Asteral supports new breast scanner for London NHS partnership

Asteral : 29 July, 2010  (Application Story)
NHS organisations across London are coming together to boost the mammography facilities at The Whittington Hospital NHS trust provided by Asteral.
The new equipment will be a Hologic Selenia FFDM from MIS, which will improve image quality and enable a more efficient workflow. The equipment will complement the existing mammography unit provided by Asteral which includes a prone table for symptomatic work with the new equipment operating as a dedicated screening unit. As well as providing the equipment and ongoing maintenance Asteral also refurbished the room that houses the new equipment.

General Manager for Access, Diagnostics Services and Planned Care, Jon Green, from The Whittington Hospital NHS Trust, said: 'This is great example of partnership working to bring real benefits for patients. We at The Whittington have come together with Islington PCT and the Central East London Breast Screening Service based at St Barts and the London NHS Trust to provide screening services to patients in a modern fixed location. Asteral were chosen to procure and the manage the new equipment because of the value, professionalism and extremely high standards they have consistently delivered as part of the major Managed Equipment Services arrangement we have with them.'

Asteral's Sean Williams commented: 'We were delighted to install this new equipment that brings additional capability to the hospital. As we are independent of equipment manufacturers we were able to give impartial advice on the best solution available and we are confident that we will be able to deliver the same high standards maintaining this technology as we do with the rest of Whittington's medical equipment.'
