Mammogram at ARA’s Breast Imaging Center – Austin Radiological Association
The clinic manager at the ARA Breast Imaging Center gives an overview of radiology for women at Austin Radiological Association. Radiological exams include mammograms, breast biopsies, breast ultrasounds, 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 Breast Imaging Center is in central Austin. ARA also has a Breast Imaging Center in Cedar Park and in Kyle.
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 dedicated to breast health and with years of training and experience in diagnosing breast cancer and other types of benign breast disease.
Studies have shown that women with no symptoms may have a better chance of being cured of breast cancer if it is detected on a mammogram before a breast lump is evident.
