Breast MRIs (conducted in the UAMS Cancer Institute MRI facility)
We are an all-digital mammography center and are accredited as an American College of Radiology Breast Center of Excellence. Digital mammographyhas been proven to be superior to conventional mammography in the diagnosis of small breast cancers, particularly in women under 50 and those with dense breasts. And all diagnostic patients receive the results of their tests before leaving the Center.
Computer Aided Detection (CAD) technology is used as a “second look” at the original mammogram, with suspicious areas highlighted for the radiologist to review. CAD technology has been proven to increase the accuracy of mammography.
UAMS has assembled a Breast Team™ of some of the most respected physicians and health care professionals in the nation, experts who specialize in diagnosing and fighting breast cancer. This team consists of breast surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and plastic surgeons. All surgical and complicated cases are discussed with this group at a weekly multi-disciplinary breast conference.
The UAMS Breast Center is a self-referral clinic. Although UAMS does not require a referral for this clinic, some insurance providers require a referral for specialty care. Please check with your insurance provider prior to requesting an appointment. You may request an appointment by calling 501-526-6100.
