A screening mammogram is an x-ray of the breast used to detect breast changes in women who have NO signs or symptoms of breast cancer.
A diagnostic mammogram is an x-ray of the breast that is used to diagnose unusual breast changes such as a lump, pain, thickening, nipple discharge or a change in breast size or shape.
Ultrasounds (Breast, Obstetrics and Babygram)
Ultrasound has been used in medicine since the early 1950s, but has been continually improved with new technology. Medical ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves which are considered painless and harmless to both mother and fetus. Ultrasound examinations are performed for a variety of reasons.
Ultrasound, also called sonography, is an imaging technique in which high-frequency sound waves that cannot be heard by humans are bounced off tissues and internal organs. Their echoes produce a picture called a sonogram. Ultrasound imaging of the breast is used to distinguish between solid tumors and fluid-filled cysts. It is also used to characterize the nature of solid masses. Ultrasound can also be used to evaluate lumps that are hard to see on a mammogram. Ultrasound is often used as part of other diagnostic procedures, such as needle biopsy or aspiration.
Obstetrical (OB) Ultrasounds
Obstetrical ultrasounds have become useful in many ways. Its routine use is necessary to provide you with the best prenatal care. Most commonly, ultrasound examinations are done during pregnancy to help your doctor determine when your baby is due and to make sure the baby is developing as he/she should.
A Babygram is an ultrasound of your unborn baby done between 20 and 30 weeks of gestation. This can let you know the sex of the baby as well as give you images to take home and a CD (disk) of the new addition to your family.
DEXA - Bone Density and Body Composition Scanning (Body Fat Test)
Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry, DEXA is the most accurate and advanced test available for measuring bone density (strength) and is considered today's established standard for bone mineral density (BMD). A DEXA scan measures bone density by using an enhanced form of x-ray scanning technology.. JCMH Women's Imaging offers three modalities specifically for the needs and comfort of women.
