DSC_0058 (1)DSC_0046 (1)DSC_0063 (3)DSC_0044DSC_0040 (1)Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center’s (BMHMC) Women’s Imaging – an American College of Radiology (ACR) Accredited Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) — has relocated, moving from Sills Road to 100 Hospital Road across from the hospital’s main campus. From bone density to digital mammography to 3D X-rays and ultrasound, the certified radiology technologists at Women’s Imaging produce high quality images, creating a visual record and documentation of patient health, while aiding medical personnel in diagnosis and intervention procedures when necessary.
100 Hospital Road is also home to the Brookhaven Breast Cancer Survivorship Coalition and the location for regularly scheduled support group gatherings.in a comfortable setting and with an expert staff that is both caring and compassionate, Women’s Imaging provides patients with the highest-quality imaging services.
• Digital Mammography, a completely noninvasive exam that utilizes low-dose radiation to produce high-quality, detailed images of the breast. Mammography can often detect breast cancer before it is felt.
• 3D Breast Tomosynthesis. Using high-powered computers, breast images are converted into a stack of very thin “slices” – building what is essentially a 3-D mammogram. The X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple images in just seconds. Fine details are more clearly visible, no longer hidden by the tissue above and/or below.
• Stereotactic Biopsies, which are most useful when mammography shows a mass, cluster of microcalcifications (tiny grouped calcium deposits), or an area of abnormality, but no lump can be felt.
• Sonography, an imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to outline specific areas of the breast.
• Ultrasound Guided Core Biopsies, which involves removing small samples of breast tissue using a hollow “core” needle and ultrasound. The samples are examined under a microscope to detect the presence of cancer cells.
• Breast MRI, a painless procedure that uses radio waves and powerful magnets linked to a computer to create detailed images of areas inside the body without using radiation.
• Bone Density (DEXA) examinations, the gold standard for measuring the density of your bones to evaluate bone strength and the potential for bone fractures and osteoporosis.
