The division of women's imaging in the department of radiology at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville is dedicated to providing high quality imaging and expertise in the screening and diagnosis of breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common non-skin cancer of women in the U.S. and worldwide.

We provide state-of-the-art imaging that includes 2D and 3D digital mammography, breast ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), image guided biopsies, I-125 seed localization for breast malignancies and bone densitometry (DEXA scans). Our division is comprised of dedicated breast imaging faculty who interpret the exams and perform all image-guided biopsies. Imaging examinations are interpreted through an advanced picture-archiving communication system (Visage PACS).

Our breast imaging radiologists provide services in three dedicated breast imaging centers across Jacksonville. All of the imaging services and biopsy procedures are provided in these locations —downtown campus on 8th Street in Tower II, Emerson Street campus and at UF Health North campus.

At UF Health Jacksonville, we perform our exams using the latest technology. The screening mammograms are performed using a digital breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography) technique for higher sensitivity and accuracy. Other on-site equipment includes ultrasound scanners, multiple 3.0 T, 1.5 T and 1.2 T MRI units, DEXA scanners and advanced equipment for biopsies.

The division of women’s imaging provides a well-structured educational program for medical students, residents and fellows. The program includes daily teaching at the workstation, didactic conferences and weekly multidisciplinary breast conferences with educational materials provided at all levels.
