£ 165000 raised so far
The Breast Biopsy Appeal is raising money to fully equip a dedicated biopsy suite with life saving 3D mammography technology.
Targeted biopsies will be carried out quicker with pinpoint accuracy, significantly reducing the time patients need to wait from diagnosis to treatment. In addition, this cutting edge equipment will help in diagnosing very small cancers at an early stage, therefore improving prognosis.
Enables clinicians to conduct fast, efficient exams and accelerate reading time so as to improve patient waiting times
Improves the patient experience with a curved compression surface that mirrors the shape of the breast for a more even compression
Greater accuracy than conventional 2D mammograms, detecting 20-65% more invasive breast cancers
Improved visibility of fine details for greater diagnostic confidence
