Sectra has announced that its Mammography Stand is now being evaluated at the Coventry and Warwick Hospital in Coventry, U.K. by the Breast Screening Service, one of the U.K.'s national training centers for breast imaging.
   
After the evaluation, which is currently underway and will last a period of six months, the stand will likely be put to use as part of the U.K. Breast Screening Programme and its 90 breast screening units across the U.K. each that serve a population of 45,000 women, Sectra said.

The majority of screenings takes place in a mobile setting, and so Sectra have chosen to have the system evaluated in a mobile environment.
