Shady Grove Radiology in Montgomery County, Maryland, has added a new center specifically for breast cancer screening and diagnosis. Shady Grove Breast Center in Rockville is the group's fifth location.
According to Shady Grove Radiology, the center brings personalized medicine to breast imaging. Patients are led through a screening process customized to their individual health needs. Every patient first receives an assessment of her lifetime risk for developing breast cancer. She then undergoes exams tailored to her unique breast cancer risk, which may include advanced screening tests for early detection.
This coordinated approach gives patients access to digital mammograms (available at five facilities across Montgomery County), as well as specialized services like breast ultrasound, breast MRI and minimally invasive biopsies available at the breast center. Patients can also receive genetic testing and step-by-step guidance for treatment of benign and malignant breast disease.
The new Shady Grove Breast Center is located at 9711 Medical Center Drive, Suite 201, in Rockville, Maryland, on the campus of Shady Grove Adventist Hospital. The breast center complements the other four Shady Grove Radiology locations throughout Montgomery County that offer mammography: Germantown Road in Germantown, Key West Avenue in Rockville, Montgomery Village Avenue in Montgomery Village, and Edmonston Drive in Rockville.
Sonya Kella, M.D., will serve as Shady Grove Breast Center's medical director.
