Hoag Offers Breakthrough Cancer Screening and Detection Technology for Women
Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian has expanded its world-class breast
center in Newport Beach with the opening of a satellite center in the
Woodbridge community of Irvine, enhancing its status as the largest and
most state-of-the-art facility of its kind in Southern California.
The new Hoag Imaging and Breast Center Woodbridge represents Hoag’s
ongoing commitment in the fight against breast cancer. The center will
make it convenient for patients to receive many of the revolutionary services
that Hoag Breast Care Center offers including 3D digital breast tomosynthesis,
a revolutionary technology that detects breast cancer in young women and
women of any age with dense breast tissue.
“We are thrilled to offer 3D digital breast tomosynthesis in a second
location,” says Gary M. Levine, M.D., director of breast imaging
at Hoag Breast Care Center and one of the nation’s leading experts
in breast tomosynthesis. “Early detection of breast cancer translates
to saved lives and now, women can more conveniently undergo advanced screenings
that are superior to conventional mammography.”
In addition to tomosynthesis, patients will be able to undergo services
such as screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, ultrasound-guided
needle biopsy and DEXA, for Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry.
Patients who want to undergo the tomosynthesis screenings or other procedure
can make appointments through Hoag Radiology Scheduling: 949-764-5780.
