Breast Ultrasound

This diagnostic procedure studies a specific area found on the mammogram or on a lump discovered by the woman. This exam can determine the difference between a cystic or solid mass. Breast ultrasounds are used in conjunction with a mammogram. Due to their limited scope, they cannot be used as a replacement for a mammogram.

Mammograms

We are pleased to offer low-cost digital mammography screenings. Evening and weekend hours available for your convenience.

There are many benefits of digital mammography:

  • Digital mammography allows the radiologist to review your test on a computer screen
  • High image quality with the ability to enhance and manipulate the image for further evaluation.
  • High quality image makes it easier to differentiate cancer tissue from normal tissue
  • The images can be magnified to better visualize calcifications
  • Digital images are obtained with up to 60% less radiation exposure to the woman than film images.
  • Digital mammography is faster so the mammogram exam is shorter.
  • Digital images can be stored permanently, with the ability to print on film or disc.
