Breast cancer is the number one cancer in women. Breast cancer is both life threatening and a life changer. However, when breast cancer is detected in its early stages, chances of surviving the disease are greatly improved. There are steps that women can take to detect breast cancer early while the prognosis can still be favorable. Screening tests can detect breast cancer early, when it’s most treatable.
The McLaren Macomb Breast Center is committed to providing the highest degree of breast health care for our patients. As strong advocates for women’s health, the McLaren Macomb Breast Center’s experienced team of physicians and staff understands women’s anxieties about their breast health. The team encourages women to learn their risk for breast cancer, practice preventive measures and live a healthy lifestyle. The center was designed by women for women, and is equipped with state-of-the-art imaging technology featuring:
Digital Mammography – This low dose x-ray imaging exam is used to obtain accurate images of the breasts, while significantly improving early cancer detection.
Other diagnostic services (may vary by location) include:
- Breast ultrasound
- Minimally invasive breast biopsy
- Interventional breast procedures
- MRI Breast Imaging and biopsies
- Bone density screening (DXA Scan)
- Fracture risk assessment (FRAX)
- Intervertebral fracture assessment

Yearly screenings are recommended for all women over 40.
Test Results and Reporting - All of the testing procedures performed at the breast center and affiliated diagnostic centers are interpreted by a board-certified radiologist. A consultation session with the radiologist is provided to any woman undergoing a diagnostic evaluation. A report will be sent to the referring physician who will follow-up with the patient to discuss their test results.
Coordination of Care - We also provide coordination of care for patients undergoing diagnostic evaluations and breast biopsies. Patients diagnosed with cancer are referred to our Ted B. Wahby Cancer Center where they are provided with the latest treatment options and personalized follow-up care.
