Breast imaging services
We provide the most advanced technology available, including 3D mammography, and clinical accuracy that comes from a dedicated focus on breast specialization. Our experts deliver increased image specificity, exceptionally accurate results, and a reduction in unnecessary recalls.
At Solis Mammography, a department of The Woman's Hospital of Texas, we provide full range of breast screening and diagnostic services such as:
Considered the most advanced technology in screening and diagnostic mammography, 3D mammography allows doctors to examine breast tissue by layer. Rather than viewing breast tissue in a flat image, as with 2D mammography, this type of imaging reveals the fine details that previously could be hidden by the tissue above or below.
3D Mammography has been proven to detect abnormalities 15 months earlier than a standard mammogram. Research also shows that 3D mammograms can increase early cancer detection rates and decrease call backs.
This two-dimensional pictures of the breast and is still one of the most advanced tools available for detecting breast abnormalities. A screening mammogram is a two-dimensional pictures of the breast and used to detect breast tumors in women who have no symptoms of breast cancer. A screening mammogram's purpose is to detect tumors that are too deep/small to be detected any other way.
When a patient's screening mammogram requires further evaluation, a diagnostic mammogram is in order. The diagnostic evaluation serves as the next step to clarify any abnormalities detected during a screening mammogram or doctor's exam.
Ultrasound-guided biopsy and stereotactic biopsy are advanced techniques that allow physicians to quickly and accurately get samples of breast tissue for evaluation after there has been a suspicious finding on a diagnostic mammogram. Stereotactic biopsy uses a combination of mammography and minimally invasive techniques to get samples of tiny calcifications or spots in the breast. Ultrasound-guided biopsy enables surgeons to get a sample of breast tissue as small as your fingernail with high accuracy.
A radiation-free technique, breast ultrasounds generate images through sound waves. They can help distinguish normal breast tissue from a fluid-filled cyst or a solid mass that appears on a mammogram. Ultrasounds are typically used in conjunction with mammography; however, they do not replace mammography. It is not a screening method for breast cancer, but rather a diagnostic tool.
Bone density testing is available and helps determine the risk for osteoporosis. Screening involves an X-ray scan which can determine whether or not bones are starting to thin before a bone is broken. Physicians and patients can then determine their best plan of action to slow or reverse the process.
In addition, breast MRI is performed in the hospital’s main imaging department. Screening mammograms are also available through Solis Mammography at Woman's Health - Angleton. Appointments take typically less than 30 to 40 minutes and screening results are emailed within 24 to 48 hours of the visit. Appointments can be scheduled online or by calling (866) 257-6884.
The Woman's Hospital of Texas also provides breast surgery rehabilitation and physical therapy services for women who are recovering from breast cancer surgery.
