Mammography & Digital Mammography
Early detection is a women's best defense in the fight against breast cancer. The earlier the cancer is detected, the more options there are for treatment. The mammography suite at the Outpatient Imaging Center features the latest state-of-the-art mammography equipment with the lowest dose of radiation available. A mammogram, which is an x-ray of the breast, is used to look for breast disease in women.
If you’re worried about a potential lump in your breast, we offer stereotactic breast biopsy for an accurate diagnosis. This procure uses a tiny needle and mammographic images to take samples of your breast tissue. During this test, you’ll lie comfortably on your stomach while the samples are taken and x-rayed.
Our advanced system only targets the affected area. After the test, we recommend that you refrain from heavy lifting for 24-48 hours.
