Digital mammography still holds the gold standard for breast health imaging. Our GE Senographe Essential Mammography machine provides enhanced patient comfort and features faster-motorized positioning, reducing your total procedure time. Advanced Shore Imaging offers Tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography. This gives better visualization of breast tissue. The camera moves over the breast in an arc, taking multiple, very low dose, X-rays in just a few seconds. Tiny masses and areas of concern can be seen allowing the detection of breast cancer earlier when it is most treatable. A screening mammogram is part of routine breast health. A diagnostic mammogram is used to investigate breast symptoms such as a lump, pain, nipple thickening or discharge or a change in breast size or shape. For the best in breast health, speak to your healthcare provider to make sure you are following the mammography screening guidelines and schedule your 3D mammogram.
The DEXA scan provides measurement of bone mineral density used to diagnose and monitor osteoporosis, the bone-thinning disease that mainly affects post-menopausal women.
