Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Breast Screening Service has acquired five Philips MicroDose L30 full field digital mammography systems to replace analogue mammography equipment and x-ray film.
One system was purchased from Sectra and the remaining four from Philips Healthcare following its acquisition of the Sectra mammography business.
Deputy breast services manager Babs Arnold said: “As our vans operate on generators, we were aware that the detector is less sensitive to temperature than other detectors. The generators are switched off at night so the detector must be capable of withstanding wide variations in temperature.”
