Expert assistance from dedicated service professionals
The National Reference Laboratory for Breast Health is dedicated to partnering with healthcare providers to maintain and improve the breast health of their patients. Our objective is the detection of the earliest, reversible cellular and molecular changes in the breast ducts that appear long before in situ or invasive breast cancer are detected by current imaging methods through accurate, high quality testing and reporting services. Our unique lab reports, based on objective test results and patient history, allow health professionals to inform women about their current and long term breast health and create management programs that lower the risk of cancer.
Our goal is to provide fast and accurate results that are personalized and easy to explain to your patients. Our board-certified pathologists are focused on breast health and disease and are dedicated to partnering with you to answer your most pressing questions and to confer with you on your most complex cases.
