Breast Cancer Services
Known for skill and compassion, Florida Hospital offers the following technology to ensure that your breast cancer testing and treatment is a success:
Florida Hospital's premier computerized mammography technologies enhances the mammography image quality and sensitivity so the radiologist can more easily discern the subtle information of the mammogram, especially in dense breast tissue areas. The technology also decreases the radiation dose of the mammogram.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET-CT)
PET-CT imaging can often detect advanced breast cancer more accurately than conventional imaging. PET-CT scans for staging and restaging of patients with breast cancer and determines how they are responding to treatment. In breast cancer, PET-CT scanning is complementary, not an alternative to mammography.
Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
This procedure allows surgeons to determine which lymph nodes are most susceptible to cancer and remove only those nodes. If the removed nodes contain cancer, the remaining lymph nodes are removed. The procedure often spares patients of the unnecessary removal of lymph nodes, making surgery less physically traumatic.
When it comes to breast cancer, you want the best care behind you. Florida Hospital provides an array of treatments and procedures designed to provide you with the breast care you need to beat the odds and prevent it from reoccurring in your body.
