We give you access to our panel of breast imaging specialists for second opinions. Every radiologist is fellowship trained and specializes in providing diagnostic interpretations for mammograms, ultrasounds, and MRIs of the breast. Our radiologists are experienced in reading even the most complex breast imaging cases.
Although mammography is considered the most effective breast cancer screening tool, its success is minimized without a qualified radiologist’s interpretation. Mammography misses approximately 13% of breast cancers and the number may be higher if factors like breast density are present. The chance of having a false positive result after one mammogram ranges from 7-12%.
