Northwell Health offers comprehensive women's imaging services that emphasize quality, caring and a fully integrated approach to breast health.
Our women's imaging services include screening and diagnostic breast imaging, as well as image-guided breast biopsy and tumor-localization for surgical procedures. Every exam is read/interpreted by a breast radiologist with subspecialty training and years of experience. In fact, our breast specialists read only breast images, which studies have shown increases the ability to spot abnormalities while decreasing the number of unnecessary biopsies. And we use state-of-the-art equipment in order to minimize radiation exposure while maximizing our doctors’ ability to visualize organs, function and disease processes.
When an image indicates a need for more care, our breast radiologists collaborate closely with Northwell’s breast specialists in surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, genetics and more—a team approach that provides comprehensive care. Our women's imaging specialists also help advance the field through research on a broad range of topics, from imaging technology to the basic science of breast cancer.
Our breast radiologists’ extra training and expertise means that they are adept at all aspects of breast imaging. They are equally skilled at interpreting common tests and ones that are needed only rarely, which can mean a more accurate diagnosis. Our highly trained and caring women's imaging technologists and nurses help ensure that every image is of the highest possible quality, while providing the attention and thoughtful guidance that brings patients comfort and reassurance during what can be a stressful time.
Over the course of a lifetime, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Take the breast cancer risk assessment to determine your risk.
