The Breast Center at MDI Hospital is Downeast Maine’s only Breast Imaging Center of Excellence and one of only six in the State of Maine. To earn this prestigious designation, our team has undergone rigorous breast imaging programs and performed at the highest possible standards as defined by the American College of Radiology.
In addition to digital mammography, the Center of Excellence status puts a gold star on other types of imaging procedures including breast ultrasound, ultrasound-guided biopsy and stereotactic breast biopsy. In each of these procedures, our team has undergone additional training and education to ensure they are proficient in the most recent developments.
What most women will say that sets The Breast Center at MDI Hospital apart is the way they are cared for from the moment they walk through the door until the moment they leave. Most say they feel more like a guest than a patient because of the calm and inviting atmosphere. At The Breast Center at MDI Hospital breast exams are performed by MammaCare trained and certified nurses. This evidence-based training was supported by the National Cancer Institute and is considered the gold standard to optimize the tactile skills needed to detect suspicious lesions from normal breast tissue.
