Breast Center: Advanced Mammography

Video: Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

Early detection is essential for surviving breast cancer. Mammograms, self-exams and breast health screenings can give you a head start in the race against this disease. The American Cancer Society recommends a baseline mammogram between the ages of 35 and 40, with annual mammograms after age 40.

To help detect breast cancer in its earliest stages, the UF Health Breast Imaging Center – Jacksonville, UF Health Radiology – North and UF Health Breast Imaging Center – Emerson offer state-of-the-art mammography services. All locations now use the latest in breast imaging – 3D digital breast tomosynthesis. This technology provides UF Health radiologists a view of the breast layer by layer, showing the size, shape and location of abnormalities.

If a lump or abnormality is detected, the Breast Center offers a number of diagnostic services, including stereotactic, image-guided biopsies and fine needle aspiration biopsies. The center also offers ductal lavage, an innovative, minimally invasive method of searching for abnormal cells inside the milk ducts, where most breast cancer begins.
