Breast Imaging

The purpose of breast imaging and screenings are to find breast cancers early. Emory’s Breast Imaging Center utilizes the latest ultrasound technology to perform mammograms that are able to detect breast cancer up to two years before it can be felt by self-examination.

Emory’s Breast Imaging Center provides highly skilled board-certified radiologists experienced in mammography and breast procedures. Our breast radiologists conduct mammography examinations, ultrasounds, as well as, non-surgical interventional procedures. They are also responsible for communicating screening results, diagnoses management, and treatment plans, to you and your physician.
