Wilma B. Bacon Mammography Center

The Wilma B. Bacon Mammography Center is a complete mammography services center offering:

  • Screening mammography
  • Diagnostic mammography
  • Breast ultrasound
  • Breast MRI
  • Biopsy with stereotactic, ultrasound, or MRI guidance
  • Localization for surgical biopsy
  • Sentinel lymph node identification
  • PET/CT evaluation and treatment of breast cancer
  • Bone densitometry

Every screening mammogram is examined by a board-certified radiologist and is also scanned by our computer aided detection (CAD) system called the ImageChecker®. The CAD system marks any area of the mammogram image that appears different from the sounding tissue. A radiologist consults the CAD image as a double check, closely examining any areas flagged. While many of the CAD's flagged areas turn out to be negative, the system can help radiologists identify suspicious tissue that otherwise may not be detected.
