Early Detection Saves Lives

April 03, 2014

Largely due to early detection and treatment, deaths from breast cancer have been on the decline since the 1990s. When breast cancer is caught in its most early stages it is most curable.

At Providence Tarzana’s Women’s Center, we offer the most advanced diagnostic technology available, including digital mammography, which offers numerous advantages over traditional mammography. With this technology, the image is sent to the radiologist’s computer providing the ability to closely examine any area, zooming in, adjusting brightness or changing the contrast, making all areas of the breast easier to see. Should your physician want to consult a breast specialist about your mammogram, the digital image files can be sent electronically for review.

Providence is also the home breast MRI, one of the newest technologies in the detection and assessment of breast cancer. This adds to the continuum of care to the current services provided at Providence Tarzana Women’s Center, including, ultrasound, MRI-assisted breast biopsy, and bone densitometry.

State-of-the-art technologies coupled with compassionate care create a comfortable environment for women having their routine exam or more complex procedures.
