Diagnostics Cowles Clinic Now Offers Ultrasound Guided Breast Biopsy

Paul Dale, MD, Joins Clinic to Offer New Service

Diagnostics Cowles Clinic, Navicent Health Baldwin is pleased to announce the addition of ultrasound guided breast biopsies for the Greensboro area. Ultrasound guided breast biopsy uses sound waves to locate abnormalities and remove tissue samples for testing, leading to quicker diagnosis and treatment. It is less invasive than surgical biopsy, minimizing the chance of scarring, and does not involve exposure to radiation.

Paul Dale, MD, joins Diagnostics Cowles Clinic to provide this additional service to the lake country. Dr. Dale has practiced surgical oncology for over 20 years and specializes in the surgical treatment of breast cancer, melanoma and skin cancer, gastric cancer and soft tissue cancer.

""Until now, those in need of breast biopsies had to travel to larger metro areas for this service. Now, thanks to Diagnostics Cowles Clinic and Navicent Health, those in need of an ultrasound guided breast biopsy can access the service close to home. I'm pleased to work with this outstanding group to provide this service,"" said Dr. Dale.

Navicent Health opened Diagnostics Cowles Clinic in Greensboro in May of 2019 in order to offer comprehensive outpatient diagnostic services to the residents of Georgia's lake country. In addition to breast biopsies, highly trained technologists use advance imaging technology to offer a range of imaging services, including the following:

Screening and diagnostic 3D mammography

Low dose CT scanning

General radiology

Vascular and general ultrasound


DEXA bone scans

Lab collection services.

Diagnostics Cowles Clinic earned American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation for mammography in August 2019.
