Digital Mammogram

The Hologic Selenia Mammography System is one of the most advanced systems available today. It is also one of the most powerful diagnostic tools for the early detection of breast cancer.

The benefits include:

  • Life-saving early detection, effective diagnosis, intervention and treatment
  • Reduced radiation dosage to the patient, while maintaining superb image quality and contrast
  • RD™ ImageChecker® CAD (computer-aided detection) identifies regions of interest on an image and brings them to the attention of the radiologist

Understanding the basics of mammography.

Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose X-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. There are two kinds of mammograms that we offer at Premier Imaging:

Screening Mammography

A screening mammogram plays a central part in early detection of breast cancers because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before you or your physician can feel them.

Diagnostic Mammography

A diagnostic mammogram is used to evaluate anyone with abnormal clinical findings, such as a breast lump that has been found by you or your doctor. Diagnostic mammography may also be done after an abnormal screening mammogram, in order to evaluate the area of concern on the screening exam.
