Early detection of breast cancer

Diagnostic Radiology

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and recent advances in medicine have allowed to reduce fatal outcome significantly.  In Germany, 48,000 women are diagnosed with the disease every year with 10 % being due to hereditary factors. The risk increases from the age of 40 onwards. 

We offer you the entire spectrum of state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures for the detection and clarification of benign and malignant diseases of the female and male breast. In order to detect a possible breast cancer at an early stage, we rely on a high level of expertise, many years of experience and the use of state-of-the-art equipment and appropriate examination procedures.

  • Ultrasound: The standard imaging procedure is performed directly on the breast by an experienced expert.
  • Low-dose Digital Mammography and Tomosynthesis: Most modern systems are used to evaluate breast tissue density and appearance, also over time. 
  • Breast MRI: As a non-radiation procedure, MRI of the breast provides highest accuracy in characterizing diseases. The examination will be performed on comfortable MRI scanners of the latest generation with a special breast examination device. During the examination, you will lie on your stomach and both breasts will be examined simultaneously.

In order to provide you with the best possible care, our physicians work closely with other specialists in radiotherapy, pathology and human genetics. Their expertise is also incorporated into the results of examinations and treatment planning according to the latest innovations and national and international guidelines.
