Breast Imaging and Screening

Breast Imaging

Breast Imaging provides a responsive, diagnostic service, for women referred from the surgical breast clinic and the national breast screening programme.

Women attending surgical breast clinic have all imaging on the same day in the vast majority of cases. We offer ultrasound and x-ray guided core biopsy facilities, a prone table biopsy service and two types of vacuum assisted core biopsy to provide quality histology samples for diagnosis.

The service is provided by a team of consultant radiologists, advanced practitioners and radiographers. The breast imaging team works very closely with the surgical breast clinic, pathology, and the breast care nursing team, to provide an expert multi-disciplinary approach.

Clinic days

Symptomatic clinics take place on each day of the week with follow-up imaging taking place at numerous times during the week.
