Breast Biopsy Appeal

Fundraising £350,000

£ 350,000 raised so far

We have been overwhelmed by your response to the Breast Biopsy Appeal and are delighted that we’ve reached the target in less than two years. Read full story here

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.

The Equipment


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
