Breast Team

Advanced Diagnosis... better care.


We provide a dedicated team approach as the area’s only multidisciplinary Breast Health Center that includes the latest diagnostic tools, including 3D mammography.

We also manage an Interdisciplinary Breast Research Program that fosters close interaction with basic researchers to develop cutting edge clinical research by regularly bringing our basic researchers and clinicians together to discuss current translational research on breast cancer.

We offer state-of-the art clinical trials, with new treatments not available anywhere else in the region.

We offer incomparable supportive services like our full-service Image Boutique and Breast Cancer Support Group.

The Breast Health Center offers the latest tools to help diagnose breast cancer. 

  • 3D Mammography - technology that improves cancer detection and reduces false-positive results
  • Genetic counseling and testing for inherited conditions that increase a patient’s risk for breast cancer (such as BRCA1 and BRCA2)
  • A weekly breast health clinic for women who’ve had suspicious breast screening test results
