The Latest Technology

Women & Infants is a Center of Breast Excellence, as designated by the American College of Radiology. We offer the latest technology for imaging the breasts, including:

  • Screening mammogram.
  • Diagnostic mammogram.
  • Needle localization.
  • Stereotactic breast biopsy.
  • Outside consultations.

In addition to standard mammograms, Women & Infants was the first facility in the state to offer the latest breast mammography technology, called digital breast tomosynthesis.

Tomosynthesis, which is now available in two Women & Infants locations, gives radiologists a three-dimensional look at breast tissue, versus the traditional two-dimensional images, which means they have a clearer and more comprehensive view. The result is a 15 percent increase in early detection of breast cancer and a reduction in false positives, which require further testing and cause you unnecessary anxiety.
