The Women’s Imaging Center' comprehensive services:
Full-field digital mammography (screening and diagnostic)
The digital mammography system takes less than half the time of traditional film-based exams, enables radiologists to review images immediately and offers greater detail for suspicious areas. Much like a digital photo, the images can be enhanced, manipulated, and improved by the radiologist, so a digital mammogram can provide more information for diagnosis.
All Digital Images
Mammography is critical to catching breast cancer in its earliest—and most treatable—stages. Touro offers all digital mammograms. Digital mammography is by far the superior option when it comes to mammograms. Digital mammograms are faster, more comfortable, clearer, uses less radiation and offer computer aided detection that is simply not possible with traditional mammography.
Bi-lateral breast MRI is the ‘gold standard’ in breast diagnostic testing. It’s faster because it scans both breasts at the same time, and it’s more accurate thanks to enhanced resolution technology.
The Women’s Imaging Center offers breast ultrasound to determine if a lump is a mass or a cyst and is especially helpful for women with dense breast tissue to detect cancers that do not show up on mammograms.
The GE Logiq 9 provides images with great detail and clarity, making finding and diagnosing small lesions and small body parts easier and more accurate for physicians.
DEXA bone densitometry
DEXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) is the latest most advanced method we've employed to characterize fracture risk in human bones. Older methods do not predict hip fractures as well as DEXA.
