Insignia Medical Systems has signed a new contract with Avon Breast Screening (ABS). ABS, one of the biggest breast departments in the UK, first signed with Insignia in 2010, and have confirmed a further 5-year managed service contract with the PACS provider.

Based in the Bristol Breast Care Centre at Southmead Hospital, the Avon Breast Screening program invites more than 140,000 women from the area for breast screening.

“We selected Insignia because they provide excellent support with regular updates,” says Clare McLachlan, acting superintendent at ABS. “They are constantly improving their software to reflect new technologies such as tomosynthesis, and their software is easy to use facilitating film reading of mammograms.”

Certified to NBSS Level 2, InSight Mammo was developed to improve workflow for consultants and help speed up diagnosis. It also provides support for multiple modalities, including full field digital mammography, MRI, tomosynthesis, gamma imaging, and ultrasound, enabling the entire imaging record to be included in the advanced hanging protocols.
