Queen Mary’s adds tomosynthesis and vacuum-assisted biopsy with opening of new rooms

Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup has officially opened its new digital radiography and mammography rooms in Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust’s imaging department. For the busy symptomatic breast unit, the clinical team installed a Hologic 3Dimensions mammography system with 3D capability and biopsy functionality.

Consultant radiologist Dr Jane Goligher said: “We wanted to work with proven technology and high image quality. With a Hologic system already on site, we were happy to opt for it again.”

Radiology operational lead Bradley Smith added: “With the opening of a new mammography room, it was important for us to have the right equipment for our busy service. Not only have we added tomosynthesis to the unit, we have also introduced vacuum-assisted biopsy with the Hologic Brevera breast biopsy system. The whole mammography installation was very smooth, with excellent support from the Hologic engineer team. It is an exciting time for the unit.”
