NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). It is now one of only a handful of Centers of Excellence in women’s imaging in all of Westchester County. By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy). The Women’s Imaging Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence, located within the Radiology department, is also a warm and inviting space. Female patients can relax in their own waiting area while they prepare for a procedure. And, the Women's Imaging Center has its own private dressing rooms with lockers to help make your visit more comfortable.
The Center offers a variety of Radiological services including Digital Mammography with Computer Assisted Device (CAD); Breast and Ob/Gyn Ultrasound; Bone Density testing; and Digital Stereotactic Biopsy. In addition, Lawrence has trained technologists and board-certified Radiologists on staff to read patients' images.
At NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital, the Women's Imaging Center promises to reduce waiting times and provide patients with more access to Radiologists and their findings. Also, staff will soon be able to perform breast MRI and MRI guided breast biopsies.
