Hologic aids research and training at King’s

The breast radiology department at King’s College Hospital, London, has become an internationally recognised centre for the investigation and management of breast disease and has developed a comprehensive range of training programmes.  It was also the first in the UK to install a Hologic Trident specimen radiography system.

Director of SE London Breast Screening and National Training Centre Dr Michael Michell said: “A dedicated high quality specimen radiography system offers great advantages to patients and workflow in a busy breast radiology department.  During assessment and biopsy sessions, use of the system means that high quality images of core samples are rapidly available and the presence of very small areas of micro-calcification in the specimens can be confidently confirmed without taking up time on a mammography machine and disrupting clinics.”
