A highly specialised Digital Breast Imaging centre has been set up at Maroondah Hospital focusing on assessment and follow-up of breast disease. The dedicated, experienced and empathic staff assist with stereotactic biopsy and vacuum-assisted biopsy/mammotome biopsy in addition to the diagnostic mammography. We are one of the few centres that do not require the patient to stand during a mammographic biopsy (prone table).
Our newly installed digital system utilises the new diagnositic advances of Tomosynthesis - we are the first site to be able to offer this in the state, and only the second in the country (click here for more information)
Complimentary images are often provided with ultrasound at the same appointment. Available at Maroondah Hospital
