Early detection is key to successfully treating the majority of breast health issues. That’s why we offer state-of-the-art screening and scanning right in the comfort of our office. Our caring team of experienced technicians utilizes leading-edge technology to deliver detailed scans and imaging, which are then read by our board-certified radiologists at Mount Sinai South Nassau. This combination of technology and expertise creates a higher-degree of certainty in diagnosing and evaluating abnormalities, which reduces the need for repeat visits and call backs.
The American Cancer Society, American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, and the American College of Radiology all recommend annual breast cancer screenings for women ages 40 and older, as well as early screenings for younger women with a family history of cancer. To best meet each patient’s unique needs, we offer both 2D and 3D mammography and Ultrasound options.
For high-risk patients and those with a personal or family history of cancer, it’s often recommended that they receive Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exams on the Selenia® Dimensions® Mammography system. This state-of-the-art technology takes complete three-dimensional scans of the breast and connective tissue, all from the comfort of our office.
Most often administered in combination with a 2D or 3D mammogram, we also offer Sofia 3D Breast Ultrasound imaging. This option allows closer examination of lumps or other abnormalities to determine likelihood of cancer. It is also commonly recommended for women with dense breast tissue, which could make follow up diagnosis more difficult under traditional methods alone.
