King George Hospital, Goodmayes, Essex, has installed a Hologic Selenia full field digital mammography system with a stereo biopsy attachment to replace an aging analogue mammography system.
The hospital now offers state-of-the-art digital breast imaging with the digital stereo biopsy option.
The Hologic Selenia FFDM supplied by MIS Healthcare uses a direct conversion digital detector, which eliminates the need to convert x-rays to light. The result is an exceptionally sharp digital image and better contrast with greater consistency. A large 24 x 29cm field of view and digital detector allows imaging in a wider range of patients without additional exposures.
