Breast Imaging

Breast imaging typically consists of mammography, ultrasound, and MRI. Mammography is the "gold standard" for screening and detecting breast cancer. At Mid-Delaware Imaging, our mammography units are both MQSA certified and ACR accredited. Digital mammography uses low-dose X-rays to capture images of the breast to look for abnormalities in the breast tissue that may represent cancer. Benefits include better imaging of dense breast tissue and the chest wall, shorter exam times, and lower radiation dose.

In addition, MDI is proud to announce that we are the first facility in Dover to offer 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis). This new technology detects up to 40% more invasive cancers and 25% more breast cancers than standard 2D digital mammography. This new technology is gaining traction and looks to be standard of care in the near future. We are proud to offer this new tool for breast cancer detection to our community.

Ultrasound is a simple, safe, painless diagnostic procedure that utilizes high-frequency sound waves to image the breast. This modality is typically used to differentiate cystic (fluid filled) lesions from solid tumors. Mid-Delaware Imaging's ultrasound department is accredited by the American College of Radiology and only employs sonographers who are board certified.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the safest and accurate diagnostic imaging studies available. Using a strong magnetic field, radiofrequency waves and an advanced image processing computer, high resolution images of the breasts are obtained. A breast MRI is often performed for patients who have had an abnormal mammogram, a strong family history of breast cancer, discovered a palpable mass or have breast implants that interfere with receiving a standard mammogram. A bilateral MRI breast study is indicated for mastectomy patients to allow the radiologist to evaluate the lymph nodes, chest wall, residual tissue and post surgical changes.
