Lila and Harold Menowitz Comprehensive Breast Center
Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
Mount Sinai Medical Center recognizes the importance of preventive breast health and is committed to providing the most comprehensive breast care. The Lila and Harold Menowitz Breast Center at Mount Sinai provides screening, diagnostics, treatment and support services for breast health, and has been designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology as a result of its focus on service, research, technology and expertise.
The physicians who specialize in breast imaging at Mount Sinai are all fellowship trained, which means they completed their radiology training as well as an extra year of training specifically in breast imaging. State-of-the-art mammography equipment at the Menowitz Comprehensive Breast Center and Gail S. Posner Women’s Center at Mount Sinai Aventura provides digital technology with computer-aided detection to ensure the highest quality images for accurate diagnosis. Comprehensive breast services available at Mount Sinai include digital screening mammography, digital diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computer aided detection, MRI-guided biopsy, cyst aspiration and more.
Accreditation and Awards
The Lila and Harold Menowitz Comprehensive Breast Center has the distinction of being the first breast center in Florida to be accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. This accreditation is given only to those centers that have passed a rigorous evaluation, are committed to provide the highest quality care in breast disease diagnosis, treatment, support and follow-up care and have demonstrated they can comply with the accreditation program’s high standards. Mount Sinai is also the first hospital in Florida and only one of 36 hospitals in the country to receive the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer’s Outstanding Achievement Award three consecutive times, which recognizes our outstanding leadership in cancer care.
Gail S. Posner Women’s Center at Mount Sinai Aventura
Breast mammography is among the diagnostic services available at the Gail S. Posner Women’s Center at Mount Sinai Aventura, located at 2845 Aventura Boulevard, Suite 145. Residents of northern Miami-Dade and southern Broward counties have the convenience of accessing this service, which complements the services available at the Lila and Harold Menowitz Comprehensive Breast Center on our Miami Beach campus.
Mount Sinai’s team-centered approach to cancer care sets it apart from other facilities in the region. Once a week, a multidisciplinary team of specialists – radiologists, oncologists, surgical oncologists and radiation oncologists – meets to review each case, fully discuss and explore all options, and share knowledge to create the best treatment plan for each individual patient, including opportunities to enroll patients in clinical trials.
We encourage all women, including those without symptoms, to visit our Breast Center. We follow American Cancer Society Breast Cancer Screening Guidelines and offer an array of educational and diagnostic services designed to help women remain healthy, and to help us detect breast cancer in its earliest stages. We offer instruction in breast self-exam and analysis of risk factors, as well as the latest screening and detection technologies including digital diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), sterotactic X-ray guided tissue biopsy, ultrasound guided tissue core biopsy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided breast biopsy, all designed to maximize the accuracy of our breast imaging capabilities and aid in the early detection and treatment of any abnormalities.
Scheduling an Appointment
According to the National Cancer Institute, all women age 40 or older should have screening mammograms every one to two years. Early detection of breast cancer with screening mammography means that treatment can be started earlier in the course of the disease, possibly before it has spread. Screening mammography can help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 74, especially for those over age 50.
If you are interested in scheduling a mammogram at the Lila and Harold Menowitz Comprehensive Breast Center at Mount Sinai’s Miami Beach campus or the Gail S. Posner Women’s Center at Mount Sinai Aventura, please call (305) 535-3434.
