Women's Imaging

Badge of ACR Gold Accreditation as a Facility for Mammography
Northern Radiology's Women's Imaging Center offers the most advanced breast imaging technology in a calm and serene atmosphere. Our newly designed woman's imaging waiting room is an oasis designed for relaxation, inspiration and meditation. Women can sit back and listen to mind easing music, a soothing water fountain, enjoy some refreshments and have the pleasure of wonderful conversation with the Woman's Imaging Center receptionist Jean, who truly makes our patients feel at home.

What to Expect

Once patients have reached the mammography suite, which features our new Fuji Cristalle 3D mammography, the patient will be greeted by one of our three American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) board certified mammographers who will guide the patient through the mammography experience. Whether the patient is here for her routine annual screening or a diagnostic mammogram, Rhonda, Shelly or Christine will explain all aspects of the mammogram. Diagnostic imaging may include additional mammographic images as well as a possible breast ultrasound that may need to be done, either as the result of being called back by one of our American Board of Radiology certified radiologists or if a patient presents with a breast problem. Our mammographers are well experienced and extremely compassionate and passionate about women’s health care. It is their responsibility to provide patients with the highest level of care while providing the radiologists with the highest quality of mammographic images.

If one of our radiologists determines that a diagnostic mammogram patient needs a breast ultrasound, one will be performed on our brand new Philips Epic 5 ultrasound machine by either Cyndi or Allesia, who are both certified under the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARMDS). The breast ultrasound is performed directly after the mammogram has been reviewed by one of our radiologists. Both Cyndi and Allesia have a wealth of experience in ultrasound imaging making them an important asset in the women’s imaging team.

All diagnostic mammogram patients have the opportunity to have the results of their exam explained to them in our consultation room by one of Northern Radiology’s radiologists. If the radiologist believes a breast biopsy is warranted, the biopsy can be performed same day, next day or at a time that is convenient for the patient. Breast biopsies can be performed either with ultrasound or done as a stereotactic breast biopsy performed in the mammography suite. Regardless of the approach, biopsies are performed by our caring and experienced Radiology Special Assistant (RSA) Adrienne Haskins under the direct supervision of the radiologist. Ms. Haskins performs the biopsies with members of our women’s imaging team, such as the ultrasound or mammography technologists and with our nurse Kristie, who is always ready to take care of our patients with a loving embrace.

Not only does Northern Radiology have the latest technology in mammography and breast ultrasound, we also offer breast MRI exams in our new Phillips Ingenia 3T MRI. Our new MRI is a large bore magnet that is surrounded by ambient lighting, sights and sounds for a more relaxing MRI experience. Rest assured, patient exams will be performed by highly trained, caring and compassionate MRI technologists who truly care about imaging, patient care and patient safety. 
myriadlogo Northern Radiology is proud of our partnership with Myriad Labs. If a patient qualifies for genetic services, the patient is escorted to the Northern Radiology genetics consultation room and shown an informative, brief video explaining the services Myriad provides. The patient has the opportunity to talk to a genetic counselor, at no charge to the patient, about genetic testing. The counselor explains all aspects of genetic testing, to include any concerns regarding the cost of testing. Remarkably 96% of health insurance plans cover genetic testing, making this important step in patients taking a greater role in their health care future financially possible. Genetic testing is easy and painless (no needles!) and done right here in the Northern Radiology office. Once Northern Radiology receives patient labs results, patients will sit down for a one on one appointment with our Radiology Special Assistant, Adrienne Haskins to go over the results of their genetic testing.
