With increasing demands on breast imaging departments and ever precious theatre space, coupled with improving imaging techniques enabling detection of smaller and more subtle foci of breast disease, the need for effective pre-operative localisation has never been greater. As a result, there has been a rush of innovative localisation technology over the last few years, and in this talk we will discuss the dominant ones that have surfaced in the UK market.
Having completed medical school at St Bartholomew’s and Royal London in 2001, I stayed in London for general medical and then radiology training, the latter at University College Hospital. I followed this with a year long breast imaging fellowship at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, which I completed in 2011. Following my first Consultant role at West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds, I moved back to my home county of Norfolk where I remain today with my family and two dogs.
