Pictured with a Selenia system on board the mobile van are: Medical Imaging Systems regional sales manager Mark O’Brien, superintendent radiographer for breast imaging Caroline Dobson, and MIS senior specialist mammography engineer Colin Ramsden.
The Cobalt Unit Appeal Fund has purchased a brand new mobile digital mammography unit, the first of its kind in the country, at a cost of £325,000 to aid the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
The mobile unit will operate around the county at several sites for Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The unit, a Hologic Selenia full field digital mammography system from MIS Limited will give instant and high quality images that will help to speed up service and cut waiting time. The images will then be stored on PACS and be made easily available to doctors across Gloucestershire.
A full report will be published on page 10 of the February 2009 issue of RAD Magazine.
