Comprehensive Mammography and Breast Cancer Screening for Your Peace of Mind

Breast cancer screening can be a stressful experience. But it doesn’t have to be. Our friendly and caring team of experts is here to make getting a mammogram or other breast imaging procedure as comfortable as possible. With personalized diagnostic examinations tailored to your unique risk factors, we strive to deliver the most accurate results with compassion.

Screening Mammography

Screening mammography is essential in the early detection of breast cancer, as it increases the chances of successful treatment and survival. We recommend regular mammograms for women according to age and risk factors. These non-invasive examinations can detect potential issues even when you have no symptoms.

Diagnostic Mammography

Our center employs the latest technology in full-field digital mammography 2-D or synthetic 2-D and tomosynthesis (3-D mammography) for diagnostic mammography. This advanced approach allows our radiology technologists to obtain breast images from multiple angles, enhancing the accuracy of cancer detection and reducing the need for repeat scans.

Advanced Screening Technologies

We are committed to using the latest advancements in breast cancer screening to provide the most accurate results. We are the only cancer center in South Florida offering contrast-enhanced mammograms, which use the same equipment as traditional mammograms but include upgraded software and intravenous iodine contrast to enhance the images.

This cutting-edge technology is particularly beneficial for women at intermediate risk of developing breast cancer or those who cannot undergo breast MRI due to severe claustrophobia, incompatible implantable devices, or gadolinium allergies.

Expertise in Dense Breast Tissue and High-Risk Cases

Our dedicated breast radiologists have extensive experience detecting abnormalities in dense breast tissue and high-risk cases. If an abnormality is detected or the breast tissue is particularly dense, our team may order additional testing, such as high-resolution ultrasound or breast MRI, to ensure the most accurate diagnosis possible.

Sophisticated Breast Imaging Techniques (Breast MRI)

Many physicians prefer a breast MRI to a mammogram, especially for patients with a 20-25% or higher lifetime risk for breast cancer. A breast MRI captures multiple images of your breast, providing a comprehensive view of the tissue. It may be used with a mammogram as a breast cancer screening tool for those at high risk or with a strong family history of breast cancer.

Breast biopsies can help determine the nature of your specific growth and the best course of action for your health. Depending on your circumstances, biopsies may be performed using image-guided localization procedures, cyst aspiration, or surgical methods.

Breast Oncology Through Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center

As part of UHealth, our patients have access to world-class breast cancer care. Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, an NCI-designated cancer center, is recognized for its outstanding research, patient care, and community outreach.

In the event of a cancer diagnosis, your care team will work together to analyze your specific case and determine the most effective treatment plan. We will conduct various tests on your biopsy sample to identify the exact type of cancer and your treatment options, such as:

  • Estrogen and progesterone receptor tests
  • Human epidermal growth factor type 2 (HER2/neu) receptor tests
  • Oncotype DX and MammaPrint
