MammographyAt the UTMB Breast Health and Imaging Center, a multi-disciplinary, highly skilled team of breast care specialists provides the most comprehensive and compassionate diagnostic and therapeutic service possible, all in one comfortable, convenient setting.

With recognized radiologists specializing in breast imaging, the most advanced technology and a focus on patient-centric, personalized care and communication, the Comprehensive Breast and Imaging Center is a valuable regional community resource.

At UTMB, patients receive comprehensive and compassionate care in an environment that values and offers the expertise of multiple health disciplines. We have a beautiful new facility that's designed around healing, and the latest and best technology.

No detail in your care is unimportant; patients can expect follow up on everything, and treatment is very comprehensive.

Our people and the approaches they employ are what make us truly special.

An individualized treatment plan is determined for each patient. At biweekly Multidisciplinary Breast Tumor Conferences, newly diagnosed breast cancer patient cases are evaluated and the best individualized treatment plan is determined for each patient. All of the physician specialists that are part of the diagnosis and treatment of patients participate actively. Radiologists, surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, and pathologists all are engaged in these patient-focused conferences.

NAPBC_Seal_07-2010UTMB's Breast Health and Imaging Center has earned a three-year, full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. Accreditation by the NAPBC, a program administered by the American College of Surgeons, is given only to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance.

During the survey process, a center must demonstrate compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women who are diagnosed with the full spectrum of breast disease. The standards include proficiency in the areas of center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement. A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease.

Receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center ensures that you as a a patient will have access to:

  • Comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services
  • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options
  • Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options

The NAPBC is a consortium of professional organizations dedicated to the improvement of the quality of care and monitoring of outcomes of patients with diseases of the breast. This mission is pursued through standard-setting, scientific validation and patient and professional education. Its board membership includes professionals from 15 national organizations that reflect the full spectrum of breast care.
