Does it really matter who's reading your mammogram?
General radiologists, who not only read mammograms films but all other types of x-rays, practice the vast majority of breast radiology in this country. Houston Breast Imaging (formerly Rose Imaging Specialists, P.A.) is a group of highly trained, dedicated breast radiologists that are nationally known and board certified. Their practice is to service only the needs of breast patients whether it might be an annual mammogram to a diagnostic breast procedure.
What sets us apart and makes us unique?
Our radiologists are breast-imaging specialists providing direct patient care. The radiologist performs all ultrasounds on the patient allowing an opportunity to communicate directly with the patient both during and after the time of examination. We believe in a specialized team approach; therefore, we interact closely with the referring physicians, breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, radiation therapist, breast pathologist, and the oncologist. All of these efforts result in better care for our patients. Houston Breast Imaging combine sophisticated, state-of-the-art equipment and excellent staff of breast specialists to provide an unsurpassed level of quality and reliability. Our experience and expertise provides you with accurate information, which relieves fears and helps patients make informed decisions. "Yes, we believe it does matter who reads your mammogram."
