Spa-like Environment

We have designed this center for women like you to take time from your busy day to rejuvenate and relieve stress before, during and after exams by offering a spa-like setting, explaining each step in the process and performing the exam as quickly and gently as possible.

Digital Mammography

Our Hologic Selenia full-field digital mammography unit provides superior imaging and enhanced operating efficiency, and maximizes patient comfort. The power of digital imaging creates new possibilities for technologies that could enable us to see cancers earlier than ever before. Our digital mammography unit is the gold standard series in screen-film mammography.

Stereotactic Breast Biopsy

The Lorad MultiCare Platinum prone breast biopsy table offers the latest advances in stereotactic technology, making it the ideal system for characterization of calcifications, masses and architectural distortion. The exclusive contoured table allows the patient to lie comfortably in either direction throughout the procedure and provides 360-degree access. Flexible positioning capability ensures easy direct access to lesions.

Bone Densitometry (Dexa)

The GE Lunar Prodigy Primo densitometer provides our physicians with state-of-the-art diagnoses and precise information that can help identify patients at risk for fractures due to osteoporosis. The GE Lunar Prodigy Primo offers the breakthrough precision and accuracy of direct digital technology.

Ultrasound

Our 2D MINDRAY M5 diagnostic ultrasound system provides extraordinary performance to suit a broad range of clinical needs. The M5 offers brilliant color imaging and excellent 2D performance to generate higher-quality images.

Breast MRI

Advanced breast imaging technology is also available in the Hanford Medical Pavilion, in the Lab and Imaging Center on the First Floor. Breast MRI is critical for detecting breast cancer and other breast abnormalities. It doesn't replace mammography or ultrasound but supplements it.

Breast Cancer Team and Resources

For patients diagnosed with breast cancer, a team of caring breast specialists is available to help patients understand their treatment options. Specialists include surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, dietitians, physical therapists and social workers.

Prosthetic Services

The Breast Care Center also offers a store for patients who have had mastectomies or lumpectomies. One day a week, the store is open for prostheses and bra fittings as well as post-surgical camisole and swimsuit fittings. Breast prosthesis, also called a breast form, can help to balance a woman's appearance, protect surgical scars and balance weight on the shoulders.
