Dr. Kenneth Levey, founder of Maiden Lane Medical, says, “Every year, over 325,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, including early-stage and invasive forms of the disease. Over 41,000 women will die of breast cancer each year. With early diagnosis and rapid treatment, you increase your chances of surviving this prevalent women’s health issue. Mammograms are critical to diagnosing breast cancer in its early and more easily treated stages. It can also help in discovering other irregularities of the breasts such as having dense breasts.”

Maiden Lane Medical offers in-office mammography services for the convenience of their patients. Their advanced equipment can be used to provide digital, 3D mammograms. And advanced ultrasound services in a suite of services accredited by the American College of Radiologists. Mammography is a diagnostic imaging study that employs low-dose X-rays to capture pictures of the insides of the patient’s breasts. With the technologically advanced mammography equipment used at Maiden Lane Medical, the images obtained are more detailed, allowing the physicians to evaluate a more detailed view of the breast tissue for easier identification of any areas with calcification, or other abnormalities that could be signs of breast cancer.

After the mammogram, the fellowship-trained and board-certified radiologists at Maiden Lane Medical will read and interpret the mammogram and deliver quick results directly to the patient’s physician or gynecologist. This will avoid back-and-forth communications between an external radiology practice and the gynecologist in the event of abnormal results. Instead, the patient’s gynecologist would be able to take action right away to order more testing or other required next steps.

Dr. Kenneth Levey says, “Mammograms are the most effective way to detect breast cancer in its early stages. Our advanced technology can identify abnormal tissue and lumps that you can’t feel from the outside. Early detection increases your chances of successful treatment, as smaller tumors often require less invasive treatment. We offer state-of-the-art digital 3D mammography services including screening and diagnostic mammograms from our convenient, in-office accredited mammography suite. You don’t have to make multiple appointments to address your women’s health needs. The dual convenience of same-day well-woman exams and in-office mammography means no more missed appointments, extra time off work, or other inconveniences.”
