Ultrasound imaging uses high frequency sound waves to view inside the body. The images are captured in real-time and can show doctors the movement of the body’s internal organs and blood flows through the blood vessels.
The Laszlo Tabar Breast Centre offers the most comprehensive breast ultrasound service on the Sunshine Coast, utilising 3-D imaging for lesion characterisation. It provides diagnostic breast ultrasound, fine-needle aspiration biopsy and ultrasound guided core biopsy.
Our radiologist interprets your ultrasound images and provides your doctor with a comprehensive report of the examination.
If a breast biopsy is required, our focus is on providing special techniques to minimise pain and anxiety; it is all part of our commitment to providing a caring patient environment. A cytologist is always on site for all fine-needle aspiration biopsies
Endorsed by Prof. László Tabár
Our breast MRI services are provided by Dr Sean O’Connor, the only radiologist on the Sunshine Coast with a fellowship in Women’s Imaging and one of the most experienced MRI readers in Queensland. Dr Connor trained under the guidance of Professor László Tabár, whose pioneering research has laid the foundation for early detection through modern mammographic screening.
Breast MRIs take place in the László Tabár Breast Centre at Specialist Women’s Imaging Centre, one of only two clinics in the world to be endorsed by Professor László Tabár. The Centre utilises the highly advanced GE Senographe DS Digital Mammography machine, which provides the lowest dose mammography available.
