The Breast Imaging Section offers comprehensive imaging and consultative services for diagnosis and follow-up of breast abnormalities. Asymptomatic normal risk women can be screened for breast cancer with standard 2-D mammography. 3-D mammography (tomosynthesis) is also offered. Those at high risk for breast cancer may also undergo screening breast MR. For diagnosis of breast abnormalities in symptomatic patients or patients having abnormal screening studies, the section offers tailored diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MR, sonographically guided, stereotactic and MR guided breast biopsy, as well as localization of occult lesions in preparation for surgical removal. Opportunities to participate in research studies in breast imaging, including protocols examining dedicated breast CT and tomosynthesis, are also available to eligible UCD patients.
