You may experience some slight discomfort with your mammogram or needle biopsy (if required), however our team are skilled at minimising this, and will thoroughly guide you through what to expect in all procedures.
Our team of breast physicians, surgeons, radiologists and pathologists collaboratively reach a multidisciplinary diagnosis. In addition, all mammograms undergo a second read from a different radiologist to provide further quality assurance.
We provide a thorough breast assessment for patients of all risk profiles. Our service model is designed to ensure that patients only undertake the tests that are necessary to achieve a diagnosis. We commonly see high-risk or symptomatic patients who require more comprehensive assessment than can be offered at other imaging services.
Our service model is to provide all diagnostic testing to our patients in one day, with same day results. The costs associated with this model are comparable to those when you undertake testing at multiple sites over several days or weeks.
The procedures we perform on-site are non-surgical biopsies and cyst aspirations. We have breast surgeons who consult at our clinic, in addition to a network of breast surgeons throughout Sydney at major public and private hospitals to whom we refer. Our breast surgeons can consult with you about any surgery that may be required, and you can be booked for surgery at the hospital they attend.
Payment is made on the day of testing, and we accept all major credit cards. For patients who hold eligible Medicare, healthcare or veterans cards, rebates are claimed on the day and usually refunded into a nominated bank account within a week. An external fee (that is also eligible for a Medicare rebate) may apply from our pathology partner if biopsies are taken. This is often issued 5-7 working days after your appointment.
