Mammography / Woman's Imaging
Mammography is an X-ray of the breasts performed to detect breast tumors when they are too small to be detected by physical examination. These small tumors can be the first finding of early-stage breast cancer. Our subspecialized radiologists interpret approximately 20,000 mammograms, 3,000 breast ultrasounds and perform approximately 1,000 interventional procedures annually.

American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Radiological Society
of North America (RSNA).
The subdivision of woman’s imaging encompasses the subspecialties of Breast Imaging, obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound, bone densitometry (DEXA), and pelvic MRI. Images are obtained by female technologists with particular attention to patient comfort and privacy.
