3D mammograms capture multiple slices of breast images, all at different angles. The images are brought together to create crystal-clear 3D reconstruction of the breast. The radiologist is then able to review the reconstruction, one thin slice at a time, almost like turning pages in a book.
An ultrasound is an exam that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasounds do not use radiation and can produce images in real time. Breast ultrasound is sometimes used to evaluate breast problems that are found during a screening or diagnostic mammogram.
3D Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound imaging technology utilizes ultrasound to scan the entire breast while the patient lies in a comfortable prone position. There is no breast compression or radiation associated with this procedure and produces images of the breast for review by the radiologist.
A DEXA scan may be recommended if you have an increased risk of developing a bone problem like osteoporosis. Your risk is increased if you: have had a broken bone after a minor fall or injury; or have a health condition, such as arthritis, that can lead to low bone density.
A General Diagnostic Ultrasound provides real-time images of the major organs of the body. This type of Ultrasound may be used to diagnose abdominal aortic aneurysms, renal masses, gallstones, pancreatic masses, liver disease, splenic infections or common bile duct obstructions.
