Breast Imaging

At Women’s Imaging our screening and diagnostic breast imaging services include Digital Mammography, Breast MRI and ultrasound, as well as biopsies, localizations and various surgical procedures.

• Digital Mammography

A low-dose x-ray that can detect cancer at an early stage ensuring treatment is more effective and survival more likely. It can detect 80-90% of breast cancers in women who are not exhibiting symptoms.

Research shows that digital mammography is more accurate for patients with dense breast tissue, those who are perimenopausal, or women under the age of 50. However, our radiologists believe that a digital study is better for all patients because they are able to manipulate the digital images, leading to superior interpretation and more accurate diagnosis.

• Breast MRI

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the breast is the ultimate supplementary screening and staging tool. It is an ideal option involving no radiation for women with dense breast tissue and a family or personal history of breast cancer.

Breast MRI can also be used to screen for cancer in women who have scar tissue and those with breast implants to determine the integrity of the implants. It is used in conjunction with mammography and ultrasound and is effective in detecting and staging breast cancer cases not detected through other means.

• Breast Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to visualize the breast and is used to evaluate abnormalities, such as cysts and solid masses, which are found during a mammogram or physical exam. It is a suitable option for young women with dense breast tissue after a lump has been detected that is difficult to see on a mammogram. In addition to mammography, breast ultrasound is also used as a screening mechanism for patients who are asymptomatic but have dense breast tissue.
