Image Guided Procedures

 
 
 
  • Stereotactic and ultrasound guided biopsies and aspirations.
  • Biopsies are scheduled at the time the recommendation is made by our radiologists.
  • Biopsies can usually be performed within days of recommendation – in certain cases, the same day.
  • Continuity of care - because we perform biopsies at our facility, patients have familiar faces during their procedures.
  • Final recommendations are made when biopsy results become available - these are communicated to the patient by our staff.
  • Surgical consultation is facilitated, if necessary.
 
 

Dedicated Mammographers

  • Together, our radiologists read more than 12,000 breast imaging studies every year and have performed thousands of biopsies and aspirations under ultrasound, stereotactic, and MRI guidance.
 
 
 
 
  • Dr. Philip Ding offers surgical consultation at our center every Wednesday in order to minimize inconvenience and confusion for our patients.
  • The strong cooperative effort between Dr. Ding and our radiologists allows easy coordination of imaging and surgical care.
