Breast Imaging



Our full team of subspecialty-trained breast imaging radiologists provides cutting-edge knowledge and expertise to every patient. 

Our breast imaging radiologists and technologists understand the importance of dedication, compassion and expertise 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 in our care. Wake Radiology UNC REX is focused on equipping women and their referring providers with the most actionable and specific reports.

    Comprehensive Breast Exams

    The unique breadth and depth of Wake Radiology’s breast imaging expertise allows us to offer a full spectrum of breast imaging services, from conventional 2D and 3D mammography, breast ultrasound and breast MRI to three types of image-guided breast biopsy. All breast images are taken by certified technologists and interpreted by board-certified radiologists. In fact, Wake Radiology has a team of radiologists who have expertise in mammography.

    Our Quality Is Certified and Accredited

    Wake Radiology UNC REX is proud to have been continuously certified by the FDA and accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) since accreditations for mammography became mandatory in the early 1990s. We were also the Triangle’s first outpatient provider to earn the ACR’s Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) designation and continue to maintain that quality standard.

    PrintWake Radiology offers breast imaging services at many Triangle locations, and all services are interpreted by board-certified radiologists, many of whom are dedicated to breast imaging. Our offices are accredited by the ACR and have earned the ACR’s highest recognition as a BICOE.

    Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

    Wake Radiology is committed to breast cancer detection and is proud to be the first outpatient imaging provider in the Triangle to earn the American College of Radiology’s (ACR) prestigious Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) designation.

    Peer review evaluations by the ACR, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined that the Wake Radiology breast imaging centers have achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.

    Benefits of an ACR Center of Excellence

    • Excellence in Diagnostic Services in Addition to Mammography: Achieving BICOE status puts a gold star on not only a center’s mammography but other services as well. Breast ultrasound, ultrasound-guided breast biopsy and stereotactic breast biopsy are all accredited by the ACR under the Center of Excellence designation.
    • Additional Training: Radiologists, technologists and physicists all require additional training and education in accredited services through an ACR Center of Excellence. Enhanced training ensures employees are proficient in the most recent breast imaging developments. It guarantees that all radiologists are board-certified and have particular expertise in breast imaging. They are not just people who perform breast imaging once a week or month, but rather people who have dedicated themselves professionally to it.
    • Proven Commitment and Reputable Standard of Care: In the 1950s, women with breast cancer had as high a risk of death as people with lung cancer, but mammography and the science of breast imaging have reduced the death rate and saved women’s lives by detecting breast problems earlier. Wake Radiology’s BICOE status displays our commitment to fighting breast disease, a social cause and movement that has grown significantly. It demonstrates that a facility is performing at a high level and doing as well as possible for the benefit of every patient.

    Great mammogram experience! The staff was punctual and friendly – I had no wait. Tina was very attentive and checked in with me throughout the imaging process to make sure I was doing okay.
