Diagnosis

Northside Hospital diagnoses more cases of breast cancer than any other community hospital in the Southeast. Our staff of specialists are fully trained in diagnostic mammography and breast ultrasound, offering the latest in diagnostic services, including:

  • Ultrasound
  • PET scanning
  • Galactography
  • Sentinel Lymph Node Mapping
  • Image-guided biopsies
  • Mammography
  • Breast MRI

Digital Mammography

Northside Hospital’s breast imaging centers offers digital mammography, a type of mammogram allowing radiologists to magnify breast images and adjust brightness and contrast to distinguish normal tissue from abnormal tissue. Additionally, a computer-assisted detection (CAD) system gives radiologists a “second set of eyes” by flagging areas of potential concern.

Breast MRI

Northside receives patient referrals from across Georgia for breast MRI services. An MRI is an important tool for doctors to further evaluate a tumor. Research remains ongoing in determining the role of MRI in breast cancer screening; currently it is recommended only in high-risk patients.
