Advanced Breast Imaging in Tampa Bay

The Shimberg Breast Center at St. Joseph's Hospital-South offers the latest and most sophisticated breast imaging services, including:

  • Digital mammograms (diagnostic and screening)
  • "Low Dose" 3D Tomosynthesis mammography
  • Breast MRI
  • Breast ultrasound
  • Image guided biopsies

In the event that a mammogram comes back with an abnormality on the image, you should know that 80 percent of irregularities found on a mammogram are not cancerous. However, for your safety, it is imperative that you have the abnormality looked at again—usually with a few more mammogram images followed by a breast ultrasound if necessary. Following the ultrasound, your radiologist may recommend a breast biopsy.

Schedule your screening mammogram today.

Minimally Invasive Breast Biopsies

At The Shimberg Breast Center, we offer minimally invasive breast biopsies including:

  • Stereotactic ultrasound-guided biopsy - through a small incision in the breast, the doctor will use a needle or vacuum-powered device to remove a sample of breast tissue from the area that has been identified as suspicious by a mammogram
  • MRI-guided breast biopsy - similar to a stereotactic ultrasound-guided biopsy, the are in question is identified by the use of MRI images instead of a mammogram

For a physician referral, please call (813) 644-6677. You can also take our free online breast cancer risk assessment.
