Breast Imaging

Dr. Gary Mathews

Dr. Gary Mathews is a board certified radiologist who has earned a reputation as Acadiana’s most skilled and trusted physician in the specialty of breast screening and diagnosis. In 1996, he became the medical director of radiology services at Women and Children’s Hospital. While there, he led the creation and development of the Elaine M. Junca Breast Center. Later, Dr. Mathews decided to start his own breast imaging center, and in 2008 he opened The Breast Center of Acadiana.

He was the first radiologist in the Acadiana region dedicated solely to breast imaging, and the first to implement a successful supplemental screening breast ultrasound program for women with mammographically dense tissue.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

One of the most advanced and accurate imaging methods known to modern medicine. MRI uses a powerful but harmless magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of specific body structures and organs. MRI has been proven effective in the diagnosis of specific types of breast cancer. An MRI is recommended for high risk patients (not just a regular screening procedure).
