More babies are delivered at Northside Hospital than at any other community hospital in the country. In addition, more cases of breast cancer are diagnosed and treated at Northside Hospital than at any other hospital in Georgia. Like Northside Hospital, the physicians at Northside Radiology Associates, P.C. are dedicated to providing the best in health care for women. While all of our radiologists provide the highest quality of care to women in their area of specialty, we have a number of physicians who have chosen to specialize in Women’s Imaging and have pursued advanced education and training in the field.

We strive to bring to our patients the finest in medical imaging and interpretation and to provide a level of personal service not found elsewhere. Please feel free to contact our Director of Women’s Imaging, Dr. Lynn Baxter, or any of our Women’s Specialists to discuss questions you may have about our exams.

Northside Hospital now offers 3D mammography, a breakthrough technology in the diagnosis of breast cancer.

This recently FDA-approved technique, also known as “tomosynthesis,” produces three-dimensional views of the breasts. 3D tomosynthesis currently does not replace the traditional 2D mammographic views. It is a series of very low dose images that are viewed by a radiologist in a video-type format. With the addition of 3D tomosynthesis to the traditional mammogram, Northside Radiology Associates radiologists will be able to improve breast cancer detection while decreasing the number of patients we call back for additional testing.

The total x-ray dose for combined 2D and 3D mammography is less than the FDA mandated limits, and it is similar to conventional film-screen mammography. Since 3D tomosynthesis can markedly reduce the need for additional mammographic views, in some women the overall radiation dose will actually be decreased.

3D mammography is now available as a voluntary addition to traditional mammography at our Northside Hospital Breast Care Center in the Atlanta and Forsyth locations for patients undergoing both screening and diagnostic mammography.
