Breast Imaging

The University of Michigan Division of Breast Imaging (BI) represents a specialized group of clinical imaging services within the Department of Radiology. We perform more than 40,000 examinations every year.

Breast Imaging is part of the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center, which is a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), an alliance of the world's 21 leading cancer centers.

Mammography studies are performed at six sites, including the U-M Cancer Center and the U-M East Ann Arbor Health and Geriatrics Center, and four screening sites (Briarwood, Canton, Brighton, Livonia).

State-of-the-art film/screen and digital mammography units are used, as well as ultrasound breast scanners. There is also access to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) units. Image-guided procedures include stereotactic core needle biopsies performed on a dedicated unit, wire localizations, image-guided fine-needle aspirations, and ultrasound-guided core biopsy.

The division consists of a recognized group of 11 distinguished radiologists involved in clinical care and research. There is a long-standing history of close collaboration with the multidisciplinary team at the U-M Breast Care Center (BCC) staffed by breast surgeons, pathologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and plastic surgeons. 

The Breast Imaging Division also trains and teaches medical students, residents and fellows.
