Excellence in Breast Cancer Care

An multidisciplinary team dedicated to you

At Rush, you may receive care through The Coleman Foundation Comprehensive Breast Cancer Clinic where you’ll meet with your breast cancer care team together in a single visit. Your team will include a breast surgeon, a radiation oncologist and a medical oncologist, as well as a nurse coordinator.

Experienced and comprehensive breast imaging

With one of the most experienced teams of breast imaging specialists in the Chicago area, Rush is designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology. We offer the full range of breast imaging options, including screening digital mammography, tomosynthesis (3-D mammogram), automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) and breast MRI. Of all breast cancers detected at screening, 85 to 90 percent are found at the earliest stages at Rush, which far exceeds national guidelines.

Breast cancer genetic testing and counseling

The Rush Inherited Susceptibility to Cancer (RISC) program specializes in genetic testing and counseling for women who have genetic mutations — such as BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations — that increase their risk of developing breast cancer.

"We get to know a patient by knowing who’s in their family, and who’s in their social support networks. And, over time, we get to establish that relationship, not only with the patient, but with their children or their parents or their nieces and nephews — whoever accompanies them to their visits. We really look at the whole patient and the different aspects of their breast cancer treatment."
