Screening mammography can assist in the early detection of breast cancer, even before your health care provider can see or feel changes in the breast. The test, utilizing 3D digital technology, provides superior quality when compared to previous and outdated film imaging. Screening Mammography does not require a doctor’s order.

This procedure is used to evaluate a lump or other irregularity noted by you or your doctor. It is also used to further evaluate an abnormality noted on a screening mammography.
A breast ultrasound (also called sonography) is a safe, non-invasive exam that uses sound waves to see the inside of the breast. It is often used to further investigate an irregularity seen on a mammogram and to distinguish between a fluid-filled lump (a cyst) and a solid lump. This test is especially helpful for women with dense breasts, palpable masses or breast implants.
An advanced technology called DEXA (short for dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) safely, accurately and painlessly measures bone mineral density; an evaluation for osteoporosis and future risk of bone fracture. DEXA scanning can identify low bone density in patients at an early age, enabling doctors to prescribe treatment before the condition worsens.
An X-ray is a common imaging test that’s been used for decades. It can help your doctor view the inside of your body without having to make an incision. This can help them diagnose, monitor, and treat many medical conditions.
Different types of X-rays are used for different purposes. Your doctor may order an X-ray to:
- Examine an area where you’re experiencing pain or discomfort
- Monitor the progression of a diagnosed disease
- Check how well a prescribed treatment is working
