BreastScreen Victoria offers a free mammographic screening service to asymptomatic women in the target group of 50-69 years of age under the national population based screening program BreastScreen Australia.
The women in the region will be offered mammography screening with the new equipment that is being installed in four of BreastScreen Victoria’s sites by September 2010.
Since 2006, BreastScreen Victoria has used Sectra BreastImaging PACS for managing and archiving all digital breast images. BreastScreen Victoria encompasses a statewide network of eight screening and assessment centres, 32 fixed screening sites and 28 mobile screening locations. BreastScreen Victoria will conduct more than 200,000 screening mammograms in the coming year.
"Sectra is the leading provider of breast imaging PACS in Australia and we are also experiencing growing demand for Sectra MicroDose," says Scott Johnston Managing Director Sectra Australia and New Zealand.
