The St. Vincent Healthcare Yellowstone Breast Center has been designated a "Breast Imaging Center of Excellence" by the American College of Radiology.
This signifies that the Yellowstone Breast Center meets the highest standards of the radiology profession. St. Vincent Healthcare is the only breast imaging center in Eastern Montana and all of Wyoming to hold this honor.
The ACR awards the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence to less than 270 of the more than 8,800 certified breast imaging centers in the United States.
Breast imaging services are fully accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy.
The center has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
St. Vincent Healthcare began using digital mammography in November 2007, adding to the comprehensive diagnostic services dedicated to women and the early detection of breast cancer.
