The clinic manager at Women’s Imaging Center gives an overview of radiology for women at Austin Radiological Association. Radiological exams include mammograms, breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and more. ARA works hard to make exams comfortable, with private dressing rooms where patients can prepare for their exams, free coffee, warm robes and friendly and helpful staff ready to answer questions and assist with paperwork.
Austin Radiological Association’s original Women’s Imaging Center is in central Austin. ARA also has a Women’s Imaging Center on Parmer Lane.
Both centers feature digital mammography scanners which deliver high resolution, excellent quality radiographic images.
The American College of Radiology, the American Cancer Society and many other national and international organizations recommend that a woman begin annual screening mammography at age forty.
Austin Radiological Association has put together a dedicated team of breast imagers all of whom have had fifteen to twenty plus years of experience. ARA has doctors, x-ray technologists, and mammogram and ultrasound technologists who are dedicated to breast health and who have years of training and experience in diagnosing breast cancer and other types of benign breast disease.
Studies have shown that women who do not have any symptoms may have a better chance of being cured from breast cancer if it is detected on a mammogram before a breast lump is evident.
ARA continues to follow CDC guidelines in requiring employees and patients to wear masks at our imaging centers for the safety of all.
