TEPAS Breast Center offers a coordinated approach to breast health with services for preventative care, early detection, accurate diagnosis, treatment and ongoing support. We offer advanced screening and diagnostic services close to home and feature the most advanced technology to air in early detection of breast conditions such as tomosynthesis (3D mammography), diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound and breast biopsy.
3D mammography produces very sharp, detailed images of the breast through low dose X-rays. This is especially beneficial in young women, women with dense breasts, women at high risk for breast cancer and women with a personal history of breast cancer.
If a patient experiences an abnormal mammogram, a breast ultrasound is often performed to assist in interpreting digital mammography. Ultrasounds use sound waves to produce pictures of breast tissue, and can determine whether a lump is concerning or simply a fluid-filled cyst.
All suspicious breast masses are biopsied for diagnosis. Biopsy removes tissue for study and helps detect cancer early, when it is most curable. An alternative to the operating room, TEPAS Breast Center performs biopsies in-house with Mammotome®, a gentler breast biopsy that uses ultrasound to pinpoint suspicious areas.
