Breast Evaluation and Treatment Program

Mammography Expertise at UMGCC

Summary: All mammograms performed at UMGCC are reviewed by a radiologist specifically trained in the subspecialty of mammography. This breast imaging expertise results in fewer false alarms and the best chance for early detection of problems.

Our breast imaging specialists are radiologists trained in the subspecialty of mammography, which means that they review only breast images. This is an important advantage, since an expert mammographer is experienced at identifying normal structures and subtle changes, as well as abnormalities that might otherwise be missed.

The result is that fewer women are needlessly alarmed by what are in fact normal breast tissues, and early stage problems can often be detected sooner. We also make sure that referring physicians receive timely reports of their patients' tests.

Other Breast Imaging Services Offered

In addition to routine screening and diagnostic mammograms, we also offer:

Our breast imaging specialists are part of the Breast Evaluation and Treatment Program team, which meets regularly to review patient cases, evaluate the best therapies available and plan a customized treatment regimen for each individual patient.

Whether you come for a mammogram as part of your normal breast health care, or have a referral from your doctor for evaluation of a specific breast problem, our Breast Center provides timely access to appointments and convenient parking at an accessible downtown location, close to the Inner Harbor, the Light Rail, and many Baltimore attractions.
