Breast Imaging and Diagnostics

Offering innovation in breast cancer detection

Scientists, researchers and clinicians world-wide are in continuous pursuit of advancements that can be used to fight breast cancer. So are we. That's why we were the first in Wisconsin to offer FDA-approved 3D mammography at ProHealth Care. While we use scientific protocols and progressive technologies to detect cancer, we don't lose touch with the importance of human understanding when it comes to helping our patients. We understand the unsettling feeling one can experience when waiting for mammogram results. That's why we deliver immediate results for daytime mammogram appointments. One of our radiologists will read your mammogram and you will leave knowing your results. Screenings conducted in the evening will have results provided within 24 hours. 

3D mammography/Tomosynthesis

Breast tomosynthesis is an advanced form of mammography, a specific type of breast imaging that uses low-dose x-rays to detect cancer early – before women experience symptoms – when it is most treatable. Also known as 3D breast mammography, doctors are able to see far more detail within breast tissue than previously possible. Unlike a conventional 2D breast mammogram — which takes a static image of the top and side view of your breast tissue — 3D breast mammograms include 15 more pictures taken from multiple angles. With computer processing, these images, or slices, are pieced together into a 3D image study that a radiologist can manipulate. Now, instead of reviewing just a flat image, doctors can view your entire breast tissue one millimeter at a time. Research has shown that this advanced breast imaging technology may detect up to 40 percent more cancers than digital mammography alone. In addition, radiologists are finding fewer callbacks are needed for additional images (literature shows a 30 percent reduction), which means fewer images, fewer biopsies — and greater peace of mind.

All-digital mammography

Mammography is an X-ray imaging technique specifically designed for the screening, detection and/or diagnosis of lumps, tumors and other abnormalities in the breast. With full-field digital mammography, the image can be adjusted to enhance differences in breast tissue, offering superior breast cancer detection rates and better diagnostic accuracy.

Biopsy - Breast, MR Guided

Magnetic resonance- or MR-guided breast biopsy uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to help locate a breast lump or abnormality and guide a needle to remove a tissue sample for examination under a microscope. It does not use ionizing radiation and leaves little to no scarring.

Biopsy - Breast, Stereotactic

Stereotactic breast biopsy uses mammography – a specific type of breast imaging that uses low-dose x-rays – to help locate a breast lump or abnormality and remove a tissue sample for examination under a microscope. It’s less invasive than surgical biopsy, leaves little to no scarring and can be an excellent way to evaluate calcium deposits or tiny masses that are not visible on ultrasound.

Biopsy - Breast, Ultrasound Guided

An ultrasound-guided breast biopsy uses sound waves to help locate a lump or abnormality and remove a tissue sample for examination under a microscope. It is less invasive than surgical biopsy, leaves little to no scarring and does not involve exposure to ionizing radiation.

Breast Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging of the breast uses sound waves to produce pictures of the internal structures of the breast. It’s primarily used to help diagnose breast lumps or other abnormalities your doctor may have found during a physical exam, mammogram or breast MRI. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive and does not use ionizing radiation.

Galactography

Galactography uses mammography and an injection of contrast material to create pictures of the inside of the breast’s milk ducts. It is most commonly used when a woman has experienced a bloody or clear discharge from the breast nipple but has an otherwise normal mammogram. It’s important not to squeeze the nipple prior to the exam as there may only be a small amount of fluid and it is necessary to see where it is coming from to perform the exam.
