AdventHealth Wesley Chapel Offering Innovative Technology to Provide Safer, More Convenient Options for Breast Care Patients

Wesley Chapel, FL – AdventHealth Wesley Chapel is now offering multiple innovative breast health advances to detect breast cancer and provide safer, convenient options for patients who require treatment. The hospital is now offering Contrast Enhanced Mammography and SCOUT® Wire-Free Radar Breast Localization System.Contrast enhanced mammography is used to detect tumors in dense breasts that may not be visible on a traditional mammogram and it is an alternative for breast care patients who are unable to undergo an MRI. SCOUT® is a new, more comfortable and convenient surgical option for women awaiting breast cancer surgery.

 

“AdventHealth Wesley Chapel has created a niche for providing high quality breast care services in a unique way that shows both compassion and convenience during what can be a very high stress time in someone’s health journey,” said Erik Wangsness, president and CEO of AdventHealth Wesley Chapel. “As we continue to expand our services to prevent, diagnose and treat our patients, we remain committed to having the most advanced medical technology and the best doctors possible.”

 

Contrast enhanced mammography uses an injection into the vein to enhance the ability to see abnormal breast tissue on mammograms. These images provide greater detail when necessary to help care teams diagnose potential problems.

 

SCOUT® technology works by placing a tiny device about the size of a grain of rice, called a reflector, into the tumor at the patient’s convenience before the day of breast surgery. This allows doctors to precisely locate and remove cancerous tissue during a lumpectomy or surgical biopsy procedure. SCOUT® is an alternative to the traditional process which requires marking tumors with a hooked wire inserted into the breast – which sticks out and causes patients to be restricted in movement.

 

“We are fortunate to offer the community the latest technological advancements in breast imaging and breast cancer surgery,” said Dr. Jahnavi Pastore, Director of Breast Imaging at AdventHealth Wesley Chapel. “From detection to treatment, we are committed to providing the best possible breast health care experience to our patients."

 

AdventHealth Wesley Chapel is home to Inspiration Place which is a one of a kind comprehensive women’s health center fully dedicated to serving women of all ages and stages of life. Additionally, the hospital has partnered with Moffitt Cancer Center to provide additional outpatient cancer services to patients needing treatment.
