Women’s & Breast Imaging (WBI) has been serving the WA community for more than four decades and is completely committed to providing quality screening and diagnostic imaging and related services, specifically for women. We are a tertiary referral centre for resolving complex clinical and breast imaging problems.


Our centre’s breast imaging history was pioneered in the early 1980s. WBI is an institution of women’s imaging specialising in breast disease. Our cosy and homey Cottesloe location is a one-stop-shop private imaging centre in Western Australia offering an all-in-house service (including reporting), fully dedicated to breast imaging and intervention procedures and gynaecological ultrasound.


WBI offers all imaging and image-guided biopsy modalities including upright tomosynthesis-guided biopsy procedure (except MRI):

  • Mammogram (3D-Breast Tomosynthesis)

  • Breast Ultrasound

  • Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) Biopsy

  • Ultrasound-Guided Abscess and Cyst Drainage

  • Core Biopsy

  • Vacuum-Assisted Core Biopsy

  • Breast Implant Assessment and Surveillance.


WBI is the first in Australia to revolutionise the use of the Volpara Breast Density tool to better diagnose the early detection of cancer by considering the breast density of every patient when having a mammogram.


To create a more comfortable experience for our patients, all our clinical and front office staff are female. Your care is our primary concern. Our team will give you the respect and attention you deserve, in a professional manner, while maintaining a friendly and considerate atmosphere.
