Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths in women, and the disease will affect an average of one in eight women during her lifetime. Osteoporosis is another common condition among women—they are more likely to develop the disease—and it affects more than 10 million adults, especially after age 50, in the U.S. Because we know that early detection leads to more effective treatment, we use the most advanced diagnostic techniques available to detect these diseases, and then use that information to develop a treatment plan that is right for each woman.
Our diagnostic services include the latest 3D mammography, digital mammography, ultrasound, breast biopsy and DXA bone densitometry. Our technologists, who are certified by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists and have additional certification in mammography, perform all mammograms at the WHS Women’s Center. Our fellowship-trained technicians also have extensive training specific to women’s imaging and mammography.
