Do you need a mammogram?

At UDI, we offer state-of-the-art Digital Mammography, which is the most technologically advanced technique used to image breast tissue. This system is similar to film-screen mammography, except that the image is recorded and stored in a computer. The images can then be enlarged or highlighted. Our facility is proud to offer Digital Mammography, which ensures that the patient receives lower radiation dosage(s), while the results display higher sensitivity to abnormalities and increased image quality.

Digital Mammogram Vs. Film Mammogram

Digital Mammography:

  • Screening and Diagnostic exams
  • Ability to penetrate dense breast with excellent resolution
  • "Standard" two interpretations with an accredited Radiologist and the CAD system
  • Experience the new "Smart Paddle" for painless compression
  • Schedule your exam within one week
  • Same day Ultrasound Appointments
  • Digital Mammography

Benefits of Digital Mammography:

  • LOWER RADIATION DOSES
  • HIGHER SENSITIVITY TO ABNORMALITIES
  • INCREASED IMAGE QUALITY

How to Prepare for your imaging:

Allow 30 minutes for the exam. Please indicate whether you have breast implants. You may want to wear a two-piece outfit so you can undress from the waist up. Donot use perfumes, oils, powders, or deodorants on or around the breast area the day of the exam. Caffeine can be avoided 24 hours prior to your exam to decrease the sensitivity of breast tissue. If you have has a previous mammogram, those films will be needed during your appointment for comparison purposes. Please make arrangements to bring them with you.

DEXA Scans:

DEXA, (Dual Energy X-ray Absorpitometry), is the most commonly used test for measuring bone mineral density. It is one of the most accurate ways to diagnosis Osteopenia or Osteoporosis.

Who should be tested?

The National Osteoporosis Foundation's guidelines state that all women over 65 should be tested, and also younger post menopausal women who have any of the common risk factors for osteoporosis.

Why do you need a DEXA Scan?

Osteoporosis is a common disease of the skeletal structure that causes a decrease in bone mass and density and can result in weakness and fracture in certain groups of individuals, especially post-menopausal women. One in three post-menopausal women, and one in eight men, can be affected due to aging. Other contributing factors to bone loss are: reduced physical activity, consumption of alcohol, smoking, chronic renal failure and steroid therapy.

Additionally, a woman's risk for hip fracture is equal to the combined risk of developing breast, uterine and ovarian cancer. Osteoporosis is a painful, debilitating disease which causes bones to become brittle. Often we are not aware of this until we fall and break a bone or there are signs of curvature of the spine, back pain and loss of height. When this occurs it may be too late.

How to Prepare for your imaging:

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your exam. On the day of the exam you may eat normally. You should not take calcium supplements for at least 24 hours before your exam. There are no other preparations necessary.
