Women's Imaging Center
The Women's Imaging Center at Trinitas Regional Medical Center was created to focus on meeting the special health care needs of women in our community.

Our new, technologically advanced, FDA-approved and MQSA (Mammography Quality Standards Act) certified facility provides the services - mammography, stereotactic needle biopsy, ultrasound and bone densitometry - that are essential in addressing women's concerns.

The staff in the Women's Imaging Center has had specialized training in this field. They will work with you and your physician to provide services in a comfortable and professional environment.

At The Women's Imaging Center we don't just perform procedures; we provide our patients with the information they need to manage their health.

Mammography is one of the easiest, safest, and most reliable procedures for examining the breast. It is a procedure that has become an integral part of a women's healthcare regimen.

Screening mammography is an X-ray exam of the breasts designed to detect breast lumps when they're too small to be detected by physical examination. These small lumps can indicate early-stage breast cancer. Size of the cancer at the time of diagnosis is one of the most important predictors of outcome. Screening mammography can lead to the finding and treatment of breast cancer in its earliest and most curable stage, nearly one to three years before you might actually feel the lump in your breast.

Stereotactic Biopsy
If a radiologist detects an abnormality in your breast tissue, a biopsy may be needed. A stereotactic biopsy uses x-rays and computer imaging to localize areas of concern and extract a small sample of tissue for analysis. This nonsurgical procedure is completed on an outpatient basis with a minimum of discomfort and recovery time.

The Women's Center at Trinitas also performs diagnostic ultrasound imaging. Ultrasound is used for imaging various organs in the body and is also used for ultrasound guided breast biopsy. Ultrasound guided breast biopsies are performed when x-rays are unable to visualize an area of the breast that needs a biopsy procedure. Ultrasound is a painless procedure that uses no radiation.

Bone Densitometry (DEXA)
Bone densitometry is a procedure used to diagnosis osteopenia and osteoporosis, both of which are conditions resulting from loss of bone mass. Special measurements are taken of several areas of the body, usually the hip and spine, and are then analyzed using special computerized software.
