Commitment to Our Patients
We offer the latest in digital screening technology.
Our full-field digital mammography system helps doctors detect breast cancer in its earliest stages by providing sharper, more detailed images of breast tissue.
We give you time and attention.
Every image we take provides important information about your
health, We take the time to ensure we get the best images possible. We also offer optional clinical breast exams by specially trained nurses.
Our staff makes our technology even better.
With mammograms, the best quality image is greatly dependent on the skill of the technologist. Our highly-trained technologists provide doctors with the best quality images and perspectives.
You get a fast diagnosis.
We do everything to reduce this period of uncertainty. Working with experienced radiologists and your doctor, we quickly schedule ultrasounds and other tests, all performed at our Center, to help you quickly determine the cause of any abnormality.
We offer minimally invasive breast biopsies.
If further diagnosis is required, we offer non-surgical, minimally invasive breast biopsies that provide doctors with the most accurate information as quickly as possible, and minimize your discomfort.
Specially-trained nurses are here to help.
If a biopsy is required, you will be assigned a specially-trained nurse as your personal support and education provider for the duration of the diagnostic and, if necessary, treatment process.
We partner with leading radiologists.
Adirondack Radiology Associates provides expert review and analysis of breast images and works closely with doctors if additional testing is required. All of the images at The Breast Center are reviewed locally, not transmitted to out-of-town facilities.
We are part of the The C. R. Wood Cancer Center.
If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, you and your family will have access to the full resources of the nationally accredited C. R. Wood Cancer Center, the region’s most comprehensive center for cancer treatment, research, support and education.
