3D & Digital Mammography

Windsong performs all screening mammograms using 3D technology as the standard of care. Also referred to as digital breast tomosynthesis or “tomo,” 3D mammography offers better image quality and greater accuracy in detecting breast concerns at an early stage – and at a lower radiation dose. This advanced technology is available to patients at all Windsong breast center locations (including the mobile mammogram bus). Most insurance plans cover annual 3D screening mammograms at 100%.

Dense Breast Tissue

Windsong is receiving a growing number of requests for mammograms + screening breast ultrasound for women identified as having dense breast tissue. We recognize that this is an addition to your annual screening plan and want to make it as convenient as possible for you to manage. Windsong will schedule both your mammogram and screening breast ultrasound for the same visit to get you in, and out, with ease at many of our locations across WNY!

Breast Ultrasound

Breast ultrasound technology uses sound waves to evaluate specific areas of concern that are ‘palpable’ (can be felt), such as a breast lump, or anything identified on a mammogram that requires further study. Breast ultrasound is an imaging technology often used in combination with diagnostic mammography.

While mammography images evaluate the entire breast, ultrasound images can provide more information on a specific area. Windsong breast sonographers are certified through the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers and have met rigid academic and clinical guidelines to provide our patients with the highest level of care.

Breast MRI

Windsong was the first imaging center in Western New York to receive the ACR accreditation for breast MRI. Breast MRI is a highly advanced technology that produces images of soft tissue in the breast.

When used with screening and diagnostic mammography, MRI technology provides additional information for the early detection and diagnosis of breast disease. And for women with a high risk of breast cancer, breast MRI can serve as an additional safeguard.

 Breast Biopsy

A needle biopsy of the breast is performed when the radiologist identifies an area of concern through diagnostic imaging. Needle biopsy is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that uses a needle to retrieve a small sample of breast tissue. This tissue sample is then studied by a pathologist to confirm whether the breast tissue is benign (no cancer found) or cancerous.

Breast Surgery

There are times when breast surgery may be required as part of a treatment plan. Our board certified surgeons and fully trained support staff are committed to providing each patient with expert, compassionate surgical care.
