Mammography is the first line of defense in the detection of breast cancer. The Comprehensive Breast Center at Bryn Mawr Hospital offers the latest technology and expertise in breast imaging. All services are designed to give women accurate and timely information to make informed decisions about their breast health.
Radiology services are provided by board-certified physicians who are dedicated breast imagers. Our technologists are mammography-certified through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
Digital Mammography: Digital mammography captures images and converts them to a computerized display, offering greater clarity and reducing the need for callbacks. In addition, our computer-aided detection software provides a second look at films, increasing our cancer detection rate.
High-Resolution Ultrasound: High-resolution scanning provides superior detail for a more accurate and complete analysis of breast abnormalities.
High-Risk Assessment and Genetics Screening: Through our High-Risk Breast Cancer Program, we help women identify their lifetime risk for breast cancer and offer recommendations for screening and healthcare decisions. We also offer innovative initiatives for high-risk women, including ductal lavage and ductoscopy.
Bone Density Scanning: Bone density scanning, also called dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) or bone densitometry, is a simple, painless procedure that measures bone density, an accurate predictor for osteoporosis. Since many women with a higher risk of breast cancer should not use estrogen therapies, determining a risk for bone weakness is important.
Education: Our clinical staff provides comprehensive instruction on breast self-exams and recommended health maintenance.
