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
