The UR Medicine Breast Imaging Difference

UR Medicine Breast Imaging in Rochester, NY, is one of the few all-digital, full-service breast imaging and diagnostic centers in the area. We're committed to providing highly personalized quality service to all women.

  • Breast imaging is all we do. That means we're experts in the reading and interpretation of mammograms and breast ultrasounds. Accurate readings can translate into fewer unneeded biopsies and fewer missed cancers.

  • All of our technologists have 10 to 30 years' experience in mammography.

  • Our radiologists have specialized in mammography for decades and are on the forefront of emerging technologies. In fact, they are active in research, working to advance the art and science of accurate breast diagnosis.

  • Tomosynthesis or 3-D mammography is the latest technology and is available for all women at the Highland Hospital, Red Creek and Penfield locations.

  • We offer fast, convenient all-digital mammography for better detection, fewer callbacks and same-day results.

  • Our Computer Aided Detection (CAD) technology provides a "double check" to identify abnormalities.

  • Ultrasound is available at Red Creek for additional imaging.

  • High field MRI with dedicated breast coil, which is useful for screening high-risk women or breast implants, is available at Strong Memorial Hospital.

  • A stereotactic table allows radiologists to precisely locate suspicious calcifications with computer-guided imaging to perform needle biopsies.

  • Our Imaging Center staff and patients are backed by the full expertise of the University of Rochester Medical Center, which includes the Pluta Cancer Center at Wilmot Cancer Institute.

  • We also offer bone mineral density testing (DEXA scans) for your convenience at our Red Creek location.
