Centra's team of Caregivers is dedicated to providing the most advanced, personalized care.

Our experts' services include the following:

Stereotactic-guided and ultrasound-guided breast biopsies
A procedure during which breast tissue samples are removed from an area that appears abnormal and evaluated by a pathologist to determine if the cells are cancerous or benign. We offer several types of breast biopsies using imaging techniques.

3D Mammography
This type of imaging revolutionizes how breast cancer is detected by producing standard 2D views while also allowing breast tissue examination by layer. This advanced technology offers our patients greater accuracy, earlier detection and up to 40% fewer recalls for additional testing. 

Breast reconstruction and plastic surgery
Centra offers a full spectrum of reconstructive options for those who have undergone a mastectomy. Our surgeons are performing the most advanced procedures that combine the best aspects of standard implant techniques.

Breast MRI
This type of scan examines dense breast tissue, scar tissue at a lumpectomy site and any breast abnormalities. It also helps determine if breast disease has spread and evaluates breast implants for leakage or rupture. It is a screening tool for women with calculated increased risk for developing breast cancer in their lifetime or for those who are genetically predisposed to carry the breast cancer genes BRCA1 and 2. 

High resolution breast ultrasound
Using high-frequency sound waves, high resolution breast ultrasound detects abnormalities to determine whether tissue is a benign cyst or a potentially cancerous lump. Ultrasounds may detect problems that a mammogram does not identify.

ACR Breast Center of Excellence

A reputation of excellence

Our breast centers are nationally recognized as Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR) in addition to accredited by the ACR, the Commission on Cancer and the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. Our mammography and breast imaging services have been recognized for meeting the highest level of image quality and patient safety. 

Advanced imaging technology

When it’s time to receive your annual mammogram, we want your experience to be as worry free as possible. The digital mammograms we utilize offer advantages for detecting breast cancer, especially in women younger than 50, women who are perimenopausal and women who have dense breast tissue, because of the built-in computer-aided detection (CAD) technology that flags abnormalities and acts a second set of eyes to the radiologist.
