Breast imaging and diagnostics we offer

We are proud to be able to provide you with a range of testing services, including:

3D mammography

This imaging method combines multiple X-rays to create three-dimensional pictures of the breast. Typically ordered for patients with no symptoms, 3D mammograms can detect more cancers than traditional mammograms and are used to investigate issues such as breast pain and masses.

Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

This imaging exam uses radiowaves and magnets, as opposed to radiation, to produce detailed images of the inside of the breast. Breast MRIs examine the breast from numerous angles, providing extensive coverage of potential abnormalities that cannot be seen using other tests.

Cyst aspiration

During this procedure, fluid is drained from a breast cyst with a needle. Aspirating the fluid can alleviate symptoms and discomfort. Since it can be analyzed right away, the procedure can prove to be extremely helpful in early cancer detection.

Stereotactic breast biopsy

This procedure involves removing tissue samples via mammography to be analyzed under a microscope. After the breast is placed between two plates, a sample is removed from the determined location. Stereotactic biopsies are typically preferred to surgical biopsies.

Ultrasound

This noninvasive test employs sound waves to create real-time pictures of internal structures. Breast ultrasounds diagnose lumps and abnormalities found during mammograms, MRIs or physical examinations. They can also showcase certain types of breast lesions and abnormalities that prove too challenging to determine from a mammogram.

Ultrasound core needle biopsy

Using ultrasound technology, core needle biopsies are ordered when cancer has been found on another test. Our radiologists use an ultrasound to locate the problem area, then use a small device to remove breast tissue for examination.

Bone density screenings

These exams help us diagnose osteoporosis by measuring calcium and bone mineral levels via X-rays. With a breast cancer diagnosis, bone density screenings are essential to make sure your bones remain strong throughout treatment. They also help us ensure treatment-related osteoporosis does not develop.

Breast cancer surgery

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, our hospital is here to provide you with the oncology services you need. Our surgical specialists are able to provide surgeries — including minimally invasive procedures when possible — to remove cancerous tissues, provide postoperative breast reconstruction and eliminate cancerous spread to the lymph nodes. Breast cancer surgical options include a lumpectomy, where only the cancerous part of the breast is removed, or a mastectomy, which removes the entire breast.
