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.
