Technical Reports

NCCPM conducts technical evaluations of new mammographic imaging systems on behalf of the NHSBSP. This has involved a great deal of activity as imaging manufacturers have introduced new versions of their digital mammography systems. The following table summarises the progress of these evaluations since 2009.
