At DuPage Medical Group we provide a comprehensive & compassionate approach to diagnose and treat a variety of breast-related concerns of women & men in our communities. It is an unsettling statistic: one in every eight women will develop breast cancer at some point in her life. Because a woman's best defense against breast cancer is early detection, it is our mission to combine state-of-the-art technology with the expertise of our breast imaging doctors to discover breast cancer when it is still in its early stages and more easily treated.
Mammography is an imaging tool used to screen for breast cancer. This technology uses compression and X-Rays to take images of your breast digitally. On the computer, your radiologist can closely examine the images by zooming in, adjusting the image brightness, or changing the contrast, making all areas of the breast easier to see. DMG also offers 3D mammography, where a 3D scan allows your radiologist to view your breast tissue one layer at a time. Rather than one flat, dense image, your radiologist can examine your breast tissue in one millimeter layers, making it easier to interpret any abnormalities.
DuPage Medical Group is fully equipped with the latest technology, offering the full range of breast cancer screening procedures and services: screening and diagnostic 3D mammography, digital 2D mammography, breast ultrasound and breast MRI. Core biopsies are performed under ultrasound, stereotactic and MRI guidance.
Select DMG Radiology sites have national accreditation from the American College of Radiology, including distinction as a Breast Care Center of Excellence. This distinction is only awarded to an elite group of healthcare facilities that offer the latest, state-of-the-art digital technology for breast cancer detection.
