Every Staff member at the Garden City Center for Breast Care recognizes that the complexity of the breast health care system can leave patients feeling confused, lost, or afraid; the breast health patient navigator helps patients by guiding them through the various imaging services offered and connecting them with appropriate resources and support. Our program goals include improving patient satisfaction and enhancing access to early detection through patient education and imaging services in cooperation with the patients referring physician.
Detecting cancer early makes all the difference
Women diagnosed with breast cancer at stage 1 have nearly a 100% five-year survival rate, according to the American Cancer Society. However, women with stage 4 cancers have only a 22% chance of living another five years. Finding breast cancer sooner translates to significantly higher odds of survival.
Breast cancer screening has improved significantly over the past few years with advances in 3D technology in mammography, or digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), which offers better image quality and data than ever before. Garden City Hospital is the only hospital in Wayne County, Michigan to offer ProFound AI for DBT – the first and only 3D tomosynthesis software using artificial intelligence (AI). Benefits of 3D mammography include:
- Produces hundreds of images rather than the typical four images with 2D technology to provide doctors with more information and better images.
- Helps doctors detect cancers earlier with unrivaled accuracy and helps better identify suspicious areas.
- Less false positives and unnecessary recalls.
- Personalized compression for a more comfortable exam.
- Reduces steps during your exam.

Do you know what your risk for Breast cancer is?
Garden City Hospital also offers other breast care services beyond the yearly mammogram. We offer the area’s most advanced total breast care including a full risk assessment for every patient. GCH breast care includes:
- Full Field Digital Mammography
- Ultrasound Services including Biopsy
- Stereotactic Biopsy
GCH breast care offers ultrasound evaluation. A breast ultrasound examination is an investigative technology used for taking a closer look at areas of your breast that your doctor still has questions about after doing a mammogram and clinical breast exam. An ultrasound test may be useful if you have dense breast tissue, your mammogram shows an indistinct mass, or if a lump can be easily felt during a clinical breast exam.
Bone Densitometry (Dexa) Scanning
GCH breast care also offers Bone Densitometry (Dexa) Scanning for both men and women. Testing patients with Bone Densitometry (Dexa) Scanning is a non-invasive, quick and painless technology that is used to measure bone mass. Bone mass, simply put, is the weight of the skeleton, overall or in specific regions. Bone mineral density, or BMD, reveals a risk factor for fractures.
Bone Densitometry testing is recommended for:
- Persons taking anti-coagulants
- Both men and women
- Premature menopause
- Those who have taken chemotherapy, radiation therapy, history of osteopenia, hyperthyroidism or irritable bowel disease.
