Let's Beat Breast Cancer Together
The Breast Center at Barnabas Health Ambulatory Care Center, in Livingston, is one of the largest Breast Centers in the United States. Caring for more than 65,000 patients annually, the center provides a comprehensive range of preventive, diagnostic and treatment services providing a high level of individualized care from a multi-disciplinary highly qualified team experienced in treating breast-related issues.
Services provided at the Breast Center include a variety of screening and diagnostic procedures for detecting breast cancer and pinpointing other suspicious areas in the breast, including breast needle localization, mammography (fully digital tomosynthesis),breast MRI, stereotactic core biopsy, breast tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, ultrasound-guided cyst aspiration and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy.
Dedicated State-of-the-Art Breast MRI
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breast is a non-invasive test that uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed images of the structures within the breast. Breast MRIs are a critical tool in detecting or ruling out breast cancer, particularly for certain women at high risk for breast cancer or who have dense breasts.
The newly acquired breast MRI machine for the Breast Center will seamlessly integrate MRI scans into patient care by providing scans on the premises improving patient flow, reducing wait times and increasing diagnostic reporting capabilities.
Should cancer be detected, Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center together with Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, New Jersey’s only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, provides patients access to the most advanced diagnoses and treatment options for breast cancer including complex surgical procedures, sophisticated radiation therapy techniques, innovative clinical trials, immunotherapy, and precision medicine. Our multidisciplinary team of nationally renowned oncologists, nurses, oncology nurse navigators, and support professionals ensure a compassionate, comprehensive approach, creating an individualized treatment plan for each patient.
The Breast Center has recently been renovated to make the space more efficient, comfortable and patient-centered. A spa-like area where gowned patients can wait for results will be added, with chairs positioned for privacy and amenities including coffee, tea and light snacks. Further enhancing the patient experience, the registration area is expanding from six to 10 bays and the clinical space is now directly adjacent to reception.
Accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers
The Breast Center at the Barnabas Health Ambulatory Care Center is one of the few breast centers in New Jersey to receive accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), which requires a rigorous evaluation process and performance review.
Our NAPBC accreditation reflects the high standard of care we provide for patients with diseases of the breast, and our commitment to offering patients every advantage when it comes to breast care.
