The breast imaging section is a high-volume Breast Health Center with a high-risk cancer screening program. Our fellows receive comprehensive training in breast imaging, image interpretation and breast interventional procedures. The section performs more than 45,000 breast imaging studies per year, including 40 breast biopsies, 20 breast needle localizations and Magseed placements each week. The program is fully digital and tomosynthesis capable and offers screening and diagnostic exams and image-guided procedures using mammography, tomosynthesis, ultrasound and MRI. Contrast-enhanced mammography is also available.
Radiology services are fully integrated with those of breast surgeons and other ancillary staff to provide comprehensive breast health care. Training primarily occurs in the reading rooms and clinics, where fellows work alongside attending faculty. Each fellow has 12 months of breast imaging with an opportunity for internal paid moonlighting in the general radiology call pool.
