Diagnostic Imaging

We are committed to providing the latest technology in diagnostic imaging, which is why we offer 3-D mammography and just installed a new, state of the art MRI.

3-D Mammography 

  • Latest technology in breast cancer screening
  • Images are taken from different angles than a traditional 2-D mammogram, allowing doctors to examine breast tissue one layer at a time
  • Detects 40% more invasive cancers than 2-D mammography
  • Results in up to 40% fewer callbacks for rescreening
  • Exams use virtually the same radiation dose as 2-D mammography
  • Is proven to be the most superior screening for breast cancer

Bone Mineral Density (DEXA)
