Wire-Free, Breast Tumor Localization
A common approach to localizing, or marking, a breast tumor is to place a wire in your breast to help the surgeon find it during surgery. Work with us for superior wire-free breast tumor localization.
Prior to your surgery at Nash, days or weeks before, you’ll have a tiny reflective marker placed in your breast where the abnormal tissue is. Your surgeon will use advanced wire-free radar localization technology to locate and remove the tumor and reflector. You’ll benefit from precise tumor detection and a decreased chance of needing another surgery with this improved method.
Sensitive Care From a Professional Team
Rely on our expert team of board-certified radiologists, registered mammography technologists, and registered breast sonographers. The Nash Breast Care Center has the latest technology to get the best possible images from your tests. Your Nash breast care team will focus on putting you at ease and keeping you informed about your screening and imaging tests and results.
Compassionate & Prompt Follow-Up
If you need a follow-up diagnostic mammogram or breast ultrasound, you may feel anxious about the outcome. We understand waiting for your results can be stressful, that’s why a radiologist will discuss the findings with you right after your exam.
When your radiologist recommends a breast biopsy based on your results, our team will schedule it for you right away. Expect us to deliver biopsy results to you and your referring doctor within 48 hours of your test.
