Memorial Hermann Locations Offer Superior Breast Care Across the City
Memorial Hermann gives women the best breast-care experience available at 19 Houston-area locations, combining advanced technology with fellowship-trained radiologists and a comfortable, spa-like environment. Services include 2-D mammography, 3-D digital breast tomosynthesis, diagnostic mammography, digital mammography, breast ultrasound and breast MRI, as well as bone density scans and ultrasound, stereotactic and MRI breast and lymph node biopsies.
Fifteen locations offer MD Anderson Breast Care with Memorial Hermann, and 15 sites offer 3-D breast tomosynthesis, an FDA-approved digital technology that helps physicians detect smaller tumors at the earliest stages of breast cancer. Tomosynthesis takes 15 successive images at slightly different angles across the breast, resulting in improved accuracy in screening results and better pinpointing of lesion location. Clinical trials using the Dimensions 3-D system showed measurable improvement in clinical performance over conventional mammography. The trials also showed significant gains in specificity, giving radiologists the confidence to rule out cancer and reduce callbacks. Other benefits include improved lesion and margin visibility and the ability to accurately localize structures in the breast.
Tomosynthesis is available at Memorial Hermann Breast Care Centers at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center, Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital, Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital, Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital, Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital, Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital, Sienna Convenient Care Center, Cypress Breast Care Center, CyFair Imaging Center, South Katy Imaging Center, Pearland Imaging Center, Victory Women's Imaging Center and Upper Kirby Breast Center.
The Bobetta Lindig Breast Care Center at Memorial City recently added the Hologic Affirm™ Prone Biopsy System with both 2-D and 3-D imaging, enabling radiologists to accurately biopsy lesions seen only on 3-D breast tomosynthesis with patients in a more relaxed prone position. A breast cancer support group meets monthly at that location.
Breast Care Centers at eight hospitals – Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center, Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital, Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital, Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital, Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital and Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital – bring together a multidisciplinary tumor board comprised of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons who discuss care options for the best possible patient outcomes. There are seven Nurse Navigators across the Memorial Hermann system who provide additional resources to patients diagnosed with cancer.
