Diagnosis

Stereotactic Guided Breast Biopsy

This alternative to surgical biopsy uses an image-guided needle to quickly extract tissue that can be examined and evaluated under a microscope by a pathologist. 



Ultrasound Guided Breast Biopsy 

Another alternative to surgical biopsy using an ultrasound image-guided needle to quickly extract tissue that can be examined and evaluated under a microscope by a pathologist.

MRI Guided Breast Biopsy

An alternative to surgical biopsy using an MRI image-guided needle to quickly extract tissue that can be examined and evaluated under a microscope by a pathologist.

Mammography 

Mammograms are X-ray pictures of the breast that are effective for detecting breast cancer.  A mammogram allows the doctor to have a closer look at changes in breast tissue that cannot be felt during a breast exam.

Breast MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a safe and painless test that provides pictures of organs and structures inside the body. It produces these images by using a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy. MRI does not use X-rays.  

PET/CT

PET/CT scans are a type of nuclear medicine imaging.  A PET and a CT scan are performed at the same time with the same machine, providing a more comprehensive image than each could produce alone. A PET/CT scan is used often to image the heart, brain, liver or other organs. It is  one of the most effective ways to study cancer.
