Private breast screening is now more readily available to the women of Cambridgeshire
Private breast screening is now more readily available to those not currently eligible for the NHS screening programme, in conjunction with BreastHealth UK (www.BreastHealthUK.com) at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital. This is the first clinic of its kind to include a digital infrared (DIB) scanner, offered when deemed clinically appropriate by the consultant.
Following an initial breast health analysis, patients are offered a personalised breast screening programme that may include mammography, clinical breast examination and digital infrared imaging by Sentinel BreastScan.
Sentinel BreastScan has been shown to have a high sensitivity at detecting early breast cancer in two North American trials. It has FDA approval for use in the US as an “adjunctive” or additional breast screening tool and gained a CE mark (approval for use in Europe) in early 2007.
