Specialities: Breast Imaging
Across the Heart of England Radiology site we have two dedicated Mammography suites where we have the latest Digital Mammography equipment. At Solihull the Mammography room is situated close by the Outpatient Clinic whilst at Good Hope the Breast Imaging suite is located within the Treatment Centre.
The GE Senographe DS is the best of GE’s technology for all clinical needs from routine Family History screening to One Stop Breast clinics for symptomatic patients. It has the Revolution CSI detector for superb image quality at low dose radiation. It has a patient friendly design and for the Radiographers is very user friendly also having wheelchair friendly access.
There are five dedicated Breast Radiologists who work within the Multidisciplinary Team for all breast problems. There is a specialist team of Mammographers at each site each having gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Mammography. Recently two of the Team have been awarded training posts to become Advanced Practitioners who will be able to report mammograms independently and also carry out breast ultrasound.
At Heart of England we take pride in our specialised Breast Imaging team with an efficient and patient friendly service. We work closely with other modalities to give knowledge and skills for excellent clinical practice and patient care.
