Wake Radiology provides a full range of comprehensive breast exams in Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill and the surrounding Triangle area. Our breast imaging radiologists and technologists understand the importance that dedication, compassion and expertise play in building a cohesive and effective approach to the diagnosis of breast cancer. We are devoted to maintaining excellence across a comprehensive set of breast imaging methods, following best practices and going above and beyond what any other local provider does. Wake Radiology is focused on providing the most specific answers possible to women and their referring providers.
The latest in breast exams: 3D mammography
Wake Radiology is pleased to offer Hologic Genius™ 3D mammography at most of our breast imaging Office across the Triangle and beyond. 3D mammography is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic tool designed for early breast cancer detection. The main benefits are:
- Greater accuracy for earlier and easier detection. 3D mammography has been shown to improve breast cancer detection by 27-50%.
- Fewer call backs. 3D mammography has been shown to lower recall rates by 17-40%.
3D mammography is performed in conjunction with a traditional 2D digital mammogram to create a more complete picture of breast tissue. During the 3D part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple images. A computer then uses these images to produce a layered 3D image of the breast tissue. This provides greater detail and allows our specialized breast imaging radiologist to see “inside” the breast layer by layer to find cancers earlier than ever. Learn more
Evening, Saturday and same-day appointments are available, plus walk-ins are welcome. While patients must have seen a primary care doctor in the past 18 months, a signed physician referral is not required for this annual exam. Patients can schedule their annual screening by calling us or submitting an appointment request online. Learn more
