Our Doctors

With the most advanced and accurate breast imaging services in New Jersey, our specialists provide expert diagnosis, care, and treatment for those affected by or at risk of developing breast cancer. Our comprehensive approach includes mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and biopsy services and personalized treatment plans. 

Breast Imaging

Mammography typically is the first step for screening. We offer 3D mammography at all locations. 3D mammograms are highly sensitive in accurately detecting different types of breast changes, including breast cancer, especially among dense breast tissue.
An advanced imaging technology that combines the benefits of high-resolution 3D mammography with functional imaging performed using a contrast agent. This form of mammography provides information about a tumor’s blood supply, which helps to improve breast cancer detection and imaging accuracy. The technology also offers an advanced imaging alternative for women who cannot have breast MRI.
If a suspicious area is detected during a mammogram, or the initial results are not certain, we may recommend a high-resolution ultrasound to provide additional information.
MRI is highly sensitive imaging that may be used to screen women who have an elevated risk of breast cancer. MRI does not use X-rays.

Breast Biopsy

If further testing is required, a breast biopsy might be necessary. This procedure involves removing a small sample of breast tissue for detailed analysis. Our breast care team is skilled in performing various types of biopsies, ensuring precise and accurate diagnosis.

A small needle is guided into the lump or suspicious area. Several small areas of tissue, called cores, are removed for testing.
A 3D image of the breast is created with your mammogram images. The radiologist uses the 3D image to guide the needle to the exact site of the lump or suspicious area.
A suction device is used to pull tissue and fluid gently into a hollow needle, to increase the amount of cells removed for testing.
A very thin needle is inserted into the lump or suspicious area. A sample of tissue or fluid is removed for testing.
Radiologists sometimes use an imaging procedure, such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to help guide the needle to the exact area for needle biopsy. Needle localization for surgical biopsy – In some cases the lump may be hard for your doctor to reach. A needle with a thin wire is inserted into the lump using imaging. The surgeon then follows this wire to find the lump and remove a tissue sample for testing.
