Our commitment to offer integrated services ensures that any questionable findings are reviewed by our team of breast experts.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) and the American College of Radiology recommends that all women should undergo annual screening mammography beginning at age 40. Diagnostic mammography and breast ultrasound are available for women with palpable lumps, nipple discharge, or for patients with prior history of breast cancer. For symptomatic patients under the age of 30, a breast ultrasound is generally recommended as the initial imaging exam.

Patients can be evaluated for a high risk of breast cancer by review of their family history and DNA analysis. The American Cancer Society and the IHS team of breast care specialists recommend annual breast MRI in addition to mammography for these high-risk patients.

Imaging Healthcare Specialists strives to be the leader in breast imaging and is proud to be recognized as a BICOE facility.
