Mammography

Have you suffered through an uncomfortable mammography session in the past? Our Senographe Essential mammography machine provides enhanced patient comfort for a less-stressful mammography experience. The patient-friendly ergonomic design provides easy wheelchair access, and features faster motorized positioning, reducing your total procedure time. A larger field of view enables us to image larger-breasted women with the standard four pictures, without compromising image quality.

3D “Low Dose” Tomosynthesis

Tomosynthesis, also referred to as 3D mammography, is the latest among the technological advances that offer doctors a better way to screen patients for breast cancer. Tomosynthesis gives us better visualization of the breast tissue. In standard digital mammography, there is overlap of the normal breast tissue, making abnormalities harder to see. With Tomosynthesis, the camera moves over the breast in an arc, taking multiple, very low dose, x-rays in just a few seconds. By scanning through the breast images slowly, tiny masses and areas of distortion can be seen that may not be visible when all the breast tissue is overlapped on one view. Tomosynthesis increases the accuracy of screening mammography by allowing us to detect breast cancer we wouldn’t otherwise see until later.

Sometimes, a traditional mammogram screening is inconclusive, and radiologists need to take an even closer look. That’s where SenoBright comes in. It’s like getting a second opinion. SenoBright highlights unusual blood flow that may be cause for suspicion, with both a low energy image showing tissue density and a contrast-enhanced image with the background signal subtracted out. A SenoBright scan is administered much like a regular mammography exam and can be performed in less than ten minutes.

OB/GYN Ultrasounds

An ultrasound is a non-invasive, diagnostic tool that utilizes high frequency sound waves to create images used to identify or rule out potential health concerns. At Advanced Shore Imaging, our healthcare professionals provide state-of-the-art diagnostic tests in a warm, caring environment. Through ultrasound, we can visualize the baby’s heartbeat, identify multiple pregnancies and determine an accurate due date. As your pregnancy progresses, ultrasounds are utilized to screen for fetal anomalies and monitor your baby’s growth and well-being.

Zero-Radiation ABVS

At Advanced Shore Imaging, we offer the latest technology in breast cancer detection for patients with dense breast tissue. By capturing a 3D ultrasound image, the Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS) allows a more detailed and clearer image as a follow-up to a conventional mammogram. We are the only imaging center in the region to offer zero-radiation ABVS. This revolutionary system is yet another way that Advanced Shore Imaging is staying ahead of the technology curve.

DEXA

Bone density scanning is an enhanced form of X-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss. DEXA scanning is a simple, painless procedure used to measure bone mineral density and accurately diagnose osteoporosis, the bone-thinning disease that mainly affects post-menopausal women. The test is performed by a radiologist or technologist and requires no injections, sedation, special diet or any other advance preparation. In most cases, it can be completed in 30 minutes or less. DEXA scans can also be used to measure total body composition and fat content to a high degree of accuracy. All women over the age of 65 should get a DEXA scan, according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.
