Breast Imaging and Diagnostics

Offering innovation in breast cancer detection

ProHealth Care Breast Imaging Services perform more than 35,000 mammograms per year.  Within Waukesha County there are four sites for this service; ProHealth Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital and the Pewaukee, Mukwonago, and New Berlin ProHealth Medical Group clinics. ProHealth Care is the only health system in Waukesha County to offer immediate results for screening and diagnostic mammograms.

Most advanced technology                                                                                                                                                                                                       ProHealth Care was the first health care system in Wisconsin to make 3D mammography (digital breast tomosynthesis DBT) available to women. All sites offer digital 2D mammograms as well as 3D mammograms. 

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 screening 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, MRI Guided

MRI-guided core biopsies use MRI images to locate the area of concern and to help guide the biopsy needle to a precise location. This technique helps ensure that the area that is biopsied is the exact area where the abnormality was seen on the MRI.  Samples are reviewed by a pathologist and the patient is notified of the results usually in 1-2 days.

Biopsy - Breast, Stereotactic

Stereotactic core biopsies use low-dose X-rays to target an area of concern. This minimally invasive technique ensures precise sampling of the abnormality. Samples are reviewed by a pathologist and the patient is notified of the results usually in 1-2 days.

Biopsy - Breast, Ultrasound Guided

Ultrasound-guided core biopsies use Ultrasound images to locate the area of concern and to help guide the biopsy needle to a precise location. This technique helps ensure that the area that is biopsied is the exact area where the abnormality was seen on the Ultrasound. Samples are reviewed by a pathologist and the patient is notified of the results usually in 1-2 days.

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.

Galactogram

For patients who have a suspicious type of nipple discharge, we perform galactography to identify the possible cause. Contrast is injected into the duct producing the discharge and digital imaging is performed. We are able to perform imaging guided biopsies of abnormalities detected by this method and diagnose the cause of discharge.
