The radiology services at Mercy Imaging Services in Lebanon, MO includes bone densitometry and advanced computerized tomography (CAT Scan) for greater patient comfort, safety, faster exam times and improved image quality for speedier diagnosis; magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); mammography; nuclear medicine; ultrasound with Doppler and traditional x-ray. Our CAD unit helps locate and diagnose questionable areas on a mammogram x-ray.
A 3D mammogram takes only a few seconds longer than a regular mammogram. During both scans, the breast is compressed between two plates to obtain the images. However, during a 3D mammogram, the scan takes a series of x-rays of the breast from different angles. The computer then digitally recreates the breast, and radiologists can view “slices” of the image one at a time, making it easier to see and evaluate possible abnormalities. With a 3D monogram, a radiologist can use the image slices to better differentiate cancer from glandular tissue. This leads to better cancer detection and fewer callbacks for additional testing.
