Anne C. Pappas Center for Breast Imaging
About the Anne C. Pappas Center for Breast Imaging
Our team of experts specializes in breast imaging to provide the most advanced breast care available. Your examination is performed by experienced mammography and ultrasound technologists, and interpreted by our board-certified, breast fellowship-trained, highly experienced, specialized radiologists—all of whom put your care and comfort first.
The Anne C. Pappas Center for Breast Imaging at Rhode Island Hospital has earned the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation from the American College of Radiology. The designation requires accreditation in all areas of breast imaging, including mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and breast biopsy. It reflects our commitment to providing the highest levels of care and our dedication to improving women’s health. In addition to achieving state-of-the art clinical care, our radiologists are nationally recognized leaders through their research and their work in academic medicine.
The Anne C. Pappas Center offers a new tool: a small, inert marker that can be placed in breast tissue. The Magseed marker identifies tissue flagged during an imaging exam. Patients don't feel the marker and can go about their usual routines. The Magseed can reduce the number of visits to the hospital as well as eliminate delays to the operating room, if surgery is needed.
