Karina Bukhanov, chief radiologist of breast imaging at the hospital, said telling her patients that they had to travel to have the procedure done was always difficult.
Although the hospital has a mammography and ultrasound machines, Bukhanov said the most sensitive machine they have to detect breast cancer early is the MRI. The problem is MRIs also pick up lesions as well as cancer. It is then up to the doctor to figure out if what they see is cancer.
Bukhanov said they usually do this with the ultrasound machine and other techniques but when they can't they have to resort to biopsies.
"What I had to tell patients was that we see something here but I can't tell you what it is," she said.

"The most important thing about our new Breast Wellness Centre is that everything is in one place," said Dr. Karina Bukhanov, a radiologist and breast imaging specialist.

"Once a mammography is done, if there is an abnormality, we do our own recalls," said Bukhanov.
...
"If a biopsy is required, it can be done under ultrasound guidance or sometimes under mammographic guidance," said Bukhanov. "If a patient still requires further assessment, we can do an MRI, so we have everything on site to be able to diagnose abnormality. By the end of our diagnosis, we're very clear if what we found is benign or normal, or if the patient requires surgery."
Prior to surgery, the breast centre is often called on to administer preoperative needle localization, which involves inserting a wire to help the surgeon localize the tumor in the OR.
Bukhanov, who also works at Princess Margaret and Mount Sinai hospitals in Toronto, said Timmins and District has everything they have with the exception of digital tomosynthesis, "an added technique that creates a 3D picture of the breast and allows us to scroll through it.
"Not all breast centres have it, but it's certainly something we'll be looking to acquire down the road."
