Comprehensive Breast Center

The Comprehensive Breast Center of The Don & Sybil Harrington Cancer Center is a patient-friendly, comprehensive breast center where state-of-the-art screening and diagnostic breast services can be performed in one convenient location, often the same day.

Computer Aided Detection (CAD), technology that double checks all screening mammograms, is routinely used.  CAD has been shown to increase breast cancer detection by up to 20%.  Diagnostic procedures such as ultrasound, cyst aspiration, ductography and non-surgical image-guided Mammotome ® biopsy provide women world-class care.

Through the Breast Nurse Navigator Program, a specially trained nurse assists every individual diagnosed with breast cancer by helping them navigate the system from initial diagnosis and insurance counseling through treatment and recovery.

In addition, the CBC offers bone densitometry which measures bone mass to confirm a diagnosis of osteoporosis or determine a patient's risk for developing the disease.
