Our rapid diagnostic breast center is unique in Quebec and permits women to receive their mammogram, review results and receive any additional treatment including any biopsy necessary as well as receive results all in one visit. VM Medical is accredited in mammography by the Canadian Association of Radiologists, is the only MRI center in Canada to be accredited by the American College of Radiology, and is the only center in Quebec to be a member of the National Consortium of Breast Centers.
