Our breast health services

TriStar Northcrest offers a wide range of women’s care services, including 3D mammography, the latest in 3D imaging for women.

Breast cancer screening

A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast. Our breast health specialists use this diagnostic tool to detect cancer and other abnormalities as early as possible. Any previous mammography exams you’ve completed will seamlessly transfer to our imaging department to give us a comprehensive picture of your breast health and medical history.

Additionally, our imaging center offers a range of other tests, including:

  • Biopsies — extraction of cells or tissues to detect cancer and other diseases
  • Bone density testing, also called a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scans — measures bone density loss, which is a risk factor associated with breast cancer
  • Breast ultrasound — the use of sound waves to create an image of the breast’s internal structures

Your mammogram visit

At TriStar Northcrest, we want taking care of your breast health to be an easy thing to do. That’s why we offer convenient online mammogram scheduling.

Once you arrive for your exam, the entire screening should take 30 to 45 minutes. Our compassionate team includes radiologists and technologists who are specially trained in breast exams, and who are ready to make your experience comfortable and quick.

Occasionally, abnormal or unexpected mammography results require further examination. This can happen in women who have benign breast conditions or breast abnormalities.  It’s important to remember breast abnormalities are not always indicative of something being wrong. Our goal is early detection so we can identify the abnormality before it becomes a serious problem.

With a digital stereotactic breast biopsy, we can take a sample of an abnormal spot in a quick, minimally invasive procedure, requiring no stitches and offering a quick recovery. We provide a comfortable outpatient setting for these procedures.

Although many of these biopsies conclude in benign (noncancerous) results, the ability to quickly determine if an abnormality is malignant (cancerous) is extremely important. Early breast cancer detection and treatment are critical for the best outcomes.
