BREAST IMAGING & INTERVENTIONS :
We habitat state of the art latest x- mammography  (3 D  Tomosynthesis)machine which is unique from other routine machines in providing more precise , high definition & crisp images helping us to detect the cancers in their budding stage (less than 1 cm). High resolution ultrasound is used in our department for diagnosis as well as for the interventions of breast lesions. Dedicated breast MR coil is used for patients refereed for Breast MRI to provide the patients with complete solution.

Our department provides following services

  • Full field digital mammography
  • 3 D tomosynthesis
  • High resolution breast ultrasound
  • MR Mammography
  • Stereotactic Biopsies & wire localization
  • Ultrasound guided biopsies, wire localizations & clip placements
