DIGITAL BREAST TOMOSYNTHESIS

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis or “3D” mammography is a new type of digital x-ray mammogram that creates 2D and 3D-like pictures of the breasts. This tool improves the ability of mammography to detect early breast cancers and decreases the number of women “called back” for additional tests for findings that are not cancers.


Digital mammography can legally be performed only in facilities that are certified, such as the Diagnostic Breast Center.

BREAST ULTRASOUND

Breast ultrasound, also known as sonography or ultrasonography, is frequently used to evaluate breast abnormalities that are found with screening or diagnostic mammography or during a physician-performed clinical breast exam. Ultrasound allows significant freedom in obtaining images of the breast from almost any orientation. Ultrasound is excellent at imaging cysts, which are round, fluid-filled, pockets inside the breast. Additionally, ultrasound can often quickly determine if a suspicious area is in fact a cyst (almost always benign) or an increased density of solid tissue (dense mass), which may require a biopsy to determine if it is malignant (cancerous).

Dr. Kubek personally performs all of the ultrasound studies herself so that she, as the interpreting radiologist , can discuss all of the findings with each patient.

She is board certified in Diagnostic Radiology and completed a Fellowship in Breast Imaging. Her office is a FDA Certified Mammography Facility, and it is accredited by the American College of Radiology. Dr. Kubek is a member of the Society of Breast Imaging, the Pennsylvania Radiologic Society, and she serves on the board of BreastCancer.Org. She was elected as one of the Top Doctors 2020 by her peers.


Dr. Kubek sees approximately 7,000 women annually, but more importantly, she speaks to every patient before they leave her office. She has built her practice on the belief that the most important role that she as a physician can play is as an educator and advocate for her patients. She will see any patient with a breast concern immediately and she will arrange follow up care and surgical evaluation if necessary. Dr. Kubek personally performs all of the ultrasound studies herself so that she, as the interpreting radiologist, can discuss all of the information with each patient.
