Some of the preventative screenings available in the Women’s Diagnostic Center are:
3D Tomosynthesis Digital Mammography
This is the most advanced mammography imaging technology available for the detection of breast cancer. Procedures are quicker and images are clearer, making it easier to identify potential problem areas.
This procedure provides diagnostic information that is different, but complementary to, mammography. It is particularly useful in evaluating palpable lumps, soft tissue masses and cysts. It is often the first choice for image-guided procedures because of the ease of use, safety and patient comfort.
Bone Density Testing
This test measures the calcium content and density of your bones. Detection of abnormalities in this area, if caught early, can be treated and save you the possibility of a fracture later.
Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
This is a less invasive and more cost effective than other surgical methods. It also allows you to return to a normal routine in a shorter period of time.
Specially trained and certified technologists staff Tri-State’s Imaging and Women’s Diagnostic Center. Our two board-certified radiologists are Dr. John Mannschreck and Dr. John Whitaker.
From a yawn to a stretch, we’re able to give an expectant mother an amazing look at her unborn baby inside the womb. “First Peek” ultrasound includes: 30-45 minute 3D/4D ultrasound and a disc with as many still images as your baby allows. Call the Imaging Center at 758.4658 to schedule your appointment or purchase a gift certificate.
Though Ultrasound is most commonly associated with pregnancies, it is also used to obtain images of the heart, abdominal and pelvic organs, and vascular systems throughout the body.
