Did you know that during a woman’s life, her breasts change? Hormones, pregnancy, and menopause trigger those changes in breast tissue–both physically and microscopically. That’s why regular check-ups and mammograms are recommended throughout a woman’s life. Premier Diagnostic Imaging recommends that all women receive annual mammogram beginning at age 40. This recommendation is endorsed by the American College of Radiology, the Society of Breast Imaging and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. The Premier Center for Women provides several breast care and whole-body services that aid in early cancer diagnosis and help provide for your overall health.
Breast health is an important element of your all-around health and wellness. Early breast cancer detection is essential to faster treatment and better prognosis. Premier offers a variety of tests that support breast health, such as:
Our Genius 3D Mammography exam with SmartCurve technology provides a more accurate and more comfortable exam. Don’t put off your mammogram because you’re worried about pain.
Precise, ultrasound-guided vacuum assisted core needle biopsy utilizes a needle and vacuum assistance to collect small amounts of breast tissue. Our biopsies are performed on an outpatient basis by a board certified physician.
This method causes minimal discomfort due to numbing agents used before and during the procedure. The entire biopsy procedure is completed within 15 to 30 minutes.
Also called sonography. this technique uses sound waves to take pictures inside the body, especially soft tissues. Ultrasound is ideal for gynecological and obstetrical imaging. It’s commonly used to examine babies during pregnancy, but is also useful for breast ultrasounds and guiding breast biopsies.
As well as breast care, our outpatient imaging services offer women convenience when it comes to:
Otherwise known as bone density tests. This non-invasive test measures mineral density in bone to determine whether a woman is at risk for osteoporosis. They are recommended for all women over 65 years of age, women who broke a bone after 50 years of age and menopausal or post-menopausal women with contributing risk factors.
Also known as computerized tomography. CT scans are effective in creating cross-sectional images of body parts or organs in the body. These images provide more detailed information than a simple x-ray. Such scans also monitor disease processes.
A safe and painless type of imaging that uses a low dose radioactive agent to accurately visualize the flow and function of different organs of your body.
Magnetic resonance imaging is ideal for diagnosing injury or disease of soft tissues, bones and joints, as well as the nervous and cardiovascular system.
