Cambridge and Huntingdon BSU invests in Philips

With Cambridge and Huntingdon breast screening service superintendent radiographer Barbara Knighton (centre) are Philips mammography applications specialist Runya Mukanganwa and commercial manager women’s health Neil Emery.


Cambridge and Huntingdon breast screening service has replaced analogue mammography units with state-of-the-art digital mammography in the form of two Philips MicroDose L30 full field digital mammography systems installed on mobile trailers.


Superintendent radiographer Barbara Knighton said: “The design of the equipment and the workflow make the examination a very calm procedure and this transmits to the patient to provide a more pleasant experience.


 “With the installation, women with breast implants are now imaged on the mobile trailers.  This has increased the flexibility of the service as women with implants are now able to have screening locally.”
