The Breast Center at Thomas Hospital provides a wide variety of services to screen and detect breast cancer and other conditions.

The purpose of breast health centers is to provide comprehensive care to women to ensure that their breasts remain healthy and that no minor versions of these conditions turn into serious breast cancer.

Our mammography services include:

  • 3D mammography
  • Whole breast ultrasound (ABUS)
  • High definition ultrasound
  • Breast biopsy
  • Cyst aspiration
  • Contrast mammography


Mammograms are X-rays that take pictures the inside of the breast. A trained radiologist reviews the images to analyze the breast for cancer and then consult with you if further diagnostic testing is needed.

Infirmary Health's Breast Centers and Imaging Centers are now all-3D mammography facilities. 3D mammography is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is a standard of care for breast cancer screening. 3D mammography, digital breast tomosynthesis, creates a 3D picture of the breast using X-rays. The mammography machine rotates while taking several low-dose images from different angle around the breast to create the 3D image. This technology allows the radiologist to view the breast in layers enhancing their ability to detect breast cancer and reduce false positives.

The Breast Center at Thomas Hospital utilizes Genius 3D Mammography technology to examine complex breast tissue to ensure that no cancer is undiagnosed.

Whole Breast Ultrasound (ABUS)

With almost 40% of women having dense breasts (less fat and more tissue), mammograms alone may not always work to identify breast cancer. However, our mammographers use the Invenia ABUS 2.0 - an FDA approved mammography system for women with dense breasts to ensure that their breasts are properly screened. Instead of using radiation, this state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to screen the entire breast.

Invenia ABUS 2.0 screening along with your screening mammogram will help provide a more complete evaluation of your dense breast tissue. Ask you physician about your breast density and risk factors for breast cancer.

Other Women's Imaging Services include:

  • Bone Density Scan

    • A bone density scan, also known as a DEXA scan, is a type of low-dose x-ray that measures calcium and other minerals in your bones. Bone density scans are often used to diagnose or assess your risk of osteoporosis, a health condition that weakens bones and makes them more likely to break. Osteoporosis is more common in women. According to the CDC, it affects almost 20% (1 in 5) of women aged 50 and over and almost 5% (1 in 20) of men aged 50 and over.
