Breast Imaging Services We Provide

Breast Imaging Services We Provide

Our team provides the full range of breast imaging services. A subspecialized breast radiologist reviews and interprets your imaging results so you receive precise, expert care. At the Lozick Women’s Center, we offer all our women’s imaging services in one convenient location.

Our services include:

3D mammograms

A technologist takes X-rays of your breast from multiple angles to produce a three-dimensional image. 3D mammography allows radiologists to see through dense breast tissue more clearly, leading to more accurate evaluations.

  • Screening mammograms: A screening mammogram is one of the most important tools for early detection of breast cancer. These mammograms check for signs of breast cancer in those who have no symptoms of the disease.
  • Diagnostic mammograms: A diagnostic mammogram is a more detailed evaluation for those with breast cancer symptoms. Your specialist may also order a diagnostic mammogram if you have any signs of abnormalities on your screening mammogram.

Breast MRI

MRIs are imaging tests that use magnets and radio waves to view inside the body. Breast MRIs are not replacements for mammograms. But they may be an additional screening tool for those with a high risk for breast cancer. We also may use breast MRIs for evaluation if you have breast cancer symptoms or already have a diagnosis.

Breast ultrasound

Ultrasounds are tests that use sound waves to view inside the body. Like MRIs, breast ultrasounds aren’t routine screening tools. But they can be useful for evaluating dense breast tissue or looking at certain breast changes. Ultrasounds may help differentiate between fluid-filled cysts, which are unlikely to be cancerous, and hard lumps, which require further testing.

Breast biopsy

In a breast biopsy, we collect a sample of breast tissue to evaluate in a lab. A biopsy shows us whether the breast tissue contains cancer cells. Our team uses advanced biopsy techniques, including:

  • Core needle biopsy: We remove a small tissue sample by placing a needle in the breast tissue. Our specialists use imaging techniques that use soundwaves (ultrasound-guided biopsy) or a magnet and radio waves (MR-guided biopsy) to locate where to take this tissue sample. Typically, we take a few small samples to compare and analyze whether disease is present.
  • Stereotactic breast biopsy: In the past, when doctors detected a lump, they had to do surgery just to check if it was cancer. Now, thanks to advanced technology, we can perform a small, minimally invasive procedure called a stereotactic breast biopsy. During this biopsy, we use mammograms to pinpoint suspicious masses in breast tissue. Then, we remove a small piece of breast tissue about the size of a pencil tip. This approach offers exceptional accuracy rates while avoiding unnecessary invasive surgery.

Additional Imaging Services We Provide

In addition to mammography and breast imaging, you also have access to:

  • Bone density screenings: A dual-energy X-ray absorption (DEXA) scan is a low-dose X-ray to evaluate bone health. It helps us identify osteopenia and osteoporosis or evaluate fracture risk. Most people assigned female at birth, age 65 and older should complete regular bone density screenings.
  • Pelvic ultrasounds: A pelvic ultrasound is an imaging test to look at your pelvic organs and structures, such as your uterus, cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes and vagina. Your provider may order a pelvic ultrasound to evaluate pelvic irregularities and conditions such as uterine fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease or postmenopausal bleeding.
