Women’s Imaging Center at RAO: A Champion of Women’s Health and Early, Accurate Detection

Women’s Imaging Center at RAOSince 1973, RAO has been dedicated to promoting and protecting health and quality of life through preventative screening exams and next-level diagnostic testing. Because women have specific healthcare needs, RAO established Women’s Imaging Center (WIC), the region’s first and only comprehensive, full-service center dedicated to women’s diagnostic services. Utilizing the most effective technologies and procedures, WIC’s team of Board Certified radiologists subspecialize in an array of women’s imaging services and procedures dedicated to the highest standard of accuracy and care.

WIC’s state-of-the-art facility offers a full spectrum of women’s screening and diagnostic services, including breast tomosynthesis, also known as 3D mammography, the most detailed routine breast cancer screening exam for exceptional accuracy. When a screening mammogram produces questions, WIC also offers important follow-up testing such as breast MRI and ultrasound, and image-guided breast biopsy, which is often scheduled timely to get answers fast. Our caring staff is at the ready to assist you through every step, for better understanding and exceptional support.

WIC’s team of highly experienced radiologists subspecialize in women’s imaging, meaning they have additional years of training in their specific fields. Overseen by Medical Director Dr. Amanda Aulls, every screening and test is performed with the utmost empathy and respect, and all images are read in-house by WIC specializing radiologists, Dr. Fredric Wollett, Dr. Malcolm Williamson, Dr. Ryan Tompkins and Dr. Brian Cartwright, who have long-standing relationships with referring clinicians throughout the region, for rapid consultation and collaboration whenever necessary.

In addition to comprehensive breast cancer testing, WIC also offers pelvic ultrasound, a radiation-free noninvasive exam of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and other structures to diagnose disease and dysfunction quickly, safely and painlessly, and DEXA bone densitometry to capture osteoporosis and monitor its progress, and help provide protection from fracture.

It is important to note that WIC maintains ongoing accreditation from the American College of Radiology, ensuring the highest level of safety and accuracy in breast ultrasound, stereotactic breast biopsy, MRI and other women’s diagnostic procedures. WIC’s standard of care have designated it a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, an honor given to very few regional women’s diagnostic centers.

For walk-in 3D mammography to DEXA bone-density testing to Central Florida’s most advanced diagnostics, you can rely on RAO’s Women’s Imaging Center, and for select services, TimberRidge Imaging Center.
