Mammography is the process of using low-energy X-rays to create images of the internal tissues of the human breast — a mammogram. The images are used as a diagnostic and screening tool to assess masses. A specialized x-ray machine compresses the breast to give a more thorough and accurate capture of the dense breast tissue. The goal of mammography is early detection of breast cancer, ideally as early as two years before a lump can be felt on a manual exam.
We offer screening and diagnostic mammography as well. A screening mammogram is a wellness exam that is covered annually by most insurance plans. It is recommended that women 40 years and older have a screening mammogram performed annually. If you are 40 years of age and are without symptoms, call your local Touchstone mammography site to schedule your screening mammogram. You DO NOT need an order from your primary care physician for a screening mammogram, however, Touchstone requires a treating physician to send your screening mammogram results to.
3D mammography, or tomosynthesis, is an advanced x-ray technology that takes multiple images of breast tissue to create a 3-dimensional picture of the breast. It differs from traditional mammography in that traditional mammography yields only a single image. A 3D image of the breast allows for better assessment of masses and reduces the likelihood of a false positive or an unnecessary biopsy.
2D & 3D Bone Density
Bone density scanning, also called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) or bone densitometry, is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss, also known as osteoporosis. Because calcium in bones more readily accepts radio absorption, a bone scan easily identifies weakened areas and can measure the amount of calcium and other minerals in your bones and can detect stress fractures.
