Fischer-MammoTest-Service-Version-2

Due to an announcement from Carestream in late 2018 of their discontinuance of service for the Fischer/Siemens MammoTest stereotactic table, we've been fielding requests from an increasing amount of Mammotest users and renters concerned about ongoing service and support. If your facility is among those likely to be affected, there are several thoughts that may be going through your head: "Can we find another service provider? Do we need to consider another used/refurbished table option (i.e. Hologic Multicare)? Can we justify the purchase of a new Hologic Affirm 3D Prone Biopsy Table for 300k+?"

We want to let you know that there are several ways Block Imaging can help alleviate the issue. Keep reading to see several capabilities you can take advantage of to continue offering breast biopsy procedures in your area.
