Breast Screening & Diagnosis

AMI Radiologists specialize in high-risk screening and breast diagnosis.

Breast Screening plans should be determined based on a patient’s risk level. Women with an average risk should begin screening mammograms at age 40. Women with a higher risk may need to start sooner or include other screening options in their preventative plan.

Factors that can put women at a higher risk for breast cancer include:

  • Personal history of breast cancer, lobular carcinoma, or atypical hyperplasia
  • Close relative diagnosed with breast cancer before age 50
  • Heterogeneously dense or extremely dense breast tissue*
  • Lifetime Breast Cancer Risk Score over 20%*
  • Three or more family members in one lineage with any form of cancer
  • More than one cancer in a family member
  • Radiation treatment to the chest area between ages 10-30
  • BRCA, ATM, CHEK2, PALB2, TP53 or PTEN gene mutations
    *Determined and included with every screening mammogram at AMI

Men and women with any kind of lump or new breast abnormality should receive a diagnostic mammogram right away. Once a diagnostic mammogram has been completed, there may be need for other diagnostics techniques to diagnose the irregularity.

Breast Diagnosis imaging procedures include:
Mammograms
Ultrasound
MRI
Stereotactic Biopsy
Image Guided Biopsy
Cyst Aspiration
Ductography/Galactography
