Hornsby Hospital adopts new machine for breast-conserving surgeries

The new equipment allows for reduced procedure times and improved workflow.

Australia’s Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital has announced the adoption of a new machine for breast cancer patients who will undergo surgical procedures.

The newly acquired Hologic Trident Breast Specimen Imaging machine will be used in the hospital’s operating theatres to perform procedures such as breast-conserving surgeries or stereotactic breast biopsies. 

According to the hospital’s Clinical Director of Surgery and Anaesthesia, Pip Middleton, the equipment reduces time for patients under anaesthesia and provides real-time confirmation of the cancer’s removal.

“The machine supports point of care testing with instant verification of results, resulting in reduced procedure time and improved workflow,” Middleton said.
