Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC's radiology has always been on the cutting edge in women’s imaging, and is home to some of the most renowned women’s imaging specialists in the nation. Magee-Womens was the first hospital in the United States to install a digital mammography system in 2000 and one of the first to perform MRI-guided, vacuum–assisted biopsies in 2005. In 2006, the hospital completed its conversion to digital mammography, and is now one of the largest digital mammography centers in the country. In addition to mammography, notable procedures provided at this site include sonography, ultrasound- and stereotactic-guided breast biopsy, needle localization, ductography, breast MRI, PET/CT, uterine artery embolization, breast biopsy using radiofrequency, and vacuum-assisted breast biopsy. The Women’s Imaging Division who staff Magee-Womens are involved in several research projects to evaluate the utility of computer-aided detection (CAD) and novel imaging techninques, such as tomosynthesis.
Radiologists rely upon teleradiology to read mammography images captured at Magee-Womens Hospital’s six affiliated Womancare Centers in the Pittsburgh metro area. Magee-Womens Hospital, one of the nation’s leading hospitals devoted exclusively to the care of women and infants, has been serving the population of Pittsburgh since 1911.
