A specialised breast cancer unit in the heart of Paris

With more than 700 beds and an active out-patient service, the Hôpital Européen Georges Pompidou (HEGP)

is one of the most renowned hospitals in Paris, France and is part of the city’s public hospital system, the Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP). Some years ago AP-HP designated HEGP as an expert center for breast cancer, as result of which the radiology department has since significantly developed its breast imaging capabilities and gained a high reputation in the field. We wanted to find out more about the breast cancer activities in HEGP, so we spoke to Dr Foucauld Chammings, head of the breast imaging unit.
