At Clear Medical Imaging, we offer a variety of diagnostic imaging services that cater to women’s health and wellness. Our Women’s Imaging services range from preventative cancer screening to reproductive health imaging, and many in between.
Mammograms are x-rays of the breasts, and they are used to detect the early stages of breast cancer in women with no symptoms, as well as to diagnose breast cancer in women who are experiencing symptoms. Different from traditional film-based mammography, digital mammography produces images more efficiently and effectively. Digital images can be adjusted and enlarged to make them easier to interpret.
Breast ultrasounds are pain-free and non-invasive. They are often requested as a follow-up procedure to give a more conclusive diagnosis when a mammogram, breast MRI or breast exam has detected something abnormal.
A sonohysterogram is an ultrasound procedure that allows the radiologist to better evaluate the cavity and lining of the uterus. A sterile saline solution is injected into the uterine cavity, and ultrasound images are then taken of the pelvis and uterus. The use of fluid offers more detail to the image than when ultrasound is used on its own.
Sonohysterograms are often used for fertility purposes, or to help identify the cause of irregular bleeding.
If there is a possibility that you may be pregnant, inform the receptionist and technologist BEFORE your exam.
Ultrasound exams are safe and pain-free, with no known harmful effects on the mother or baby. It is the preferred method of monitoring the development and growth of a fetus during pregnancy.
Images are reviewed by one of our radiologists for interpretation. Results are sent to your Health Care Provider and you will be able to discuss the results of your exam with them.
