Quality Breast Cancer Diagnosis & Treatment, Close to Home
3-D mammography (also known as breast tomosynthesis). For this, the breast is compressed once and a machine takes many low-dose x-rays as it moves over the breast. A computer then puts the images together into a 3-dimensional picture. 3-D mammography is the most effective breast cancer screening tool today. Diagnostic mammograms are also available which is performed when women are having symptoms such as pain in the breast, a new lump, skin changes, or nipple discharge.
A breast ultrasound is used as a supplemental imaging tool, following a mammogram, to get additional information necessary for a complete diagnosis. Ultrasound can help a radiologist determine whether the abnormality on the mammogram is cystic or solid.
Breast Biopsy (Stereotactic or Ultrasound)
A breast biopsy is recommended when a suspicious finding is identified on a mammogram or breast ultrasound. A small needle is used to remove a few samples of the suspicious area in the breast. The tissue is then sent to the lab for further testing by the pathologist.
