Quality Breast Imaging Services Close to Home
Whether it’s time for your routine screening mammogram or you require a diagnostic mammogram or breast biopsy, the Women’s Imaging Center at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Flower Mound is here for you, conveniently close to home. Using sophisticated technology, the Center’s talented and caring all-female team provides personalized, quality breast care… woman to woman.
“Our Center offers a peaceful, quiet, welcoming environment with a spa-like feel and amenities that help patients feel at ease. Our breast imaging technicians have years of experience in women’s imaging and we can provide access to other specialists to get you to the next level of care if needed,” says Director of Radiology Julie Eberting, “including breast surgeons and oncologists.”
Comfort and Peace of Mind
Understanding that breast care is an important aspect of a woman’s overall healthcare needs, the Center’s compassionate team, having had mammograms themselves, can relate directly to what their patients feel and experience.
“It’s normal to be nervous whether you’re getting your first mammogram, a diagnostic mammogram, a biopsy, or an annual screening mammogram,” says Women’s Imaging Center Manager Wendy Winfrey. “We spend as much time as needed with our patients from answering questions to offering emotional support. Patients feel like friends to us and no one is rushed through an appointment.”
The Center’s team includes Dr. Catherine Fusilier, a fellowship-trained breast radiologist dedicated exclusively to breast care. While all radiologists undergo some training in mammogram interpretation and the interpretation of other breast imaging studies, Dr. Fusilier chose to complete a rigorous one-year fellowship focused solely on breast imaging interpretation and breast procedures.
Evolving and Advancing
Dedicated to best meeting their patients’ needs, the Women’s Imaging Center continues to evolve. Recently, the Center added new equipment that enables women to sit up, versus lay on their stomach, during a stereotactic breast biopsy. Stereotactic breast biopsy uses mammography to help locate a breast abnormality and remove a tissue sample for examination under a microscope. It’s less invasive than surgical biopsy and leaves little to no scarring.
“It’s much more comfortable for women to sit up during this procedure than to lay prone on their stomach on a high table with an opening through which the breast hangs down for access to imaging,” explains Dr. Fusilier.

The American College of Radiology recommends annual mammography screening starting at age 40 for women of average risk of developing breast cancer. Talk with your doctor to determine if you should have mammograms at an earlier age.
“We have everything we need here at the Center to help us provide fantastic breast care to our patients, including 3D mammograms called breast tomosynthesis,” says Dr. Fusilier.
“With 3D images, it’s generally easier for radiologists to detect smaller cancers at an early stage as well as non-cancerous lesions that may develop into cancer. This helps us save more lives through early detection and reduces the number of recalls for additional imaging.”
