A mammogram (X-ray of the breast) is the most valuable tool we have at this point to assist in early detection of breast cancer.
Mammography can allow doctors to find a cancer before it is felt and is more easily treatable.We know mammograms save lives.
Digital mammography is the most advanced mammography technology. By obtaining mammograms digitally instead of on
film, images can be manipulated to enhance quality. Computer Assisted Detection (CAD) provides a "second look" for the radiologist
while interpreting a mammogram.
A screening exam is a yearly test performed to screen for breast cancer for women age 40 and over.
A diagnostic exam is performed when there is a problem with the breasts or to follow up on a previous abnormal mammogram.
Breast ultrasound is used to further evaluate an abnormality found on a mammogram or abnormal physical examination. Breast ultrasound
is also used to guide a needle during a biopsy or aspiration.
An aspiration is a simple, often therapeutic procedure performed to remove fluid from a cyst.
Core Needle Biopsy is a diagnostic procedure performed to determine if a mass is benign or malignant.
A Galactogram is a mammogram exam that is done after an xray dye is injected into amilk duct. This may be needed when there
is an abnormal nipple discharge.
DEXA or Bone Density Test for osteoporosis uses a very small amount of radiation to measure the density, or thickness of the bones of the hips and lower
spine.This test provides an indication of the risk for future fracture and helps monitor response to treatment. Early detection of bone loss can help prevent osteoporosis and reduce future fracture risk.
Body Fat Analysis uses the same technology that we use to measure bone density, a measurement of percent body fat can be obtained by subtracting
the bone and lean tissue mass. It can show exactly where fat is distributed throughout your body. Body Fat Analysis can help with your health and fitness goals by providing a more accurate, reproducible measurement of body fat. By knowing your body fat percentage and the range it falls in, you can take measures to improve
your health and reduce your risk for weight related problems.
