Imaging Services Available 

Digital Mammography: 2D Mammography is low-dose x-ray procedure and the most reliable method available for the detection of breast cancer. Our Coastal Diagnostic Center has the latest GE digital mammography equipment on the Central Coast that creates clearer, faster images with less radiation than a tradition film mammogram. These screenings are coupled with the sophisticated screening tool called Second Look, a computer-aided detection (CAD) technology that provides a computerized second review of mammograms and can highlight potential areas of concern.

3D Mammography: Also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, Coastal Diagnostic Center provides the most advanced breast imaging technology available in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo County: The GE SenoClaire 3D Breast Tomosynthesis. A side-by-side comparison of breast imaging technology demonstrates that the GE SenoClaire has superior in the following areas: 

  • It offers the lowest X-ray dose available in 3D Mammography
  • Contains “step-and-shoot” technology which mitigates repeat exams due to motion
  • Results in superior detection of breast abnormalities and calcifications
  • Uses high resolution detector system


Non-Surgical Stereotactic Biopsy System: We offer stereotactic equipment that provides non-surgical detection of breast disease. It is highly accurate and a significant advance in the ease and accuracy of diagnosing breast disorders.

Ultrasound: The Coastal Diagnostic Center offers the latest Philips exclusive Anatomical Intelligence Ultrasound (EPIQ) equipment that uses sound waves to produce an instantaneous image of the body that appears on a video screen, allowing us to experience the most definitive images.
