The technologists are all registered or certified technologists with thorough knowledge of the latest equipment. Our Mammography program follows all mandated guidelines set by the NYS Department of Health and the FDA. It is also an A.C.R. accredited facility and all technologists are certified mammographers. We operate an in-house Transcription Service allowing for fast turnover of radiology reports. We also are a provider for most major insurance companies.
The Huntington Medical Group department of Radiology takes pride in the quality of our breast imaging modalities, which are all ACR accredited. We perform Digital Mammography for screening and diagnostic exams. Breast ultrasound is also performed as a supplemental exam to mammography, and for guidance in breast biopsies. Breast MRI is now available as screening test for high risk patients and for diagnostic workups for breast cancer. We also can perform MRI guided breast biopsies. Below are the American Cancer Society guidelines for breast cancer screening and the link to ACS guidelines for breast MRI.

Breast Cancer Screening Guidelines
- Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health.
- Clinical breast exam (CBE) should be part of a periodic health exam, about every 3 years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women 40 and over.
- Women should know how their breasts normally feel and report any breast change promptly to their health care providers. Breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for women starting in their 20s.
- Women at high risk (greater than 20% lifetime risk) should get an MRI and a mammogram every year. Women at moderately increased risk (15% to 20% lifetime risk) should talk with their doctors about the benefits and limitations of adding MRI screening to their yearly mammogram. Yearly MRI screening is not recommended for women whose lifetime risk of breast cancer is less than 15%.
Our Department has a state of the art Spiral C.T. machine with 3-D imaging and lung screening capabilities.
We also have a High field MRI (1.5 Tesla) Short Bore, capable of fast multi-type scanning, including breast MRI and MRI guided breast biopsies.
