For Referring Doctors

At the St Vincent’s Northside Breast Health Centre, we offer routine breast screening and diagnostic assessment for all diseases of the breast.

The centre is led by a multidisciplinary team of breast experts, including Radiologists, Sonographers, Radiographers, Breast Physicians, Breast Care Nurses, Pathologists, Breast Surgeons, Medical and Radiation Oncologists, Oncology Nurses, Dietitians, Physiotherapists and Spiritual Care Practitoners.

List of services:

  • Breast examinations, mammography and ultrasound
  • Needle biopsies including cyst aspiration, fine needle, core and vacuum assisted biopsies
  • Pre-operative localisation (performed under ultrasound or tomographic control for patients undergoing breast surgery)
  • Breast-enabled MRI scans and nuclear medicine for sentinel lymph scintigraphy (available and performed in the main QDI radiology department on the ground floor of the hospital).

Following breast screening appointments, results are provided to the patient and referring doctor.

We contact referring doctors for decisions regarding ongoing care and management, when we detect possible cancer pathology or breast changes.
