The assessment clinic is where patients undergo the diagnostic process of triple assessment. This includes a radiological assessment, a pathological assessment and a clinical assessment.
A clinical assessment is conducted by a specialist breast surgeon and used to document, evaluate and diagnose results. Breast cancer patients are referred to our results and follow up clinic, where they will plan their treatment and follow-ups.
A radiological assessment of the breast consists of a mammogram, ultrasound or perhaps both.
A pathology assessment is the examination of specimens taken.
