The breast imaging program at UTMB Health has built a reputation for providing excellent and compassionate care to breast cancer patients throughout the region. The hard work and dedication of the breast imaging team has resulted in national recognition. The program has been designated a “Center of Excellence” by the American College of Radiology. UTMB was one of the initial two programs in the Houston area to receive this prestigious honor, and one of the first in Texas to receive the designation.

Receiving care at an ACR-accredited center ensures that a patient will have access to:

  • Fully accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy and breast ultrasound
  • Equipped with state-of-the-art imaging equipment for mammography, breast ultrasonography, breast MRI, and featuring the ability to perform image guided core needle biopsies using mammography, ultrasound, or MRI–whichever is needed to give the most accurate results and is easiest on the patient
  • Comprised of breast imaging physicians who are experts in their field, and mammography technologists and quality assurance technologists with registries in their fields.
