Mammography has been recognized as the first line of defense for breast cancer screening. To enhance this first line of defense, we also utilize Ultrasound and MRI to further evaluate any possible breast masses.

PET/CT is often a full body scan that helps in the detection, staging, or re-staging of any possible cancer cells throughout our body.

Bone Densitometry is the preferred technique for measuring bone mineral density (BMD). This measuring technique provides physicians with the best approaches to treat Osteoporosis.

Ultrasound

Most people think ultrasound is only for pregnancy, allowing a patient’s doctor to monitor the development and growth of a baby. In reality, ultrasound (also known as sonography) has many other uses and purposes. The system uses sound waves that are emitted into the body through a device called a transducer or probe, to capture images. These images are interpreted by our radiologists and the results are sent to your doctor. Since ultrasound uses sound waves, there is no concern about radiation at all. Ultrasound images can show changes in the tissues of various internal organs such as the liver, spleen, gallbladder, kidney, pancreas, uterus or prostate. It can show whether a mass is cystic or solid and can be used to see if there are blood clots, or narrowing of veins or arteries. Breast ultrasound can be useful in conjunction with our digital mammography.

Ultrasound exams typically range from 30-60 minutes, depending on what your doctor is looking for. Many ultrasound exams require no advance preparation, but some require specific preparation to optimize images.

Early detection and treatment remain essential to achieving the best possible clinical outcomes in these patients.
