List of Procedures in this Category

Automated Breast Ultrasound Screening (ABUS)

An advanced breast cancer-screening tool that can help uncover cancer that may be hidden in women with dense breasts.

Breast Cyst Aspiration

The removal of fluid from a breast cyst that decreases the pressure (relieving any pain) and allows for the testing of cells.

Breast MRI

A noninvasive test that uses an intravenous contrast, magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer to produce detailed images of the breast's soft tissue.

Breast Ultrasound

A noninvasive procedure that uses sound waves to create an image of the tissues inside your breast.

Diagnostic Mammography

A special X-ray of the breast that may be performed if there are signs or symptoms that require further evaluation.

Image-Guided Breast Biopsy

A non-surgical procedure that uses the aid of an imaging device to guide a Radiologist while performing a Biopsy on a breast lump or mass.

Screening Mammography

A Mammogram that is performed when you have no breast symptoms and is used to "screen" for an unsuspected abnormality.

Tomosynthesis/3D

A Mammogram that captures multiple images from several angles, allowing Radiologists to more thoroughly examine breast tissue one thin section at a time.

FRC is a fantastic organization and place to have your radiological and diagnostic needs taken care of. The staff are very professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I especially like the ability to get the reports on-line. I have used the Woodburn and Arlington Boulevard  facilities. They are great. The new check-in process at Woodburn is an excellent idea eliminating the lines in front of the check-in windows. Keep up the great work – nice having you here!!!!!
 
THANK YOU!
