Bedfordshire NHS Foundation Trust has recently replaced its fleet of eight breast screening and assessment systems with GE Healthcare’s Senographe Pristina
The team at the Luton and Dunstable Breast Unit is delighted with its new state-of-the-art technology from GE Healthcare.
Engineered BY women FOR women, the Senographe Pristina has transformed mammography with the creation of patient-focused system that improves patient experience and outcomes of breast cancer screening. The new systems are also designed with the users in mind, minimising repetitive movements and streamlining workflow to reduce the risk of repetitive strain injuries.
Graham Straughair, breast imaging manager, said: “Replacing the existing eight machines was daunting, however, the overall installation and training was a great success and well supported by GE. The new assessment machines introduced tomosynthesis into screening assessments for the first time in Luton and will soon be introducing contrast-enhanced mammography within symptomatic assessments.”
Anne-Marie Leach, superintendent radiographer, said: “Feedback from the staff reflects the good experience for both users and patients when using the equipment. Staff have been impressed with the ease of use when positioning women.”
