Breast Cancer Diagnosis
The Breast Cancer Program provides comprehensive care for women with breast disease — diagnosis, surgery, radiation treatment, drug and hormone therapies, reconstruction and ongoing support. Our physicians and staff work together to make sure all treatment and services you receive are completely coordinated.
Breast cancer is diagnosed through a combination of physical examination, imaging procedures and laboratory examination of breast tissues. The Breast Cancer Program offers patients the most advanced imaging technologies and diagnostic capabilities available.
Mammography, ultrasound and other imaging technologies are key to the early detection and accurate diagnosis of breast abnormalities. Our highly experienced radiologists and radiologic technologists provide the full range of breast imaging procedures for breast cancer screening and treatment planning.
Laboratory analysis of breast tissue samples is required at many stages of the diagnosis and treatment process. The pathologists in the Breast Cancer Program devote their practice to evaluating breast abnormalities. They provide comprehensive breast pathology services that guide breast cancer surgery and help physicians plan the most effective post-surgical care.
