Digital Mammography

Digital Mammography is a form of X-ray technology specialized to diagnose abnormalities in breast tissue. The design of the machines ensures top image quality while minimizing the radiation dose, and can highlight areas that require additional testing. According to the American Cancer Society, only 8 to 10% of mammograms require a follow-up biopsy, 80% of which are found to be benign.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound produces real-time 3D images from inside the human body with high-frequency sound waves. Since there is no radiation involved, it is commonly used for obstetrical imaging, as well as for aorta, bladder, renal, thyroid, breast, scrotal, carotid, arms and legs, and pelvis imaging.

Stereotactic Breast Biopsy

This minimally-invasive, outpatient procedure is used to obtain samples of breast tissue to accurately determine if cancer exists. After using local anesthetic on the breast tissue, a breast surgeon will use X-ray images as a guide to collect the tissue with a needle. The procedure only takes an hour, and unlike traditional surgical biopsy, leaves little to no scarring and has zero downtime.

Clinical Breast Examination

Bone Density Scanning

Also known as DEXA, this test is the most widely used method of studying bone density, and is used to diagnose and track bone loss and osteoporosis. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recommends that all women over 65 are screened regularly for osteoperosis, as well as “at risk” women and men over 60 and 50, respectively.
