The radiology and breast imaging department of Sunderland Royal Hospital has taken delivery of a Giotto full-field digital mammography unit from Southern Scientific Limited.
Manufactured by IMS Italy, a company solely dedicated to mammography, the Giotto is a two-in-one system.
With a 24 x 30cm amorphous Selenium2 detector providing extremely fast image acquisition times and high quality images, the system can be used as a conventional mammography unit for routine screening and symptomatic work.
