Memorial Hermann and MD Anderson expand integrated breast screening and imaging program

Memorial Hermann and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center announced they have expanded operations under their collaboration to offer highquality, specialized breast screening and diagnostic services in the Cy- Fair, Willowbrook, Upper Kirby, and Pasadena communities – bringing the number of breast centers in the Greater Houston region to 14.

MD Anderson Breast Care with Memorial Hermann provides patients in the Greater Houston region with access to MD Anderson’s specialized breast imaging and expertise, and Memorial Hermann’s advanced technologies, access, and convenience.

Memorial Hermann imaging offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art screenings and diagnostics, including, but not limited to, biopsies and ultrasounds, as well as 3D and digital mammograms with boardcertified and dedicated breast specialists.

“It’s great to collaborate with Memorial Hermann to bring the resources of two outstanding teams to patients in these communities,” said Jay Parikh, M.D., medical director of the joint program and associate professor of Diagnostic Imaging at MD Anderson. “We know that catching breast cancer early offers patients the best possible options for treatment, and making that early diagnosis – or giving the news that all is clear – starts with confident, quality screening.”
