About Eastside’s Breast and Diagnostic Center
About 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer during their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. While the cause of breast cancer is still unknown, we do know that it can be easier to treat breast cancer when it is found early.
Eastside’s Breast and Diagnostic Center partners with their patients to detect and treat breast cancer as quickly as possible and at its earliest stages by using the latest state-of-the-art technology and an experienced care team. Eastside’s Breast Center offers digital mammograms, the latest 3D mammography technology, breast ultrasound and breast MRI, breast biopsy, and genetic risk assessment and testing.
Eastside’s Breast and Diagnostic Center is an accredited Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiation for achieving high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs. The center is also accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Eastside’s Breast Center care team works alongside their comprehensive oncology program, which has been accredited with commendation by the Commission on Cancer since 1998. During the month of October, Eastside bands together with their community to increase awareness of the disease and honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
