WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – November 29, 2018 – QTbreasthealth, a breast imaging center designed to give women a comfortable experience and radiation-free imaging, will open a new center on Monday, December 3rd at 2970 Camino Diablo, Suite 200 in Walnut Creek.
The Walnut Creek center is the second QTbreasthealth location in the San Francisco Bay Area, following the opening of the organization’s Novato center in August. The openings come on the heels of ongoing trials which found the transmission ultrasound technology used in the centers’ QTscan to be successful in identifying various types of breast tissue, particularly within dense breasts.
“With all that we’ve done in such a short time in our Novato location, we’re excited to bring this incredible technology to the East Bay,” said Dotty Bollinger, Chief Growth Officer, QTbreasthealth. “We believe our technology is an evolution in breast imaging, and we’re now able to reach more women than ever before through this expansion.”
The foundation of the center’s innovative approach is the QTscan – an emerging new trend in ultrasound 3D breast imaging that has no radiation, no compression, and no injections. QT Ultrasound has received FDA clearance for its breast imaging system. The QTscan is not intended as a replacement for screening mammography.
The newly renovated Walnut Creek center has abundant space with 2,066 square feet and will feature a spa-like setting, ample parking and balcony access with scenic views. Unlike at other breast imaging centers, a patient will receive results via phone or teleconference with a board-certified physician within just 72 hours.
Because the QTscan uses no radiation, the exam is available to adults of all ages and avoids the frequency limits associated with radiation-based imaging tests. The clear and more complete image delivered by the QTscan makes QTbreasthealth the perfect second opinion for breast imaging and a more detailed image than mammography or handheld ultrasound.
Women interested in an appointment can conveniently schedule their visit online at the QTbreasthealth website.
“Breast cancer impacts all races, religions, body types and ages, which means early detection and regular breast imaging is incredibly important for all women,” Bollinger said. “The QTscan has the clarity to see what other methods may miss, and our centers provide a comfortable, compassionate setting when women need it the most.”
