For early detection of breast cancer, regular screening mammograms for women over the age of 40 still remain the best option. But research shows that where you get your mammogram also makes a difference: A mammogram is only as good as the radiologist who analyzes or reads it. That’s why the Regenstein Breast Imaging Center at Rush is staffed by radiologists who specialize in breast imaging.
The center is actually two separate spaces with the Rush Professional Building: a screening center for women who need routine mammograms, and a diagnostic center for women who come in for follow-up or after a diagnosis of breast cancer. Having distinct screening and diagnostic suites allows us to better tailor our services and make your appointments as stress-free as possible. Both centers use the latest imaging technology, and both are designed for your convenience and comfort.
Rush offers a full range of treatments for breast cancer, from standard therapies to innovative treatment options, and new options are being explored every day.
Through our active research program, you may be eligible to enroll in one of our many breast cancer research studies. For more information about the trials we are currently offering, see our Cancer Clinical Trials page.
