Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center @ Memorial Sloan Kettering – New York, NY
The culmination of 20 years of development, the 16-story building at 300 East 66th Street houses the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Imaging Center. The breast center — triple the size of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s first breast center, which opened in 1992 — offers patients the most advanced outpatient services for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. The imaging center features leading-edge diagnostic and treatment planning services for many types of cancer.
The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Imaging Center offers two floors of diagnostic imaging and treatment planning services for breast and a range of other cancers. The technology includes equipment used in primary breast cancer detection, such as digital mammography units, a stereotactic biopsy unit, and ultrasound units. In addition, there is the equipment needed for breast cancer staging and the detection of metastatic disease, including two 64-slice CT scanners — which use CT radiation reduction protocols — one SPECT/CT scanner, one 1.5-T and two 3-T MRI scanners, and a PET/CT scanner.
