When a doctor recommends an MRI scan, the first question you'll need to ask yourself is where you want to get your imaging procedure done- a hospital or an outpatient imaging center. Where you decide to go for your procedure is an important decision and can vary from patient to patient. When it comes to an imaging center, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible, but we know it may not be the right decision in your effort to heal. There are various benefits to each so we are here to provide you with the tools to make the best decision.
Women have different needs when it comes to diagnostic imaging. Because of the types of diseases and conditions that are more commonly found in women, there are imaging procedures that are specific to those diseases. In this article, we’ll talk about the three most common imaging procedures for women, including how they work, what to expect, and where to go to get the procedure.
Mammography is a woman’s best shot at early detection for breast cancer. Mammograms can often detect cancer in the breast years before it would present any symptoms.
A mammogram, put simply, is […]
Mammograms are the most popular women's imaging scan, but certain factors may infer that another imaging scan may be best. For women that are at higher risk or with dense breasts, alternative women's imaging methods like ultrasound has proven to be best according to various studies. Let's take a closer look at why ultrasound is often best when screening dense breasts.
During the month of October, many women find themselves asking this question…and no, it’s not to their husbands! Breast density is rated on a 1-4 scale (4 being the most dense) “using the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) of the American College of Radiology,” and out of all women, about half fall into categories 3 and 4.
What makes dense breasts dense?
Remember breasts are not just for catching the attention of the cute guy across the bar or to drain your wallet with expensive bras; they’re glands, and their primary use is to produce milk.
The fibro-glandular tissue surrounding the milk-producing […]
“The California law mandates written notification to women, after screening mammography, of their tissue density and the need to discuss screening options with their primary care physicians.” When about 50% of women who have a screening have dense breasts, it’s certainly important to understand how that affects the results of that screening.
Most women respond with: “What do I do now?” or “Does this mean that I am likely to get breast cancer?” The answers, respectively, are: talk with your doctor, and no. The whole idea behind offering patients this information is to start the discussion to create an individualized plan […]
This week, we want to shine a spotlight on our friends at Garden OB/GYN in Manhattan. Their Manhattan office is located at: 220 East 63rd Street New York, NY 10065
As we welcome November, it’s important to remember that Breast Cancer Awareness Month should be every month.
Even two girls, ages 12 and 13, understood the importance of breast cancer awareness when they challenged the school’s band on the, now popular, I (heart) Boobies! bracelets.
The case was taken all the way to the Supreme Court, who agreed that the bracelets weren’t disruptive but supportive.

The new procedure is an MRI device that targets sodium levels instead of the usual proton images.
Malignant tumors are thought to have an increase in sodium concentrations, so by looking for that, these new procedures are already five-times more accurate than other efforts with different exams.
While X-Ray Mammograms are still the number one procedure, it’s not as efficient with dense breasts, and it’s also very […]
