Milton Keynes sees benefits from addition of breast imaging to general PACS

Mammographer Maxine Emmerson, PACS manager/imaging IT systems lead Andrew Scott, Insignia Medical Systems PACS application specialist Andrew Delaney, deputy superintendent mammographer Sandra Knox and breast imaging services manager Debbie Noble with consultant radiologists Dr Sheeba Taneja and Dr Pru Evans.

Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has migrated more than 87,000 mammography studies to its new PACS system.  An Insignia Breast PACS has been unified with the trust’s current Insignia PACS.

Breast imaging services manager Debbie Noble explained: “The migration of breast imaging into the main hospital PACS system has improved efficiencies within imaging and beyond, supported by the ability to view multimodality images within the same system.  Clinical efficiencies have become particularly evident with imaging sharing capabilities and the preparation of MDT meetings, both of which previously involved manual intervention in pushing images between systems.”
