Fully accredited services include: mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI, MRI-guided breast biopsies, as well as breast ultrasound and ultrasound guided breast biopsy.

The Center achieved high marks in peer reviews of their image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.

The Breast Center at St. Mary's is thought of as a ‘center without walls', featuring multifaceted professionals that are ‘focused on the prevention, early detection and prompt treatment of breast diseases.'

This new designation is in addition to the accreditation the center has in Mammography, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
