Three Measures That Assure Accurate Biopsy Results.

 

1)  Shady Grove Radiology radiologists read a large volume of mammograms.  Research has proven that radiologists who read high volumes of mammograms are better at both detecting cancers and also deciding when a finding on a mammogram is not suspicious, reducing the rate of false positives.  We are regulated by MQSA, and our audit data prove that all of our radiologists that read mammography are well qualified to do so.

2)  All patients that come to our breast centers for biopsy have a thorough "second review" of their imaging by an expert breast radiologist to determine if the biopsy is truly necessary.

3)  We used a highly skilled team of pathologists with expertise in breast.  The ambiguity in diagnosis with respect to some forms atypia and low-grade DCIS is well recognized by breast health care providers. If there is any doubt on the part of the pathologists, the specimen is sent automatically for a second opinion to Johns Hopkins University. These three measures assure the most accurate results possible when a biopsy is recommended and performed by Shady Grove Radiology.
