to version 1.01:

  • The dose reference values have been changed to limiting values.
  • The limiting dose value for 20 mm PMMA thickness has changed from 1.0 mGy to 1.2 mGy. This has been done because feedback was received and was noted that the value of 1.0 mGy was difficult to achieve with sufficient image quality for DBT systems.
  • Some text has been added regarding the mode in which mages have to be made in some methods of measurement.
