We take the safety and well-being of our patients and employees very seriously. If you are experiencing any symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing) do NOT come into our clinic at this time.

About CRL Women’s Imaging

Our team is comprised of dedicated, board-certified breast imagers with broad expertise and genuine interest in breast imaging. We are based at the Piper Breast Center and CRL Imaging Southdale, both designated as Breast Centers of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

As part of our strong commitment to quality care and adherence to regulatory requirements, CRL initiated a cooperative study with our affiliated institutions to coordinate quality assurance data, which exceeds the minimum Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) requirements. Our data is compared to national benchmarks set by the ACR. CRL radiologists consistently exceed the recommended standards.

In late 2015, CRL Women’s Imaging opened its doors inside CRL Imaging Southdale. The newly redesigned Women’s Imaging wing offers Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (also known as 3D Mammography),  Upright Stereotactic Biopsy, and Tomosynthesis Stereotactic Biopsy. We have found a significant increase in invasive cancers utilizing Digital Breast Tomosynthesis.
