Our goal is to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Most imaging procedures are painless, but we understand you may be anxious. Our goal is to put you at ease and offer you a quick, user-friendly experience. Some of the scans offered at the Women’s Imaging Center include:
- Mammograms. A mammogram is a specialized X-ray of the breast used to screen for breast cancer. Mammograms can detect tumors too small to be felt during breast exams. Mammograms may also be used in the diagnosis of breast cancer after a lump is found.
- Ultrasound. An ultrasound is painless test that uses sound waves to produce images of soft tissue. Most people know about ultrasounds taken during pregnancy to show the growth of a fetus. Ultrasounds can also be used to find fibroids and other problems in the uterus and elsewhere in the abdomen and pelvis.
- Bone density scan. Bone density scanning is an enhanced X-ray used to measure the density of bone minerals. Bone density scans test for osteoporosis, a thinning of bones. The hormonal changes women experience as they get older make them more susceptible to developing osteoporosis.
