Rockwall Women's Imaging and Breast Center
At the Rockwall Women's Imaging and Breast Center we understand that women have unique health care concerns and we address those concerns with great care and attention. We believe that women deserve access to a special place designed specifically for them, where they can obtain highly specialized diagnostic services in a compassionate, caring environment.



We are privileged to have state-of-the-art equipment that enables us to treat our patients efficiently and accurately. Our radiologists are responsible for interpreting images and oversee all examinations done at the center. Each radiologist has incredible credentials and years of expertise in their field. For these reasons, our center is able to offer:
• Breast MRI in conjunction with MRI breast biopsy
• Mammography, both routine screening and diagnostic services
• CAD services on all mammography images, giving that all important “second look” to the patient’s images
• Breast sonography including same-day core tissue sampling for diagnostic patients
• Stereotactic breast biopsy, which allows tissue diagnosis of minute areas without the risk and inconvenience of general anesthesia and/or a possible hospital stay
• 4-D fetal sonography, which gives parents an up-close and personal look at their child prior to its birth
• Ultrasound, that uses inaudible sound waves to visualize organs and tissues of the body
• Bone Density for measuring bone mineral density
The employees of the Rockwall Women’s Imaging and Breast Center take pride in the care of our patients.

 Our Radiology Technologists, Barbara Nichols and Brandy Bow, have over 30 years of combined experience. Their passion for breast health and early detection of breast cancer is evident in the education and service they provide their patients. Barbara Quast, RN, Breast Nurse Navigator, is here to assist patients every step of the way. She helps women understand the diagnosis of breast cancer and their treatment plan. With support and encouragement Barbara guides women and their families through the breast cancer journey and beyond by offering coordinating care and a vast array of resources.

To help estimate your risk of developing breast cancer we offer breast cancer risk assessments, which will assist you in better understanding your health and preventative care needs. The breast cancer risk assessment results will only provide an estimate for breast cancer risk based on your risk factors and is not an indicator for predicting breast cancer. To complete the breast cancer risk assessment click the link below to complete the questionnaire. Please print the results and discuss them with your physician or contact Barbara Quast at 469-698-1333 for a consultation.

We have made it our mission to reach out to the women of our community, our mothers, daughters and friends; to ask you what's important, what you expect and need from your health care provider. At the Women's Imaging and Breast Center at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall, we are committed to meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations.
Digital Mammography
The Women’s Imaging and Breast Center utilizes state-of-the-art digital mammography technology on all screening and diagnostic mammography exams. Digital mammography is different from standard film mammography in the way the images are recorded, viewed and manipulated and then stored by the Radiologist. Since the radiologist can electronically manipulate the images’ brightness, contrast and magnification, abnormal areas may be more clearly visualized. Also, there is no waiting for film to develop, which means shorter exam times. There are also less retakes due to overexposure or underexposure, which saves time and reduces radiation exposure.

Rockwall Breast Center is pleased to have a computer aided design (CAD system which assists in early detection by acting as a “second eye”. ICAD technology is designed to help Radiologists identify potential cancers – and identify them earlier. Studies have shown that using the CAD system can improve early detection by 20%.

If you have had previous mammograms at a different location, please ask about our mammo retrieve service. We can access your previous films and have them available for your appointment.
Stereotactic Biopsy
Stereotactic, or image-guide, mammography pinpoints the exact location of a breast mass by using a computer and x-rays taken from two different angles. A biopsy is then performed using the given coordinates. This type of biopsy is less invasive, less painful and just as accurate as surgical biopsy.
Breast MRI
A breast MRI uses dedicated breast imaging coils and has a higher sensitivity thereby making it more likely to locate smaller tumors. The Breast MRI COIL with Dynacad Biopsy System offers the ability to perform on the spot biopsies for suspected cancerous spots. This reduces the period of waiting and angst that often accompanies news that further diagnostic investigation is needed.
Diagnostic Ultrasound
Diagnostic Ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses inaudible sound waves to visualize organs and tissues of the body. The scans are performed by a sonographer. Besides enabling diagnoses, the radiologist can perform procedures such as biopsies with the guidance of ultrasound.
4-D Baby Faces Ultrasound
Seeing your unborn child for the first time is sure to touch your heart. Using the latest 4-D fetal imaging, the Women’s Imaging Center allows you to view your baby during a relaxed, personalized and unique ultrasound session. Call today to schedule your first face-to-face with your baby. (469) 698-1100, option 2.
Bone Density
Bone density scanning, also called Dual-Energy X-ray Absorpitiometry (DEXA), is a form of X-ray technology used to measure bone loss. DEXA is today’s established standard for measuring bone mineral density. In this safe, painless, 10-minute scan, minimal radiation is used to determine the bone density of the spine, hip or wrist. All of our DEXA diagnostic technologists are highly skilled professionals certified in the field of radiology.
