OU Breast Institute
OU Breast Institute is more than just a mammography facility – it is a comprehensive care center offering cutting edge breast cancer detection technology and treatment in the comfort of a beautiful and peaceful environment. In fact, it is the only facility in Oklahoma to attain accreditation in mammography, breast ultrasound and stereotactic biopsy from the American College of Radiology. In an effort to streamline care for patients, the Institute assigns a nurse navigator to each woman diagnosed with breast cancer. The nurse navigator acts a liaison between patient and physician, is available 24 hours a day, and serves as an educator, supporter, and advocate throughout treatment.
"The NCBF award has allowed us to take care of a population who would otherwise have no access to breast screening and/or diagnostic services. These women are eligible for state funded treatment, but have few other resources for diagnosis. We strongly believe that the collaboration between the OU Breast Institute and the National Breast Cancer Foundation has saved lives by providing early detection."
