The Breast Imaging Unit at Hillel Yaffe Medical Center is engaged in early detection of breast cancer, through the use of several forms of imaging - some of the most advanced and innovative in the field, depending on what is necessary: digital mammography, including tomosynthesis for screening and diagnosis, ultrasound, ultrasound-guided biopsy and mammography with tomosynthesis, marking prior to surgery, placement of clips prior to chemotherapy and more.
The unit uses the most advanced and innovative equipment, some of which is only available at very few large centers in Israel (such as mammography with tomosynthesis and tomosynthesis-guided biopsy). In some cases, it is the only center in Israel with the equipment (automatic robotic ultrasound to scan the entire volume of the breast).
The Breast Imaging Unit is located in Inpatient Building B (new), on Floor -1.
It is open Sunday-Thursday, from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Receipt of the service is contingent upon a referral from the attending physician, breast surgeon or gynecologist and a letter of financial undertaking from your medical insurer.
