Breast elastography arrives at Royal Bolton

Consultant radiologist Dr Anthony Maxwell, breast screening programme manager Claire Mercer and advanced practitioner, ultrasound Jennifer Brown welcome one of two Acuson S2000s from Siemens Healthcare to Royal Bolton Hospital.


The Royal Bolton Hospital, part of Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, has installed two Acuson S2000 diagnostic ultrasound systems from Siemens Healthcare and is now ready to move forward with breast elastography.  The systems are being used for general breast imaging, asymptomatic screening assessment and symptomatic breast clinics.


“We are impressed with the image quality and are looking forward to exploring the full functionality of Siemens’ strain imaging technology, which we expect will prove very useful in the diagnosis of breast lesions,” said consultant radiologist and director of breast screening Dr Anthony Maxwell.
