Imaging

Early detection of breast cancer helps to ensure the best outcomes for treatment and survivorship. Therefore, for women who are age 40 and older, annual mammogram screenings are recommended*. Our center offers a wide variety of imaging services, including:

  • Digital 3D Mammography (Tomosynthesis) – This new technology provides a higher quality Image, with greater detail, than traditional digital mammography does. As a result, smaller abnormalities are often detected earlier. In addition, the recall rate for additional screening due to questionable results is greatly reduced.
  • Stereotactic Breast Biopsy – 2D digital images are captured from two different angles and analyzed by computer. This technique is able to locate a suspicious area in 3D with a high degree of precision and accuracy.
  • Breast Sonography – Ultrasound is used to distinguish a fluid-filled cyst from a dense mass such as a tumor – without the need for compression. It can also measure a breast tumor, which is extremely important when establishing a personalized treatment plan.
  • Bone Density Scan – This is used to measure bone loss due to osteoporosis. Though unrelated to breast care, the exam is often requested by women. We offer it as an extension of services.
  • Breast 3T MRI – This emerging technology helps to better diagnose those with questionable results from other tests. It is also more effective with dense breast tissue and is recommended for women deemed high risk based on criteria developed by the American College of Radiology.

The center includes relaxing spa-like lounges and waiting rooms as well as private dressing rooms (including some that are plus size) complete with comfy robes.
