The Indiana Breast Imaging Center is dedicated to providing women and men with the resources they need for the detection of breast cancer.
In addition to truly world-class physicians, nurses and technology, the Indiana Breast Center is a caring, positive environment, dedicated to compassion, clear communication and comprehensive patient support - including not only medical care, but also emotional support and education.
Breast cancer is a frightening diagnosis, but it's not the end of the story. Tremendous resources have been devoted to the development of new treatments and new therapies. Surgery, hormone therapy, chemotherapy and radiation are all possible treatments - and with new advancements, they can be more effective and have fewer side effects.
Early detection is key. According to the National Cancer Institute, when breast cancer is found early and still localized, the relative survival rate (measured at five years) is 97 percent.
Doctors and nurses at the Indiana Breast Center work with our patients to help them develop a regular breast-health routine including self examination and, at a certain age, regular mammograms and other imaging tests. We also offer a complete range of advanced detection and evaluation techniques, including minimally invasive biopsy of any suspect areas.
When, and How Often?
In general, we recommend that women age 40 and older have a mammogram every year. In some cases - based on family history, genetic screening or other reasons - your doctor may recommend starting earlier, or having them more frequently.
In any case, it's important to discuss mammography with your doctor. It's one of the best ways to ensure early detection - and early detection can be an important part of successful treatment.
Breast health requires a proactive approach to prevention and detection. In the event of a cancer diagnosis, it requires a wealth of support and resources, including advanced treatment.
The Indiana Breast Center offers a full spectrum of educational services designed to help women and men decrease their risk of developing breast cancer.
In the event of a cancer diagnosis, The Indiana Breast Center works with every patient to develop a customized plan of treatment. Depending on the case, that treatment plan might include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or a combination. Dr. Marylyn Rosencranz, breast imaging radiologist, will coordinate your treatment, working to reduce confusion, answer questions and make the process as simple as possible. Indiana Breast Center at Pinnacle Hospital also offers post-surgical breast reconstruction.
Indiana Breast Center offers cancer genetics consultations to certain patients who have a potential hereditary risk for breast cancer.
