Mammograms screen for breast cancer, enabling diagnosis and treatment to begin while the cancer is still in an early stage. Women should consider getting their first mammogram at the age of 40. The frequency of screening depends on your age and your risk for developing breast cancer.
Women have access to the most advanced technology at The Association for Women’s Health Care, where we offer digital breast tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography. This system uses X-rays to rapidly take multiple pictures of the breast from many angles, all while placing less pressure on the breast and using less radiation.
Benefits of 3D mammography include:
Ultrasound uses sound waves to visualize organs and structures inside your body, which makes it safe for you and your baby. It’s commonly performed in the second trimester to assess the baby’s development and to determine the baby’s sex.
Ultrasound is also a vital tool for detecting problems with your uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, and bladder. Endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and ectopic pregnancies are just a few of the conditions that are diagnosed using ultrasound imaging.
The team at The Association for Women’s Health Care offers routine and advanced ultrasound, including 4D ultrasound, which creates a live video style image of the fetus using sound waves. Parents often elect to get a 4D ultrasound so they can see the baby’s movements and animation in the womb, but they can also be a helpful tool for your doctor to identify any irregularities (such as a cleft palate). This type of ultrasound is more advanced and requires the state-of-the-art equipment available on site. If you’re interested in getting a 4D ultrasound during your pregnancy, contact the team at The Association for Women’s Health Care.
