BMI Bath Clinic has upgraded its breast care service with the addition of a full field direct digital mammography system, the Mammomat Inspiration from Siemens Healthcare, and expects that moving from conventional analogue to digital imaging will enable it to offer faster, more comfortable breast examinations with improved image quality.
The Inspiration is said to combine ease-of-use with patient comfort to ensure that examinations are straightforward both for patient and clinician. Isocentric rotation of the detector makes for smoother positioning, while one-click-to-image functionality helps to simplify patient set-up and the image reading process. Digital images can be viewed immediately.
Reviewing the mammograms should also be simpler with the addition of a syngo MammoReport workstation that can load up to eight images in one second. The software has an intuitive user interface; at the click of a button the interface can switch between screening and diagnostics data.
