Women's Imaging

To provide greater privacy and convenience for women, our women’s imaging center is located near our X-ray department and offers specialized diagnostic services including 3D mammography, pelvic and breast ultrasound and bone density testing. Diagnostic tests can create anxiety. That’s why our center offers a calming environment, as well as a separate entrance so women can conveniently come and go. For women who find out they have an abnormal mammogram, we also have a breast health navigator on staff to answer questions and provide support in case a breast biopsy is needed.

much like an X-ray movie. It is used to diagnose or treat patients by displaying the movement of a body part, instrument or contrast agent through the body. During the procedure, an X-ray beam is passed through the body and the image is transmitted to a monitor so the body part and its motion can be seen in detail. Fluoroscopy may be used during barium studies, catheter insertion, blood flow studies and orthopedic surgery.





of the inside of your body. These radioactive materials are introduced into the body by injection, swallowing or inhalation and are attracted to specific organs, bones or tissues. As the material travels through your body, radioactive emissions are produced and detected by a special camera that records them on a screen. Nuclear medicine is unique because it documents function as well as structure. Nuclear medicine procedures are performed to assess the function of nearly every organ. Common nuclear medicine procedures include thyroid studies, brain scans, bone scans, lung scans, cardiac stress tests, and liver and gallbladder procedures.


This scan is especially useful for cancer patients because it can determine the spread of certain cancers, how well the cancer is responding to treatment and any possible recurrence. In one continuous full-body scan, which usually averages about 30 minutes, PET can detect changes in the body’s metabolism caused by the growth of abnormal cells, while CT simultaneously pinpoints the exact size, shape and location of diseased tissue. When receiving a PET/CT scan, the process begins with a radioactive glucose injection into the bloodstream. You must wait 30-60 minutes for the radioactive substance to be absorbed by the organ or tissue to be imaged. During the scan, you lie on a table that moves incrementally through a scanner shaped like a giant doughnut. The test itself is painless, but you must lie very still or the images will be blurred. The scanner then produces digital images which create a 3-D image.


within your body. Most ultrasounds are done using a device outside of your body, though some exams involve placing a device inside your body. Ultrasounds are typically used to evaluate a fetus or the abdomen and pelvis, evaluate flow in blood vessels, guide a biopsy, check your thyroid gland and study your heart. During an ultrasound, you lie on an exam table and a small amount of gel is applied to your skin. The technician presses a small hand-held device against your skin over the area of your body being examined, moving from one area to another. Ultrasound is usually a painless procedure and a typical exam takes 30-60 minutes.


used to take pictures of bones, teeth, lungs, breasts, the heart, blood vessels and digestive tract. During an X-ray, you won’t be able to feel a thing, but you will have to hold still and hold your breath so the technologist can get a clear image. Although X-ray beams expose you to small doses of radiation, the benefits far outweigh the risks. After an X-ray you can usually resume normal activities and should not experience any side effects.
