Our radiologists who specialize in women’s imaging procedures are highly adept with reading mammograms, bone density scans, breast biopsies and breast ultrasounds.
A mammogram is a low dose x-ray examination of the breast used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women.
Breast ultrasound is performed as a follow-up to further examine an abnormality or lump found during a mammogram. An ultrasound is usually the primary test used to examine a palpable lump in patients 30 years old or younger.
Stereotactic breast biopsy is a simple process of removing a small area of breast tissue for further examination. The procedure requires no anesthesia and is less complicated than surgical biopsy.
