We Have Digital Mammography
At the Breast Health Center, your health means everything to us. That is why we invested in digital mammography – to make sure our patients have the most advanced technologies and treatments to fight cancer. A recent landmark study has proven digital mammography especially effective for:
- Women under 50
- Women who are pre-menopausal or in its beginning stages
- Women with dense breasts
Please review our digital mammography brochure for more information on the advantages of this state-of-the-art technology.
Mammopad for your comfort
We make an extra effort to help ensure your comfort during a mammogram by offering the soft assistance of Mammopad. This foam-like breast pillow reduces the discomfort of compression during a mammogram while still providing high-quality X-rays.
When it is necessary to examine breast tissue microscopically, we can perform minimally invasive procedures, which heal quicker with less scarring:
- Stereotactic breast biopsy
- Ultrasound-guided breast biopsy
Bone Density Screening
Osteoporosis is a gradual thinning and weakening of bones, which can lead to bone fractures. Over 28 million Americans, 80 percent of them women, have, or are at risk of developing, this condition. Osteoporosis researches are making important new advances daily. Key to this success is the availability of new and improved equipment to measure bone density, Inova Mount Vernon Hospital provides a bone densitometry test.
