WakeRad UNC REX offers 3D mammography at all of our outpatient imaging offices. We have offices in every major community in the Triangle.

Our team combines a clean, safe experience with quality imaging and compassionate care. We will have your in, out and on you way in 30 minutes or less!

Artificial intelligence & Breast Cancer Detection

We’re proud to be the first and only radiology practice in the Triangle to adopt state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) technology to aid in breast cancer detection.

Our breast imaging radiologists have implemented iCAD’s Profound AI®, the first FDA cleared AI platform designed for use with 3D mammography. Dr. Susan Kennedy explains how this AI tool works and benefits our 3D mammogram patients.

3D mammograms performed at Wake Rad UNC REX are interpreted by one of our experienced, subspecialty radiologists who is supported by ProFound AI. There is no additional cost to our patients for this extra detection tool.

New Guidelines for CT Lung Cancer Screenings

The most effective way to reduce your risk of lung cancer is to not smoke or quit if you do. The second way is to be screened. Medical imaging and low-dose CT exams have changed the way lung cancer is detected. Early detection can give lung cancer patients greater access to curative treatments.

New screening recommendations from the United States Preventative Services Task Force recently expanded who could benefit from a CT lung screening. Learn why you’ll want to talk with your doctor if you’re eligible.

It’s Safe to Return to Care

Your health and safety is always our top priority.

Even as more of us get COVID-19 vaccines (yippee!), we continue to modify appointment times for all imaging services, including screening mammograms, to allow for improved patient safety, social distancing and additional cleaning time.

Some helpful safety tips include:

  • Skip the wait and pre-register online
  • Give us your mobile number and, when you arrive, we’ll text you when we’re ready to begin your exam
  • Please wear a mask to your appointment

Our scheduling team can help you set up any screening exams that you’ve postponed as well as immediate medical imaging needs. Call our team at 919-232-4700.
