With a UHL Senographe Essential digital mammography system are senior radiographer Gill Gibbard, Asteral engineer Heraklis Skannavis, Asteral Leicester office manager Marianne Phillips and senior radiographer Denise Benn.
University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust has undergone a major equipment upgrade as part of its Managed Equipment Services partnership with Asteral.
This upgrade will transform Leicester’s mammography services to state-of-the art digital imaging technology. Four mammography suites located in the trust’s hospitals will be upgraded as well as three mobile scanners and their trailers.
The move comes just over two years after the scheme went live. The contract is the largest stand alone MES contract in Europe, and the latest development adds over £700,000 of additional equipment value to the scheme.
Asteral, which manages 176 assets on behalf of UHL has replaced 81 of them since going live.
