HOUSTON — Synergy Radiology Associates (Synergy) announced it has expanded professional breast radiology services to seven additional Memorial Hermann Health System Outpatient Imaging and Breast Care Centers (Memorial Hermann). Synergy’s comprehensive breast imaging services, which include screening and diagnostic mammography, breast MRI, and breast biopsy, will now be available and easily accessible to even more women across the Greater Houston area.
“Synergy’s fellowship-trained radiologists have been integral providers of radiology services for the Memorial Hermann Health System for many years,” said Synergy Radiology Associates Practice Chair Dr. Walid Adham. “Consistently providing fast, high-quality image interpretations has allowed us to build a strong and successful collaborative relationship with our hospitals, our referring providers and our patients. Adding breast services was a natural extension of our skillset, and we are excited about what is to come,” added Dr. Adham.
According to BreastCancer.org, one in eight women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer throughout the course of her lifetime, which is why scheduling regular breast exams is so important.
With nine total Memorial Hermann locations offering mammograms with Synergy, including specialized breast care centers, Memorial Hermann breast care locations offer convenient access to care. Memorial Hermann has several, advanced breast cancer screening options, providing you with the imaging or procedure that is appropriate for your clinical finding, including mammogram, 3D mammogram, breast MRI, breast biopsy and breast ultrasound.
“Memorial Hermann is ready to expand its partnership with Synergy and continue to provide high quality care to communities throughout Greater Houston. This collaboration allows us to extend our commitment even further and provides the opportunity for important and even lifesaving breast screenings for not only women but men as well,” said Heath Rushing, Memorial Hermann Senior Vice President of Service Lines.
Synergy’s new breast division, consisting of highly trained, sub-specialized breast radiologists, collaborates with Memorial Hermann to provide the highest quality breast health care across all Breast Care Center locations.
“We’re pleased and honored to provide personalized breast care for the Greater Houston community while focusing on the quality of care and patient safety,” said Dr. Ashmitha Srinivasan, Chair, Synergy Radiology Associates Breast Imaging Division.
The Memorial Hermann Outpatient Imaging and Breast Care Center locations now covered by Synergy include: Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital-Outpatient Services; Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital-Imaging Center; Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center-Imaging Center; Memorial Hermann Imaging Center-Cypress; Memorial Hermann Imaging Center-Katy; Memorial Hermann Imaging & Breast Care Center at Greater Heights; Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital-Outpatient Services; Memorial Hermann Imaging Center-Pearland and Memorial Hermann Imaging Center-Convenient Care Center in League City.
