Patient Information

Women are empowered to make their own decisions when it comes to their breast health. This includes the right to choose your own imaging provider.

There are many places where you can have a breast imaging test: a hospital, an outpatient center, and in some cases, your doctor’s office. But there are real differences between mammography providers—both in the equipment used for your test and the experience and training of the doctors who perform and interpret your test results. Research shows that the experience of the radiologist is the most critical factor in ensuring the most accurate results.*

Nobody wants to find out they have breast cancer. But if they do, they want to start treating it as soon as possible, so that they can beat the disease and get back to their normal life.

At Austin Breast Imaging, our services are designed so that you can achieve an accurate diagnosis without having to return over and over, for test after test. Our approach can reduce the time-to-treatment by as much as 50%. What’s more, our efficient testing protocols save significant cost—which can make a big difference on your out-of-pocket costs related to insurance deductibles and co-pays.
