Access to New Mammography
Technology is a Must
In the November 10th 2013 issue of
the Santa Barbara News Press, Pueblo Radiology affiliate Dr. Judy Dean of Santa
Barbara Women’s Imaging
Center, demonstrates the
benefits of utilizing the most innovative advancement in detecting breast
cancer, 3D mammography.
3D Mammography offers the most accurate detection of breast cancer, ultimately reducing the costs of follow up exams and cancer treatment since it can be detected earlier. However, certain health care payers, notably Medicare and private insurers do not cover the cost of what was named "one of the top medical innovations in 2013." But why?

Pueblo Radiology and Judy Dean M.D. Affiliation
On January 1, 2013 Dr. Judy Dean and Pueblo Radiology affiliated and created the Santa Barbara Woman's Imaging Center, located at Dr. Dean's current office at 1525 State Street.
Our first project is bringing breast tomosynthesis to the central coast. This cutting-edge technology promises to improve mammographic accuracy in detecting breast disease while reducing the number of callback examinations. From the woman’s perspective, the exam is similar to a regular mammogram. However, the resulting images are no longer in 2D, but instead a 3D volume of the breast which aids the radiologist in evaluating the overlapping and complex structures of the breast, especially in the presence of dense breast tissue.
Other services at the center include DEXA for bone density assessment and breast ultrasound. Breast ultrasound includes whole breast screening in addition to localized and focused scanning for areas of concern. For patients needing breast biopsy services, our office will continue to offer stereotactic and ultrasound-guided biopsies and aspirations.
Breast MRI imaging and biopsy and wire placement / localization examinations will be handled at our main office at 2320 Bath Street. Additionally, our Bath Street location will continue to provide screening and diagnostic breast imaging, breast ultrasound, and breast biopsy / aspiration services.
We encourage you to call and schedule your next appointment at one of our two offices. Our goal is to exceed your expectations in a professional, pleasant, and discreet office environment.
