Services at the Women’s Imaging Center include:
• Bone Densitometry
: Heel screenings and full exams to check for osteoporosis.
• Breast MRI
: MRI of the breast is not a replacement for mammography or ultrasound imaging but rather a supplemental tool for detecting and staging breast cancer and other breast abnormalities.
• Breast Ultrasound
: A painless diagnostic test using sound waves to visualize parts of the body.
• Digital Mammography
: This low dose x-ray of the breast is a life saving procedure that can often detect breast cancer at its earliest stages when the cure rate is near 100 percent.
• Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
: This advanced procedure allows a physician to perform a biopsy of a suspicious area without the need for surgery. And since local anesthesia is utilized, you’re usually home in about 2 hour.
