Northwestern Medicine Gavers Breast Center offers the only 3-D mammogram technology in McHenry County. Ideal for women with dense breasts, 3-D mammograms capture multiple images (slices) of the breast at different angles, allowing radiologists to examine each one-millimeter slice at a time and provide a 3-D reconstruction.
We provide additional high-quality medical imaging including:
- Digital mammography
- Breast MRI
- Breast ultrasound
- Stereotactic biopsies
- Bone density test
The Northwestern Medicine Gavers Breast Center hosts support group meetings, special lectures and other events that bring the newest and most advanced information about comprehensive breast care to the region. Along with the McHenry Hospital Cancer Center, we offer various onsite social, emotional, spiritual, physical, dietary, and financial support services for patients and their family members.
An onsite resource library is also available to address the questions and concerns of patients, families and community members. Materials include books, brochures, videos, and other web-related resources.
