3D Mammography or Digital breast tomosynthesis
We have chosen the best 3D mammography system for your patients, one that supports a more reliable diagnosis and reduces the need for callbacks. Mammomat Inspiration with True Breast Tomosynthesis is the wide-angle option that helps us to be sure of diagnostic accuracy. Why go wide?
Because the width of the angle and the number of projections determine the quality of the resulting 3D image. Our wide-angle tomosynthesis acquires 25 images of the breast across a 50° angle, resulting in better depth resolution and tissue layer separation – and increased breast cancer detection rates.
A diagnostic mammography is an x-ray exam that is performed when an abnormality is discovered during a mammogram. This exam is utilized to identify the size and location of the lesion. A diagnostic mammography may also help determine if the abnormality is benign or cancerous.
Dr. Shetty understands the stress patients face during this time and strives to offer appointments within 1-2 business days. All results will be thoroughly discussed with the patient following the exam. Woman’s Clinic uses the latest techniques and technology to perform all exams and procedures.
The breast ultrasound is a noninvasive exam that can be used to view lumps or any abnormalities that may not be seen in mammograms and other breast exams. There is no radiation involved in this exam and it is ideal for younger or pregnant patients. It is often used in place of a diagnostic mammography.
For patients with an elevated risk for breast cancer, the breast ultrasound exam can be used as a supplement to mammography. The ultrasound exam can easily find smaller lesions not typically found in clinical exams. The breast ultrasound can be combined with other exams to pinpoint and evaluate lesions.
Minimally Invasive Breast Biopsy
Dr. Shetty utilizes a state-of-the-art ultrasound or stereotactic guidance to perform a breast biopsy procedure. A minimally invasive biopsy is often the first approach to an abnormality in place of a surgical approach. The biopsy is performed at Woman’s Clinic as an outpatient procedure. Patients will be carefully placed under local anesthesia in preparation for the biopsy.
The procedure will help determine if the abnormality is cancerous. Dr. Shetty will educate the patient on all treatment options. The entire Woman’s Clinic staff is dedicated to creating a safe and comfortable environment for all patients.
A gynecological ultrasound, also known as a pelvic ultrasound, is utilized to diagnose symptoms in pelvic organs and structures. The exam uses high-frequency sound waves to create a clear image of the pelvic area. The ultrasound exam helps accurately diagnose and manage pelvis symptoms. Pelvic ultrasounds may be performed if pelvic abnormalities are found.
Dr. Shetty will identify the size and location of the abnormality. There is no radiation used in the gynecological ultrasound exam. The pelvic ultrasound can be used in place of an invasive surgical procedure. Dr. Shetty utilizes the most advanced equipment to perform all exams at Woman’s Clinic.
