A mammogram is a specialized X-ray test of the breasts used to screen for breast problems, such as a lump, and whether a lump is fluid-filled or a solid mass.
A mammogram is done to help screen for or detect breast cancer. Many small tumors can be seen on a mammogram before they can be felt by a woman or her doctor. Cancer is most easily treated and cured when it is discovered in an early stage. Mammograms do not prevent breast cancer or reduce a woman's risk of developing cancer. But regular mammograms can reduce a woman's risk of dying from breast cancer by detecting a cancer when it is more easily treated. The mammography is read by a radiologist who determines if there is an abnormality.
All Mammogram services are regulated by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).
With wide-angle 3D mammography, breast cancer has no place to hide. Good things happen when we take a wider view. What was indistinguishable comes into focus. Boice-Willis now has 3D mammography to see breast tissue better.
Breast ultrasound is a non-invasive test that is used to create images of the breast tissue. Breast ultrasound is used as a follow up test to an abnormal mammogram or to determine whether a lump is a cyst or a solid mass.
A bone density test determines if you have osteoporosis — a disease that causes bones to become more fragile and more likely to break. A bone density test uses X-rays to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone.
