The BREAST team acknowledges the generous financial support of the following organisations:
The Cancer Institute NSW (CINSW) awarded an Equipment grant to fund the purchase of screen reading workstations with PACS, pathology slide scanner, headtracker, interactive tablet and laptops for the BREAST Mobile Imaging Lab. The grant also covers the transportation costs of mobile lab to bring the solution to remote areas, interstate, and overseas for education purposes and data collection.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation awarded the Infrastructure Grant to BREAST in 2012. The financial support of the NBCF enables BREAST to continue operations and further develop the program for the next 5 years.
The New Zealand Ministry of Health provided funding for the development and national implementation of BREAST across BreastScreen services in New Zealand (BreastScreen Aotearoa) over 3 years. The national roll-out and monitoring project will be completed in July 2015.
The Department of Health and Aging provided funding for the development and national implementation of BREAST across all Australian BreastScreen Services. The national roll-out project was completed in June 2013. The Department continues to provide financial aid to BREAST for the delivery of workshops at RANZCR meetings from 2013 to 2015.
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiology provided seed funding in 2010, thus enabling a pilot study to be conducted at the 8th General Breast Imaging Meeting of the RANZCR in Hobart 2011.
