Advanced Breast Cancer Diagnostics
The Breast Diagnostic Center provides some of the most accurate and least
invasive screening and diagnostic procedures available. These include:
All patients who undergo an advanced diagnostic procedure also receive
information on continuing breast health. If cancer is detected, a team
of health care professionals, including an oncologist, radiologist and
a Breast Health Navigator, will fully discuss the next steps in your individual
treatment and care.
Recognized as a Breast Center of Excellence
The Vasek and Anna Maria Polak Breast Diagnostic Center is fully accredited
by the American College of Surgeons and the
National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) and is held to the highest standards of care for patients with diseases
of the breast.
We are also recognized by the
American College of Radiology as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. To achieve this distinction,
the center undergoes continuous, rigorous reviews to demonstrate the highest
standards of quality assurance and accreditation in mammography, breast
ultrasound and stereotactic breast biopsy. Each of these three accreditations
requires all physicians, nurses, and technologists undergo extended specific
training, as well as continuing education.
In addition, the Breast Diagnostic Center is a member of the National Consortium
of Breast Centers, a non-profit organization of breast health care professionals
dedicated to the continued excellence and improvement of breast health
care. All of our Breast Diagnostic Center's are certified in Mammography
by The State of California, the FDA, and Accredited by the ACR. The Polak
Breast Diagnostic Center in Torrance is ACR-accredited in Stereotactic
Breast Biopsy and in Ultrasound/Ultrasound Breast Biopsies.
