Tests & Treatments

  • Biopsy
    A biopsy is a procedure performed to remove tissue or cells from the body for examination under a microscope.

  • Breast Ultrasound
    A breast ultrasound is typically recommended when your screening mammograms have shown something suspicious, and your physician needs a better look to make an accurate diagnosis.

  • DEXA Scan
    DEXA scans use special X-rays to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone to detect osteoporosis.

  • MRI
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Mammogram
    Using digital technology, our physicians are able to obtain images of the breast that are of higher contrast and show finer detail to allow for more thorough evaluations.
