Screening & Diagnostic Mammography: Indiana’s FIRST Source for 3D Mammograms
More advanced than digital mammography, this technology improves the sensitivity and accuracy of mammograms, making it easier for our breast radiologists to detect abnormalities, while reducing the chance for false positive results, and the need for recall appointments. In addition to 3D mammography, we offer a full suite of diagnostic imaging, including Ultrasound and MRI.
Breast Cancer Risk Assessments
All new Breast Care Center patients receive a comprehensive breast cancer risk assessment.
Methodist Hospitals employs the most advanced minimally-invasive interventional tools, including MRI biopsies and stereotactic- and ultrasound-guided biopsies, as well as cyst aspirations, ductograms and excisional biopsies.
