The UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Breast Center has some of the most advanced technology available in the country and offers all forms of breast imaging, including the following:
We are an all-digital mammography unit with a dedicated breast MRI coil. Digital mammography has been proven to be superior to conventional mammography in the diagnosis of small breast cancers, particularly in women under 50 and those with dense breasts.
Computer Aided Detection (CAD) technology is used as a “second look” at the original mammogram, with suspicious areas highlighted for the radiologist to review. CAD technology has been proven to increase the accuracy of mammography.
To ensure the highest level of accuracy in interpreting your images, we have three radiologists who are fellowship trained in breast imaging, offering the highest level of expertise to you. For your peace of mind, same-day mammogram results by radiologists are available to you, if desired.
UAMS has assembled a Breast Team™ of some of the most respected physicians and health care professionals in the nation, experts who specialize in diagnosing and fighting breast cancer. This team consists of breast surgeons, breast radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, plastic surgeons and geneticists.
