Your digital mammogram, the gold standard for detecting breast cancer, is performed using state-of-the-art digital mammography equipment
. For your comfort, we use the soft touch MammoPad®.
One of our female technologists, registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists in both mammography and radiography, will perform your mammogram. Radiologists who are board certified with the American College of Radiology interpret your results. The iCAD, a computer program that aides in the detection of breast abnormalities, also reviews your images.
If you are still having periods, you should have a mammogram 7 to 14 days after you start your period. If your last mammogram was done elsewhere, please make arrangements to have that study sent to us, or bring it with you.Digital Diagnostic Mammography
A diagnostic mammogram usually involves special pictures of your breasts to examine a lump or something seen on a screening mammogram. The radiologist may review your study before you leave. Breast ultrasound may also be performed with a diagnostic mammogram.
Our mammography services are accredited by the American College of Radiology and certified by the Food and Drug Administration.Breast Ultrasound
Performed while you are lying down, a breast ultrasound
evaluates lumps and breast lesions. A probe is moved over the area and sound waves help determine if the area is solid or fluid-filled.Breast MRI
A breast MRI
, a supplement to mammography and ultrasound, uses a magnetic field and radio waves to give a 3-D view of your breasts for further evaluation.Breast Biopsies
If you need a breast biopsy, we perform stereotactic and ultrasound-guided breast biopsies, as well as fine needle and cyst aspirations. Your biopsy is coordinated with your doctor, the radiologist and our breast health specialist to make sure you get the right biopsy for your situation.Ancillary and Rehabilitation Services
