Is symptomatic mammography in-scope or out-of-scope for LSP pacs? Whilst we originally had a FSA mammo (5MP) workstation, i can't quite see how we are put mammography images into the system....or am I just being a little thick here?
You need to avoid at all costs having a CR system that has not has adequate clinical evaluation foisted upon you-remember the recent problems with Agfa. Unless you can raise the capital-about £240,000, plus the maintenance charges, about 10% per year of the capital cost, to buy and run a full field digital set,you may be better off sticking to film screen.It depends how much mammography you actually do. I am worried that this may put more pressure on small symptomatic only units to close and divert all the work to your local screening centre...?
