The women’s imaging division, the largest subspecialty division within the department, has two sections—breast imaging and diagnostic imaging, both based at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC. Magee-Womens has nationally recognized clinical programs in breast and gynecological cancers and was one of the original recipients of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ award as a ‘National Centers of Excellence in Women’s Health.’ The hospital’s prestigious reputation draws patients from all over the region.
The breast imaging section performs a variety of procedures, including digital mammography (including computer aided detection), sonography, image-guided breast biopsy, needle localization, ductography, and breast MR. A national leader in breast imaging, Magee-Womens was the first hospital in the nation to install a digital mammography system in 2000 and one of the first to perform MRI-guided, vacuum–assisted biopsies in 2005. The diagnostic imaging section provides a complete range of diagnostic and interventional procedures related to gynecologic oncology, infertility, and pregnancy-related complications.
While the division is housed at Magee, service is also provided at UPMC Shadyside and UPMC Hillman Cancer Center and at Magee Womancare Centers throughout the Pittsburgh region.
