Scottish Breast Screening Programme employs mobiles to improve rural access

Philips UK and Ireland says its partnership with NHS National Services Scotland to deliver the Scottish Breast Screening Programme (SBSP) has become a leading model for breast screening. Through the partnership, as many as 270,000 women in Scotland between the ages of 50 and 70 are invited for screening each year, leading to the prevention of approximately 130 deaths per year.

Philips Vue PACS V12.2 has been installed across the network to provide national access to breast imaging via a global worklist, alongside symptomatic services and the national PACS solution. With Philips’ support, NHS National Services Scotland and the SBSP have created an imaging database that has led to improved screening analysis and workflow efficiencies.
