Types of Breast Imaging

Our full breast evaluation services include:

Screening Mammography

A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast that can find cancer before it can be felt by you or your doctor. Breast tomosynthesis is our standard of care.

Breast Ultrasound

Breast ultrasound uses sound waves to create pictures of the internal structure of the breast.

Breast MRI

A breast MRI creates highly detailed images of breast tissue. It is used with other imaging such as mammography and ultrasound to provide an overview of breast health.

Breast Biopsy
