Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

West Florida Hospital was the area's first facility to be designated as an Accredited Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, setting the standard of breast care for our community. This BICOE accreditation has only been given to only a few organizations in the state of Florida and is a testament to the high level of quality care that you can expect from our physicians and staff. The American College of Radiology recognized breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in:

  • Digital Mammography
  • Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
  • Breast Ultrasound
  • Ultrasound-guided Breast Biopsy

Lung Cancer Screening

Experts believe that the levels of radiation exposure used in this screening cause minimal risk. While there is agreement that there are potential harms from radiation associated with repeated low-dose CT exams, these risks cannot be accurately estimated since the dose now used is lower with the newer scanners and because we have no long-term experience with lung screening done in this way

The criteria for the screening include:

  • 55-74 years of age
  • No signs or symptoms of current lung cancer (coughing up blood, unexplained cough, weight loss or chest pain)
  • Active or former smoker with a minimum of a 30 pack per year history

Or the following:

  • 50 years of age or older
  • No signs or symptoms of current lung cancer (coughing up blood, unexplained cough, weight loss or chest pain)
  • 20 pack per year (or less) smoking history and have one of the following: radon exposure, lung disease history, family history of lung cancer or other occupational exposure to known cancer-causing chemicals
