Breast Imaging

Breast Imaging Division Faculty

The University of Michigan Division of Breast Imaging (BI) represents a specialized group of clinical imaging services within the Department of Radiology. We perform more than 50,000 examinations every year.

Breast Imaging is part of the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center, which is a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), an alliance of the world's 24 leading cancer centers.

Mammography studies are performed at six sites, including the U-M Cancer Center and the U-M East Ann Arbor Health and Geriatrics Center, and four screening sites (Briarwood, Canton, Brighton, Livonia). We provide mammographic services to the Indian Health Service via mobile van in North and South Dakota.

State-of-the-art digital mammography units including DBT are used, as well as ultrasound breast scanners. We utilize 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) units. Image-guided procedures include stereotactic core needle biopsies, wire localizations, image-guided fine-needle aspirations, ultrasound-guided core biopsy and MRI guided breast biopsies.

The division consists of a recognized group of 11 distinguished radiologists involved in clinical care and research. There is a long-standing history of close collaboration with the multidisciplinary team at the U-M Breast Care Center (BCC) staffed by breast surgeons, pathologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and plastic surgeons.

The Breast Imaging Division also trains and teaches medical students, residents and fellows.
