Project Description

Women’s Health

Women’s health care isn’t a one size fits all approach. Your prevention and care programs can be unique to your needs to address specific issues and take steps to maintain well-being and optimal health. Our physicians and therapists will create a program and plan to improve energy, fight the signs of aging, promote lifestyle balance, achieve hormonal balance and address all aspects of well-being including physical, nutritional and emotional support.

Mammography

Breast mammography has become the standard breast screening tool in the detection and treatment of early stage breast cancers. Mammograms have significantly reduced breast cancer mortality in women.

ABUS (Automated Breast Ultrasound System)

ABUS (Automated Breast Ultrasound System) builds upon the advancements in screening and detection through 3D ultrasound by providing physicians with a 3D volumetric scan of a breast in less time. Radiologists and physicians can now digitally examine throughout all tissue layers from any angle. ABUS significantly increases scanning sensitivity versus traditional mammogram technology resulting in earlier detection success rates.

We combine our diagnostic and treatment programs with a holistic approach and expertise provided by our diagnostic and treatment physicians, surgeons, nurses, therapists and medical support staff through state of the art MRI, x-ray and ultrasound diagnostic equipment.
