Cedar Park Regional Medical Center opened its new Women’s Imaging Center in February, making room for comprehensive breast imaging and cancer diagnostic services.

“We are excited to open a center that is dedicated to the detection of breast cancer at its earliest and most treatable stages,” CPRMC CEO Bo Beaudry said in the January press release.

Located at 1301 Medical Parkway, the 2,431-square-foot center offers ultrasonography, bone densitometry and 3D mammography with advanced biopsy capabilities.

Mammogram readings and bone density studies will be provided by radiologists from Austin Radiological Association, according to the release. The radiologists will also provide reports for the patients and their primary care physicians.

If an abnormality is detected, there is also a breast surgeon available that can effectively guide patients through treatment, Director of Marketing Laura Balla said.

CPRMC’s Women’s Imaging Center was established due to the hospital’s growing service area and the “importance of the early detection of breast cancer,” Balla said. The new technology at the center will allow the hospital to more than double the number of women that it serves on an annual basis.

The center—which is housed in the Pediatric Specialty Center just west of CPRMC—has a dedicated entrance with convenient parking and on-site registration.

“Our vision is to offer the full continuum of women’s imaging services with a personalized approach,” Beaudry said. “The center offers patients enhanced comfort, convenience and privacy.”
