Radiology plays a critical role in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer
Every single mammogram image is read by a fellowship trained, board-certified radiologist specializing in breast health. Longmont United Hospital Women’s Imaging is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). ACR Accreditation is recognized as the gold standard of demonstrated safety standards and quality care in medical imaging.
Our breast surgeons specializes in a wide range of breast cancer surgeries and reconstruction. They work with a patient’s medical team and the patient and their family to tailor a treatment plan based on their wishes and particular diagnosis.
If you have a family history of cancer or have received a new cancer diagnosis you may have an identifiable hereditary cancer syndrome. A new technology called multigene panel testing simultaneously examines a number of different genes to look for potentially cancer-causing mutations, which can provide information to help you take action to prevent or stop cancer.
Medical oncology services are provided by our expert team located in the Medical Pavilion at Longmont United Hospital. They work closely with the Hope Cancer Care Center radiation therapy team, our team of surgeons, pathologists, diagnostic radiologists and support services to provide comprehensive treatment.
