At Rockwall Women's Imaging & Breast Center we understand that women have unique health care concerns and we address those concerns with great care and attention. We believe that women deserve access to a special place designed specifically for them, where they can obtain highly specialized diagnostic services in a compassionate, caring environment.
We are privileged to have some of the most advanced equipment, enabling us to treat patients efficiently and accurately. Board-certified radiologists interpret the images and oversee all examinations; their experience and skill is combined with patient-centered compassion.
For these reasons, our center is able to offer:
- 3D Total Breast Ultrasound, a promising new technology that assists in detecting cancer earlier
- Mammography, both routine screening and diagnostic services
- CAD services on all mammography images, giving that all important “second look” to the patient’s images
- Breast MRI in conjunction with MRI breast biopsy
- Breast Sonography, including same-day core tissue sampling, for diagnostic patients
- Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, which allows tissue diagnosis of minute areas without the risk and inconvenience of general anesthesia and/or a possible hospital stay
- Ultrasound, which uses inaudible sound waves to visualize organs and tissues of the body
- Bone Density, for measuring bone mineral density
The entire staff at Rockwall Women’s Imaging & Breast Center take pride in the care of our patients. Our entire staff is passionate about breast health and early detection of breast cancer which is evident in the education and service they provide their patients.
To help estimate your risk of developing breast cancer we offer breast cancer risk assessments, which will assist you in better understanding your health and preventative care needs. The breast cancer risk assessment results will only provide an estimate for breast cancer risk based on your risk factors and is not an indicator for predicting breast cancer. To complete the breast cancer risk assessment, click the link below to complete the questionnaire. Please print the results and discuss them with your physician or contact the center at 469-698-1334 for a consultation.
We have made it our mission to reach out to the women of our community, our mothers, daughters and friends; to ask you what's important, what you expect and need from your health care provider. At Rockwall Women's Imaging & Breast Center, we are committed to meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations.

3D Total Breast Ultrasound
The 3D Total Breast Ultrasound is a quick, painless, radiation-free imaging technology that provides a realistic view of the entire breast, giving your physician a complete view of your unique anatomy and capturing any smaller breast cancers that could be overlooked by a standard mammogram. It does not replace standard mammography; but for some patients, especially those with dense breast tissue or a history of breast cancer, or it may be considered an important tool for complete breast health. This procedure is ordered by a physician when medically necessary.
Rockwall Women’s Imaging & Breast Center utilizes digital mammography technology on all screening and diagnostic mammography exams. Digital mammography is different from standard film mammography in the way the images are recorded, viewed and manipulated and then stored by the radiologist. Because the radiologist can electronically manipulate the images’ brightness, contrast and magnification, abnormal areas may be more clearly visualized. Also, there is no waiting for film to develop, which means shorter exam times. There are also less retakes due to overexposure or underexposure, which saves time and reduces radiation exposure.
Our breast center is pleased to have a computer aided design (CAD system) which assists in early detection by acting as a “second eye”. ICAD technology is designed to help radiologists identify potential cancers – and identify them earlier. Studies have shown that using the CAD system can improve early detection by 20 percent.
If you have had previous mammograms at a different location, please let us know. We can access your previous films and have them available to assist the radiologist in identifying any potential changes.
What's the difference between a screening mammogram and a diagnostic mammogram? A screening mammogram is performed for a patient reporting no symptoms. This mammogram may be ordered as a result of standard guidelines or family history. A diagnostic mammogram is performed when a concern is reported. Concerns may include a lump, discharge, pain or other complaint. A diagnostic mammogram may be performed when a patient presents for a regularly planned screening mammogram and reports a concern.
A breast MRI uses dedicated breast imaging coils and has a higher sensitivity, thereby making it more likely to locate smaller tumors. The Breast MRI COIL with Dynacad Biopsy System offers the ability to perform on the spot biopsies for suspected cancerous spots. This reduces the period of waiting and angst that often accompanies news that further diagnostic investigation is needed.
Stereotactic, or image-guided mammography, pinpoints the exact location of a breast mass by using a computer and X-rays taken from two different angles. A biopsy is then performed using the given coordinates. This type of biopsy is less invasive, less painful and just as accurate as surgical biopsy.
Diagnostic Ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses inaudible sound waves to visualize organs and tissues of the body. The scans are performed by a sonographer. Besides enabling diagnosis, the radiologist can perform procedures such as biopsies with the guidance of ultrasound.
Bone density scanning, also called Dual-Energy X-ray Absorpitiometry (DEXA), is a form of X-ray technology used to measure bone loss. DEXA is today’s established standard for measuring bone mineral density. In this safe, painless, 10-minute scan, minimal radiation is used to determine the bone density of the spine or hip. All of our DEXA diagnostic technologists are highly skilled professionals certified in the field of radiology.
