Breast

Breast

Most women will have their breasts examined during their lifetime, as it is particularly important to start having mammograms once you turn 40. Aside from annual screening tests, you may be referred for a series of breast imaging procedures by your doctor for several reasons:

  • identification of lumps or noticeable abnormalities in the breast tissue or nipple region
  • diagnose and monitor breast cancer and tumours
  • evaluate breast implant integrity

We use a wide range of diagnostic imaging and interventional procedures, and often combine several examinations for a more accurate diagnosis. All mammograms performed at South Coast Radiology and The Women’s Imaging Centre are double read by two specialised Radiologists.
