Multidisciplinary collaboration

Our team of breast radiologists and pathologists specializes in diagnosing breast cancer. Like our radiologists, our pathologists specialize exclusively in breast cancer, and their findings are critical to determining treatment. The proficiency of our radiologists and pathologists enables them to define the precise features of a patient's tumor so that our cancer care teams can create a personalized treatment plan for each patient.

Because we are an academic medical center, our patients benefit from collaboration among physicians. In addition to our breast imaging physicians, we have surgeons, pathologists and specialists in more than 200 fields. Their expertise may prove valuable in your diagnosis and recommended treatment plan.

Together, radiologists, pathologists, breast oncology surgeons, breast medical oncologists and radiation oncologists determine whether additional tests are needed for a definitive diagnosis. This multidisciplinary team meets in conference regularly to develop the best course of treatment based on your tumor, you and your needs.

Imaging clinical trials

As an academic medical center, you have access to a variety of clinical trials. This means you may benefit from the very latest advances in treatment. Clinical trials can provide patients with additional options for their condition. Knowledge gained through these studies helps improve care and treatment for patients everywhere.
