Breast Center

Breast cancer affects one in eight women. It is the second most common cause of cancer related death
in women. Studies prove early detection is a vital component in the successful treatment of breast cancer.

The Providence Breast Center offers women a new technology for early detection of breast cancer called full field digital mammography. This new technology greatly enhances the ability to detect breast cancers at earlier stages, and in less time
than previous methods.

Digital mammography uses computers and specially designed digital detectors to provide electronic images of the breast. These high-
resolution images are available on the technologist's monitor in a matter of seconds, shortening time for your mammography visit.
It also reduces the need for retakes due to over or under exposure of film.

The Center has a state-of-the-art Stereotactic Breast Biopsy System. Quick, minimally-invasive biopsies help to enhance a patient's overall experience.

The Providence Breast Center provides:

  • Digital mammography
  • Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
  • Ultrasound Guided Breast Biopsy
  • High Resolution Ultrasound
  • Woman's Touch Mammopad at no additional charge
  • Dedicated radiologist reading room
  • Educational resources

Flexible appointment times, including Saturday mornings, available.To schedule a mammogram or for more information about the Providence Breast Center, please call 913-596-4994.
