Our Team

Our radiologists are board certified with advanced training in breast imaging and are available for consultations. The nurse manager provides education and support as needed.  Our technologists are certified in mammography and patient focused in their approach.

 

Digital Mammography

Our HOLOGIC Digital Mammography units are low dose and have high resolution work stations with computer-aided detection (CAD). CAD analyzes mammographic images for suspicious areas and is designed to increase the accuracy of interpretation. 

Screening Mammogram
This test screens for breast cancer in asymptomatic women. It usually involves two X-rays of each breast.

Diagnostic Mammogram
This is test for patients with lumps, pain, nipple thickening or discharge, or a change in breast size or shape.

 

Breast Ultrasound

A breast ultrasound uses sound waves, not radiation, to assess the breast. It is commonly performed to determine if an abnormality detected by mammography or a palpable lump is fluid-filled (cyst) or a solid mass.

 

Breast Biopsy

A biopsy is a procedure to remove samples of breast tissue for examination by a pathologist under a microscope.

  • Stereotactic biopsy utilizes small X-rays to help guide the removal of calcifications.
  • Ultrasound-guided biopsy uses sound waves to guide the needle placement for the biopsy of a breast mass.
  • Ductography is a special injection of X-ray dye into a breast to evaluate the duct.
  • Wire localization for excisional biopsy is a technique that is used to mark the location of a breast abnormality for the surgeon prior to excision. The surgeon uses the wire as a guide to the tissue that needs to be removed.
