The Breast Unit of Mantua ASST operates as a corporate reference centre for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of breast disease. With a view to a total and multidisciplinary take-over of the breast patient, dedicated specialists such as radiologists, pathologists, surgeons / reconstructors, oncologists, geneticists, radiotherapists, nuclear doctors, psychologists, gynecologists, physiotherapists and nutritionists operate within the BU. Surgical activity is carried out by the same team, both on outpatient and hospitalization level, in the three hospitals of the company. Weekly multidisciplinary meeting represent the decision-making moment of all the activities: on the basis of the clinical-instrumental data acquired, the most appropriate therapeutic indication is shared in compliance with a pre-established PDTA and national and international guidelines. The BU is accompanied by both Mammographic Screening for the early diagnosis of breast cancer, and Genetic Counseling Clinic for the management of patients with hereditary or high family risk pathology.
