The UOC of Breast Radiology deals with:

  • Management of patients with suspected breast cancer lesions in order to arrive at an accurate diagnosis of benignity or malignancy through the use of instrumental tests (mammography / tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging) and biopsies performed under the guidance of the rays -X, or ultrasound, or magnetic resonance.
  • Study of the extent of the tumor and the involvement of any nearby or distant tissues or organs (“staging”). This information represents the indispensable basis to allow the multidisciplinary team of the Breast Unit (which includes oncologists, surgeons, radiotherapists, radiologists, pathologists, case manager nurses and specialists for genetic counseling) to customize the patient’s therapeutic path in order to optimize the effectiveness and improve the quality of life. The multidisciplinary team meets once a week.
  • Follow-up of patients treated for breast cancer with particular attention to patients in neoadjuvant treatment and to patients with metastatic disease, subjected to pharmacological protocols that require radiological examinations scheduled over time in order to verify the response to therapies.
  • Breast cancer prevention in specific groups of women, who are not already involved in organized screening programs, scheduling them the tests necessary for surveillance. In particular, there is a direct collaboration with the Hereditary Tumors Unit for the surveillance of women at risk of hereditary family.
  • Integration of protocols deriving from clinical radiological studies in the care activity in order to test pathways, organizational models or new technologies for the diagnosis of breast cancer.

The Breast Radiology Unit includes the Radiology Simple Unit.


  • Mammography
  • Ultrasound
  • Magnetic resonance
  • Biopsies


For standard examinations (mammography, ultrasound) with negative results, the report is delivered in real time by the radiologist, while for magnetic resonance the report is available after 5 working days.

In the case of a biopsy, the report is delivered by the radiologist together with the report of the histological examination by the Pathological Anatomy, with the possibility, in the event of a tumor diagnosis, to continue the therapeutic process within the Institute.

It is also possible, after paying the ticket (if you do not benefit from an exemption), to download the report (and images) from the website https://service.aopd.veneto.it/portalereferti/.
