Assessment Clinics:

Our office and assessment clinic are based in a stand alone building to the left of the main gate of Seacroft hospital.

 

Additional mammograms will take place at Seacroft if they are required.image437 These mammograms provide the radiologist with more in depth information on the breasts of the woman.

Once the mammograms have been completed a clinical examination and sometimes an ultrasound is performed.

If the radiologist thinks it is necessary ,a needle biopsy make take place. If this is the case a sample of tissues will be taken and sent to pathology. The results will be received approximately a week later.
