At Atrium Health, formerly Carolinas HealthCare System, we provide women and, though rare, men in our communities with the highest quality breast imaging services. We use advanced breast imaging procedures and technologies known to yield the most accurate clinical information, helping our doctors make timely diagnoses and better tailor screening and treatment plans. Mammography takes X-ray pictures of the breast.

Regular screening mammography can often detect breast cancer long before it can be felt. Digital mammography, used at The Breast Center, surpasses conventional X-ray film for detecting breast cancer. Digital images offer greater clarity and can be manipulated for the best vantage point.
A mammogram a combination of X-ray images of the breast is a routine part of a breast cancer screening program. Physicians agree that breast palpation programs physically checking for lumps are generally insufficient for early breast cancer detection. Breast self examination programs are also unreliable as a lesion can develop for years before it becomes palpable.
You may notice that a part of your breast feels different from the rest, being less "squishy" and more "dense". This can be a normal part of menstruation or breastfeeding. The thickening can be in the skin which is a sign of Inflammatory Breast Cancer or deeper in the breast.

The photographs included on this page are the results of reconstructive procedures performed by the surgeons at the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery. Left image: Symmastia developed after a bilateral mastectomy and silicone implant reconstruction. Right image: Corrective surgery involved removal of both implants and reconstructing the breasts using the SGAP flap procedure.
Radiation therapy is one of the key cancer treatment options. To avoid adverse effects in the healthy tissue, the treatment plan needs to be based on accurate anatomical models of the patient. In this work, an automatic segmentation solution for both female breasts and the heart is constructed using deep learning. Our newly developed deep neural networks perform better than the current state-of-the-art neural networks while improving inference speed by an order of magnitude.
