Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has installed two Mammomat Inspiration full field digital mammography systems with stereotactic biopsy to expand digital imaging capabilities and improve services in line with the Cancer Reform Strategy. 


The Siemens Healthcare Inspirations will be used for symptomatic breast examinations and are expected to streamline workflow by offering guidewire insertion and biopsy on the same unit.


“We now have biopsy capabilities in all rooms, whereas previously this could only be done in one,” said superintendent radiographer Kim Baird.
