A Leader in Breast Imaging
St. Joseph’s Health Centre is a leader in breast imaging, with thousands of women coming here to receive mammograms.
Currently, women need to go to one area for breast imaging and a separate area of the hospital for a biopsy. The time between a getting mammogram and receiving a treatment plan is roughly six to nine weeks.
