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?
