Breast cancer remains a significant concern for many individuals, with early detection playing a pivotal role in improving outcomes.

1. State-of-the-Art Technology:

At GLMI, we believe in harnessing the power of the latest imaging technology. Our facilities are equipped with:

  • Digital Mammography: Providing clearer, high-resolution images.
  • 3D Mammography (Tomosynthesis): Offering a layered, three-dimensional view of the breast for greater accuracy.
  • Breast MRI: Especially beneficial for high-risk patients, giving an even more detailed visualization.
  • Ultrasound Imaging: Essential for distinguishing between different types of breast lesions.

From the moment patients walk in to when they receive their results, every step is designed with the patient's emotional and physical well-being in mind.

4. Rapid Results:

We understand the stress of waiting for medical results. That’s why GLMI prioritizes delivering breast screening results as quickly as possible, reducing the waiting time and associated anxiety.

5. Comprehensive Services:

Apart from screening, GLMI offers a range of other breast imaging services such as diagnostic mammograms, biopsies, and consultations. This comprehensive care ensures that patients don't need to seek multiple providers for follow-up care.

6. Community Engagement:

GLMI's commitment to breast health extends beyond our facilities. We are actively engaged in the Western New York community, participating in awareness campaigns, educational events, and support groups. We believe in empowering our community with knowledge and resources.
