Breast Imaging

Advanced breast imaging is available at Willis-Knighton hospitals and outpatient imaging centers. This provides women and their physicians with the most sophisticated technology to detect breast cancer at its earliest stages when it can be effectively treated. The American Cancer Society recommends that every woman over 40 be examined for breast cancer once a year. Learn more about the imaging options available to you at Willis-Knighton.

  • Tomosynthesis - 3D Mammogram
    This revolutionary new technology allows doctors to examine your breast tissue, one layer at a time, similar to reviewing pages of looking at the book cover. There is no additional compress and it takes only a few seconds longer than a traditional mammogram. 
  • Breast Ultrasound – Sonogram
    Using sound waves, black-and-white images are created as a wand move back and forth over your breast.
  • MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging
    This highly sensitive technology uses powerful magnets and radio waves and involves the use of a dye to help the radiologist identify any abnormalities in your breast tissue.
