Eisenhower Schnitzer/Novack Breast Center
With two convenient locations, the Eisenhower Schnitzer/Novack Breast Center welcomes you with our friendly staff and warm environment. State-of-the-art technology is balanced with rich colors and textures to reflect the serenity and comfort of your home. The Center offers an approach to women's health care that is comprehensive, convenient and caring. Here you have access to complete breast care, from screening mammography through diagnosis and follow-up. And while our focus is breast health care, our goal is your peace of mind.
Coordinated and compassionate services are the cornerstone of our care. If a suspicious lump or thickening is detected, our breast health team is here for you every step of the way. Our Breast Nurse Specialist will help you understand your options and demystify the breast cancer treatment process. She'll also help coordinate any services you might need, such as breast cancer support groups or programs.
Eisenhower Medical Center was the first in the Coachella Valley to install the SenoClaire™ three-dimensional breast tomosynthesis — this imaging technology offers high resolution, low radiation mammograms that provide excellent detection for patients with all types of breast tissue, particularly those with dense breasts. Unlike traditional digital mammography, breast tomosynthesis can produce nine different exposures from different angles that offer a 3D view of the breast. The tomosynthesis mammogram has been found to reduce the frequency of patients being “called back” to the office to have follow up imaging to rule out concerns. To learn more, ask about the “Tomo” when you call for your appointment. Certain patients are not eligible for the Tomo based on pre-existing conditions; be sure to ask if it’s right for you. Most major insurance plans, including Medicare, provide coverage for this type of mammogram. Ask for more information when you make your appointment.
Eisenhower was the first facility in Southern California to offer Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI), a technology that more accurately identifies breast cancer previously undetected by mammography. Clinically proven as an effective device in the early detection of breast cancer, BSGI functions as a complementary diagnostic tool following difficult-to-read mammograms. Patients with dense breast tissue, multiple suspicious lesions, breast implants, a previously diagnosed mass, or those using Hormone Replacement Therapy will benefit most from BSGI.
Eisenhower is also a Breast Center of Excellence recognized by the American College of Radiology.
