QEII embraces interventional work with breast biopsy systems

With the Hologic 3D mammography system at the QEII Hospital are Hologic breast health sales specialist John McMahon, radiology nurse Alison Cooper, clinical lead radiographer Jill Rogers, lead mammographer Vicki Sanderson and consultant radiologist Dr Kausa Raza.

Welwyn Garden City’s new QE11 Hospital has been built with inspiration from the garden city concept of Sir Ebenezer Howard from the 1920s, while featuring many 21st century concepts of sustainability.

The breast imaging unit comprises two mammography rooms; one has a Hologic Selenia Dimensions 3D mammography system with an Affirm tomosynthesis breast biopsy guidance system and the other a Hologic 2D mammography system, plus a Hologic MultiCare stereotactic breast biopsy system that was transferred from the old Vicki Adkins Breast Unit.

Lead mammographer Vickie Sanderson was delighted that they were able to afford at least one new 3D unit.  She said: “Without hesitation we chose the Hologic 3D mammography system.  We had seen it at the 2014 Symposium Mammographicum and our positive experiences with the previous Hologic equipment pointed us towards the company and this system.

“We were particularly keen to include interventional work with the Hologic Affirm breast biopsy guidance system and Eviva breast biopsy system.”
