Barnsley goes digital to meet age extension

At Barnsley Hospital with Fujfilm’s Amulet are superintendent radiographer Judy Clark, trust radiology services manager Dave Houghton,  assistant practitioner Lisa  Brammah, trainee assistant practitioner Mary Sawyer, administration manager Aline Picken and mammographer Lynda Kent.

Fujifilm reports that its turnkey solution at Barnsley Hospital’s breast screening unit, involving refurbishment of all clinical areas including new and legacy systems and an ultrasound room, caused minimal disruption to the service.

The unit was officially re-opened by Barnsley MP Dan Jarvis after the refurbishment and conversion to a digital imaging unit, where two Fujifilm Amulet 24×30 digital machines have been installed.

Radiology services manager Dave Houghton said: “The digital imaging equipment will bring many benefits, the main one being the ability for the hospital to increase the number of women coming through breast screening, therefore ensuring we can see women in the extended age range of the screening programme.”
