An emphasis on education
One out of every eight women will face breast cancer at some point in their lives. That is why the emphasis at the Breast Center is on education and early detection for women of all ages. We provide access to printed materials in our resource room.
Access to lifesaving technology
In addition to traditional imaging and the latest ultrasound techniques, the Breast Center offers 3D mammography (digital breast tomosynthesis). 3D mammography can detect slightly more cancers than 2D mammography and may decrease the need to return for extra images. 3D mammography can be a useful screening tool for women with dense breast tissue.
A solid plan of action
At the ChristianaCare Breast Center, we are committed to providing the best, most complete breast care, education and support to the community we serve. If there is an abnormal finding on a mammogram, we offer the full support of a broad care team that includes radiologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, genetic counselors and support staff. Our team of experts will discuss results and treatment options with you and guide you through next steps in the process. This may include putting a plan in motion that is customized to your unique situation.
