Advanced Breast Imaging

Early detection is an important factor in the successful treatment of breast cancer. Mammograms aid in early detection and are recommended by the American Cancer Society for women every year starting at age 40. Rex Healthcare utilizes the latest breast-imaging technologies, including:

  • Digital Mammograms – Used as a screening tool to detect breast cancer in women with no symptoms, or to diagnose cancer after other symptoms are found.
  • 3D Breast Tomosynthesis Mammography (3D mammograms) – Used in addition to or as a follow-up to a 2D mammogram to detect breast cancer in women with no symptoms, or to diagnose cancer after other symptoms are found.
  • Breast Ultrasound (Breast Sonography) – Used in addition to or as a follow-up to a mammogram, allowing radiologists to see if a lump is a solid mass or a fluid-filled cyst.
  • Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Used in addition to a mammogram for women with a high risk of breast cancer or to help doctors get more information after a breast cancer diagnosis; also used to evaluate breast implants.

When you get a mammogram at Rex Healthcare, we’ll also  provide information on your breast density. More than 40 percent of women have dense breast tissue, which can make cancer more difficult to detect.
