Spire Murrayfield Hospital scans first patients with digital mammography

April 2011

The Siemens 'Mammomat Inspiration' is the latest addition to a comprehensive suit of diagnostic imaging modalities at Murrayfield Hospital. This state of the art equipment marks a move from analogue to digital and ensures that the hospital stays at the forefront of cutting edge technology.

The 'Mammomat Inspiration' provides the most comfortable mammography experience available while capturing high quality clinical images and maintaining low patient radiation doses. The system is fully integrated into the hospital ‘Picture Archiving and Communication System’ which ensures a faster and more efficient reading of clinical  images.

Patients wanting the highest quality images from their mammograms can get them at Spire Murrayfield Hospital from April 7th.

Avril Bews, Health Assessment Manager said, "We are delighted, that as well as this new service being available to symptomatic patients, it is also available to ladies over the age of 40  for  screening mammograms."
