Treatment at Our Breast Care Center
Early and accurate detection makes breast cancer one of the most treatable forms of cancer. Since many breast lumps are not cancerous, our specialists also provide treatment for non-malignant conditions. We offer a wide range of expert diagnostic and treatment services, including:
- Breast MRI
Detailed images offer valuable information about many breast conditions that cannot be obtained or detected in other imaging modalities.
- Diagnostic Digital Mammography
Low-dose X-rays are taken by certified technologists and interpreted by board-certified radiologists.
High-frequency sound waves and ultrasound images are used to diagnose cystic disease.
- Image-Guided Core Biopsy
This method of biopsy provides a focused tissue sampling while using a local anesthetic.
- Surgical Biopsy
This process removes a mass under local anesthesia if the lump can be felt. A needle-directed biopsy is performed for lumps that cannot be felt.
- Sentinel Node Biopsy
This biopsy method surgeons to pinpoint the spread of breast cancer and remove a limited number of lymph nodes.
