Northside Hospital is pleased to announce that its former Stockbridge CT Imaging center is now Northside/Stockbridge Women’s Imaging, effective Oct. 12. The new center is dedicated to the screening and early diagnosis of breast cancer in women.
Northside Hospital is the local leader in breast cancer services, diagnosing and treating more cases of the disease than any other hospital in the Southeast. Early detection of breast cancer allows more treatment options and a better chance of survival.
“Inconvenience is one of the biggest reasons many women delay their annual mammogram,” said Lynn Baxter, M.D., director of breast imaging at Northside Hospital. “We hope that by increasing access to high quality breast imaging with excellent patient care that is close to home, we can save more women’s lives.”
Northside Hospital offers comprehensive breast imaging services with the latest technology available and subspecialized, specialty-trained radiologists who review every image obtained. More than 80,000 screening mammograms are performed annually at the hospital’s network of women’s imaging centers (more than 18 locations) across Metro Atlanta.
Northside/Stockbridge Women’s Imaging continues that tradition. The dedicated women’s imaging center offers digital screening mammography, 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis), bone densitometry and general ultrasound. Additionally, breast MRI is available nearby at Northside’s Village Center Imaging location. Northside was the first hospital in Atlanta to offer 3D mammography, one of the latest tools in the fight against breast cancer. In addition, each of Northside’s women’s imaging centers offers computer-aided detection technology, which offers “a second set of eyes” on every mammogram performed.
“Northside Hospital is committed to providing women with the education and resources they need to stay healthy,” said Dr. Baxter. “We are excited to expand our state-of-the-art women’s imaging services to Henry County.”
Northside/Stockbridge Women’s Imaging is located at 239 Village Center Pkwy, Suite 160, in Stockbridge. Free parking is available on site. Walk-ins are welcome with a referral. To schedule an appointment, call (404) 851-6577.
