Why Digital Mammography?
Digital mammography is ideal in detecting breast abnormalities in women under 50 or women with dense breast tissue, who are often at higher risk for breast cancer. We also utilize CAD (computer aided detection) which searches for abnormal areas on mammograms.
- High image quality with the ability to enhance and manipulate the image for further evaluation
- Secure digital image storage, with the ability to print on film
- Shorter mammogram exam times
All diagnostic procedures are done on site. If additional diagnostic exams are indicated, we can assist with the scheduling and expedite the process; and in some cases, we can provide the next exam immediately.
If diagnostic imaging shows a need for a biopsy (removing small tissue sample to determine if cancer is present) we will assist you in making an appointment with one of our breast care surgical specialists.
