Click here to learn why mammograms are recommended for early detection of breast cancer. Mammography is still considered one of the best forms of protection against breast cancer because the machine can often detect breast cancer in the early stages when it is most likely to be treatable. The American Cancer Society recommends that women age 40 and older have a yearly mammogram.

 

Bone Density
We have a brand new GE Bone Density Unit, and we offer bone density testing Monday-Friday, 8 am to 3:30 pm by appointment.

Bone Density ScanningBone density tests screen for osteoporosis, a disease of the bones that weakens the bone structure and makes them more prone to breaking. It is recommended that people 65 and older have a bone density test, and all post-menopausal women below age 65 who have risk factors for osteoporosis.
Bone Density Studies utilize a dexa scanner to measure bone mass and provide doctors with information to treat osteoporosis adequately. If you use steroids, alcohol, have a family history of osteoporosis, early menopause, or are a smoker, you may be at risk for osteoporosis. Diagnosing these diseases helps doctors treat you with medication and sometimes recommend lifestyle changes.
