The Good Samaritan Hospital Breast Care Center, located in Los Gatos, CA, has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI, and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy).

You Are In Capable Hands at Good Samaritan
A startling fact is that one in eight women run the risk of developing breast cancer sometime in their life. With the help of our team, you can take the steps today to prevent cancer and possibly even destroy the disease altogether.
Your breast tissue is comprised of fatty tissues, blood vessels, lymph vessels, and glands. Cancer can begin in the in the cells within the ducts, and possibly even spread to other areas of the breast by traveling through lymph nodes and even the blood. Ongoing monitoring by you and our caring team can help discover any concerns early on, addressing warning signs efficiently and effectively.
