Diagnostic Tests

Diagnostic Tests

We use a number of screening and diagnostic tests to properly diagnose breast cancer.

The Breast Health Center of Excellence at Memorial uses the latest in medical technology to diagnose breast cancer.

​3D Mammography

30-40% more invasive cancers are detected with 3D mammography.

​Computer-Aided Detection (CAD)

The Hologic R2 Checker digitizes and analyzes mammograms to help radiologists better see suspicious areas.

​3T MRI

The area's only 3T MRI finds suspicious areas that mammography and sonography may not detect.

​Ultrasound

Used along with screening mammogram to detect areas of concern.

​Stereotactic Biopsy

Stereotactic biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses mammography to find and remove abnormal tissue from the breast. ​

Mammotome-Guided Biopsy

Using ultrasound to identify suspicious areas, mammotome-guided biopsy allows the surgeon or radiologist to collect samples through a very small incision.

​Surgical Biopsy

When larger tissue samples are needed, a surgical biopsy is performed. It is a little more invasive, and it may require a 1-2 inch incision.
