Breast Health Center Now Performs Brain and Spine Scans

New service is one of many at high-tech John C. Lincoln facility

If you're a breast cancer survivor, you have annual checkups with your oncologist to determine if the cancer may have spread (metastasized). Among the tests your oncologist may prescribe are brain and spine MRIs.

The John C. Lincoln Breast Health and Research Center now has a neuro-radiologist, Hedieh Saghari, MD, trained through a Barrows fellowship, to interpret the brain and spine tests performed at the highly sophisticated MRI machine at the center.

"We're proud to have a physician with Dr. Saghari's training and expertise," said Sherry Gage, Breast Health Center director. "This is one more valuable service we can give our patients."

Providing expert, compassionate care from technologists and physicians, the Center offers state-of-the-art digital mammography, breast ultrasound, ultrasound or stereotactic-guided breast biopsies and MRI imaging.

The Breast Health and Research Center is located at 19646 N. 27th Ave., Suite 205, across the street from John C. Lincoln Deer Valley Hospital. To make an appointment, please call 623-780-HOPE (4673). For more information, visit
