Cutting-edge breast imaging and comprehensive care

When it comes to breast imaging and comprehensive care, one facility in South Africa stands out from the rest. The Parklane Women’s Imaging Centre has achieved a significant milestone by becoming the first Breast Imaging Centre of Excellence in Africa, accredited by the prestigious American College of Radiologists (ACR).

The ACR accreditation is a testament to the center’s commitment to excellence and the highest standards of breast imaging. Parklane Women’s Imaging Centre is accredited for a range of services including mammography, stereotactic biopsy, breast ultrasound and breast MRI. Being the only unit in South Africa with this accreditation speaks volumes about its expertise and dedication to providing exceptional care.

The centre operates as part of a multidisciplinary breast cancer team, comprising breast surgeons, reconstructive surgeons, oncologists, pathologists and radiologists. This collaborative approach ensures patients diagnosed with breast cancer receive a comprehensive evaluation and personalised treatment plan. By working closely together, these specialists can provide the best possible care and support throughout the patient’s journey.

State-of-the-art imaging equipment is utilised to achieve accurate and detailed results. The advanced technology includes tomosynthesis (3D) mammography, high-resolution ultrasound with elastography, and breast MRI. These cutting-edge tools enable the radiologists to capture precise images, detect subtle abnormalities, and provide early and accurate diagnoses.

In addition to imaging, the centre also offers a range of interventional procedures. With expertise in biopsies and localisation techniques, it can perform guided procedures using ultrasound, stereotactic/tomosynthesis mammography or MRI. This comprehensive approach ensures patients receive timely and precise interventions when needed.

Located in the Women and Wellness Centre, conveniently situated across the road from Netcare Park Lane Hospital in Parktown, Johannesburg, the Parklane Women’s Imaging Centre provides a modern and comfortable environment. The outpatient department is designed to create a welcoming and soothing atmosphere, contributing to a positive patient experience.

From initial screening to diagnosis, treatment and follow-up, the centre is dedicated to ensuring the best possible outcomes for individuals seeking breast imaging services. By combining expertise, state-of-the-art equipment and a patient-centred approach, Parklane Women’s Imaging Centre continues to be at the forefront of breast healthcare in South Africa.
