General Information About Breast Imaging
Breast imaging radiology procedures include mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, and breast procedures such as breast biopsy, for breast cancer screening and diagnosis.
The most common examinations interpreted by SPR radiologists in this specialty area of imaging include screening and diagnostic mammography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography or CT examinations. When necessary for diagnosis, specialty trained radiologists perform interventional radiology services for improved treatment planning and outcomes.
All of the breast imaging specialists at St. Paul Radiology are board certified and fellowship trained physicians. St. Paul Radiology plays a major role in breast cancer screening in the Twin Cities east metropolitan area, providing administrative, imaging and procedural expertise to three major breast care centers, and imaging support to many smaller breast imaging sites. Our radiologists actively participate in breast care conferences, helping to formulate treatment plans for patients in concert with oncologists, surgeons and pathologists. We strive to detect breast cancer at its earliest, most successfully-treated stages.
Our team of physicians take pride in providing compassionate, timely care for our patients, using state-of-the-art technology.
