More than 180,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year, and one in eight women will have breast cancer during her lifetime. To ensure optimum breast health, women need to perform monthly breast self-exams and receive regular diagnostic examinations.

No place offers a more comfortable, convenient setting for breast care than Baylor St. Luke's Women' s Center, located on the 10th floor of The Quinn Medical Tower  (view map).  The American College of Radiology recently recognized the center as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence – the first in Houston to receive this honor.

This coveted designation assures women that the center’s personnel are well-qualified through education and certification to perform and interpret medical images and administer radiation therapy treatments. Technologists on staff are certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (AART). Physicians who interpret the mammograms are radiologists certified by the American Board of Radiology.

The Center of Excellence also signifies that the equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment women receive and that the facility meets or exceeds quality and safety guidelines.

Services provided by skilled physicians and technicians include:

  • digital mammography
  • breast MRI with biopsy capabilities
  • breast ultrasound
  • stereotactic and ultrasound-guided needle biopsy
