Breast Imaging is one of the most complex specialties in all of radiology. Numerous studies have been published evaluating early detection of breast cancer and the performance of radiologists who perform breast imaging. Subspecialty training and experience is essential in providing women the best possible care. What this means for our patients and for our referring physicians is that specific expertise in breast imaging matters.
American Radiology Associates defines this as its core principle in Breast Imaging. Staffed with fellowship-trained, experienced breast imaging physicians, the Breast Imaging Division of ARA provides unparalleled care with the highest level of expertise. Our physicians are actively involved in innovative research and have been nationally published and recognized for their work. We are actively involved in patient care throughout the Metroplex at facilities that offer state-of-the-art technologies in breast imaging, including advanced breast imaging and biopsy techniques with 2D and 3D (tomosynthesis) mammography, ultrasound, and MRI.
Beyond patient care, we also believe strongly in sharing our expertise with our peers, colleagues and our patients. We are directly responsible for training the next generation of Breast Imagers with a very active, highly sought after residency and fellowship program in breast imaging. We are active in educational programs for both women in the community and our referring providers. We are the experts that train the experts.
Our goal is to provide tertiary-level breast care to every patient, regardless of where they are seen. We personally evaluate all of our diagnostic patients and are always available for direct consultation with both our referring physicians and our patients. For diagnostic evaluations, we give patients their results at the time of their exam and provide patients instructions as to the next steps in their care.
