Learn more about our services:

  • Digital mammography – Mammograms are X-ray images of the breast that are used to detect the early stages of breast cancer. Digital mammograms can be viewed on a computer, allowing radiologists to enlarge, brighten, and manipulate the images to examine them more closely. It is recommended that women receive their first mammogram at age 40.
  • Stereotactic breast biopsy – This is a nonsurgical procedure used to more closely examine abnormalities found in breast tissue. A needle is used to extract a sample of the abnormal tissue which is then lab tested for signs of cancer.
  • Breast ultrasounds – Breast ultrasounds are yet another tool used to examine abnormal breast lumps for signs of cancer. Ultrasounds use sound waves rather than radiation, making it a useful procedure for patients who need to avoid radiation-based procedures.
  • Bone density tests – also known as a DEXA scan, bone density tests are used to diagnose or assess a patient’s risk for osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a common condition for women that makes bones more brittle and easier to fracture. Bone density tests are recommended for women ages 65 and older.
