Partnering with you for breast health
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women. Wuesthoff Health System provides helpful services to educate women on breast health, and encourage self-exams and routine screenings.
Advanced diagnostic technology, digital mammography
Wuesthoff Health System uses advanced imaging technology that can detect breast abnormalities at the earliest stages. Diagnostic techniques include:
- Digital mammography – Produces a sharp, clear computer image that provides more accurate screenings.
- Breast MRI – North Knoxville Women's Center is equipped with a Sentinelle Vanguard™ breast table, which provides superior quality images and a more comfortable experience for patients.
- Ultrasound (sonography)
- Biopsy – When a lump or abnormal area is detected during screening, a biopsy can determine whether cells are cancerous. Advanced imaging technology — such as MRI or mammography — can be combined with minimally invasive techniques to obtain tissue samples.
