Abercrombie Radiology established the Breast Center in 1986 amid the growing concern for the early detection and prevention of breast cancer. That same year, the Center was accredited by the American College of Radiology — an accreditation which covers all areas of operation, including the mammographic equipment, the technologist and the radiologists. Truly, from the first simple breast xray performed here over 20 years ago to the technologically superior mammograms we offer today, Abercrombie Radiological Consultants has continually proven its dedication to the promotion of women's health.
Abercrombie Radiology now has 3D mammography.
Our diagnostic exam includes necessary mammogram views with real-time review/interpretation by one of our board certified radiologists. Immediately following the exam, we discuss the results with the patient and deliver the report to her physician.
Mammographers at the Breast Center utilize Computer Assisted Detection (CAD) to aid in digital mammography, which is highly rated for consistency in image uniformity by the American College of Radiology. For ultrasound studies, we offer high resolution breast ultrasound.
In some instances, we may perform screening breast ultrasound exams in conjunction with a mammogram. This non-invasive procedure is extremely helpful in defining areas of the breast which may be difficult to visualize with mammography alone.
Screening Breast MRI is useful in high risk patients.
Diagnostic Breast MRI can aid the radiologist in evaluating indeterminate mammography or ultrasound findings, can help with surgical planning in newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, and can evaluate response to chemoradiation therapy in patients prior to surgery.
