Griffin Health combines state-of-the-art technology, a team of highly-trained physicians and staff, and a Planetree healing environment to offer our patients a comprehensive range of personalized breast care and wellness services, including multiple Breast Imaging services.
Breast Imaging Services
A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast. Screening mammograms are used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. Diagnostic mammograms are used to check for breast cancer after a lump or other sign or symptom of the disease has been found. Griffin utilizes the latest 3D technical innovations and screening protocols to allow detection of the smallest tumors.
Ultrasound is an excellent imaging modality for women with dense breast tissue, as well as providing a second look when initial mammography results are inconclusive. In addition to dense breast screenings, ultrasound can be used to evaluate diagnostic concerns, such as lumps and pain localized to the breast in both men and women.
Bilateral Breast MRI
Breast MRI is different from a mammogram (X-ray) and ultrasound. It evaluates the blood flow characteristics that may be associated with abnormal breast tissue (such as cancer) and is very sensitive.
Breast biopsy uses mammography to help pinpoint tissue for biopsy.
When patients need additional diagnostic testing, such as ultrasound or stereotactic biopsy, Diagnostic Navigators are assigned to assist them as patient advocates.
