Come visit our newly remodeled Mammography Suite at Central Texas Medical Center. A Spa-like atmosphere is provided, and our ladies are treated like you’d want us to treat your own mother. Your exam is performed on the GE Essential Digital Mammography System, offering the high quality imaging required for early detection.
Results are provided to your referring physician quickly. Unlike most other facilities, if our radiologist detects a suspicious finding, we will perform additional views and/or perform ultrasound images of the area before you leave rather than calling you to return for additional imaging. When breast cancer is detected in its earliest stages, the chance for successful treatment is much greater.
Breast cancer rates are second only to skin cancer among women. According to the American Cancer Society, women in good health should begin scheduling annual mammograms at the age of 40. This age can vary depending on family history of breast cancer.
Computer-Aided Detection (CAD)
We use “built-in” CAD, actually a component of the Digital Mammography system. It’s computer software that searches for abnormal areas of density, mass, or calcification that may indicate the presence of cancer. The CAD system highlights these areas on the images, alerting the radiologist to the need for further analysis.
