Breast imaging services

Because breast cancer is most treatable when identified in its earliest stages, regular breast screening is a vital component of women's health care.

Our breast center offers advanced breast cancer screening services to aid in early detection for women on Florida's Treasure Coast.

Our breast imaging services include:

  • Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • 3D mammography
  • 2D mammography


We offer 3D and 2D mammography systems, which are both designed to meet a broad spectrum of clinical needs — from screening and diagnosis to pre- and postoperative care. A 3D mammogram takes multiple images of the breast from different angles. A computer then combines the images to create a three-dimensional picture of the breast, giving doctors a clearer view of the breast tissue, at the same radiation dose as a 2D mammogram. This 3D system features the newest advances in technology designed to optimize and enhance image quality. A 2D mammogram takes two pictures of each breast — one from the side and one from above.

Our mammography systems offer advancements in breast imaging, including patient comfort and giving the radiologist enhanced reading capability for better visualization across the entire breast. They’re also designed to image the breasts in both female and male patients.

Benefits of mammograms

Mammography at our hospital offers the following patient benefits:

  • Average exam time for mammograms can be reduced up to 50 percent compared to traditional film-based mammograms
  • Compression speed of the paddle slows when coming into contact with the breast, providing enhanced patient comfort
  • Ergonomic compression paddle shapes to the breast, optimizing the tissue presented for imaging
  • Narrow tube design allows for easy and relaxed positioning during the exam
  • Easy wheelchair access to the system
  • Computer-aided detection (CAD) helps the physician identify suspicious areas and assists in earlier detection of breast cancer
  • Better visibility of the breast, particularly near the skin line, the chest wall and in women with dense breast tissue
  • Digital capability allows for image quality checks within seconds after exposure, giving physicians and technologists the ability to confirm image quality before the patient leaves the exam room
  • Advanced digital capabilities allow for breast images to be reviewed electronically for improved result turnaround times
  • Electronic archiving of patient images means easier retrieval and transmission of patient information to healthcare providers
