Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
St. Peter's was the first center in the Capital Region to be named a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). This designation is given to imaging centers that have achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
The essence of the St. Peter’s Breast Center is its combination of prompt care, expertise, and the most modern, specialized breast-imaging technology, including 3D mammography.
At the center, we partner with patients and their physicians in the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of breast disease. The center is committed to empowering its patients, enabling them to participate in decisions about their care. Most importantly, our goal is to ensure that patients who entrust their care to St. Peter’s receive the highest level of care available to maintain a winning edge in the fight against breast disease.
Men and Breast Health
Although most breast health issues are related to women, it is important for men to realize that they, too, are vulnerable to breast disease. Men who experience any abnormal lumps, discharge or sensitivity in their breast should consult their physician immediately. Breast disease affects a much smaller percentage of men than women; however, awareness and early detection are the keys to fighting this disease.
