Our breast health services

We know how busy a woman's schedule can get, but women's health care is so important. That's why our Breast Diagnostic Center offers everything from second-opinion counseling to a full spectrum of screening, diagnostic and interventional services.

Those services include:

  • Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

  • MRI-guided breast biopsies
  • Needle aspirations
  • Needle localization
  • Pathology support
  • Screening and diagnostic mammography
  • Sentinel node injections
  • Stereotactic and ultrasound-guided core biopsies

Mammograms

A mammogram is a very effective screening tool for early breast cancer detection. During this noninvasive procedure, breasts are compressed between two firm surfaces to spread out the breast tissue. Then, an X-ray of the breast tissue is taken so that a doctor can examine the images and look for signs of breast cancer.

We also offer 3D mammography services.

Breast cancer treatment

If breast cancer is detected, we are with you every step of the way. The doctors and specialists in our oncology program offer comprehensive cancer care and support services.

Additionally, our oncology program is accredited as a Comprehensive Community Cancer Program by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer. This recognition reflects our commitment to providing comprehensive and high-quality cancer care to our patients.

Breast exam recommendations

There are different kinds of breast exams and different guidelines around when to receive each type. The American Cancer Society recommends:

  • All women should receive a clinical breast exam by their healthcare providers each year.
  • All women should perform a breast self-exam each month.
  • Women 40 years old and older should receive an annual mammogram.
