If you're considering adding a prone stereotactic biopsy table to your department, you might be curious if you have enough space to accommodate one. While there is more than one way to effectively design a room, below are sample room drawings (click to enlarge) for the Hologic Multicare Platinum and Fischer/Siemens Mammotest Plus tables.

While Manufacturers suggest a minimum room space of 12’ by 12’, a slightly larger room can certainly have some advantages. The top figure includes a utility sink (which can be useful for both patients and practitioners) while the bottom figure includes an optional patient changing room as well. Both of these require a slightly larger total space, but offer an extra degree of comfort for those who will be using the room.
