WOMEN’S HEALTH DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES

Women age 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year and should keep on doing so for as long as they are in good health. While mammograms can miss some cancers, they are still a very good way to find breast cancer. Diagnostic mammograms are used for women who have possible abnormalities that could indicate cancer or another breast health problem.

An ultrasound uses sound waves to outline a part of the body. The sound wave echoes are picked up by a computer to create a picture on a computer screen. Ultrasound is a good test to use along with mammograms because it is widely available and costs less than other tests. But ultrasound should not be used instead of mammograms. Usually, it is used to look at a certain area of concern found by the mammogram. It sometimes helps to tell the difference between cysts and solid masses (tumors) without using a needle to draw out fluid.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used to help diagnose and stage breast cancer. In addition to mammography, it is also used for women who are at very high risk for developing breast cancer. For certain women at high risk for breast cancer, screening MRI is recommended along with a yearly mammogram. It is not generally recommended as a screening tool by itself because it may miss some cancers that mammograms would find.

A biopsy is done when other tests show that you might have breast cancer. The only way to know for sure is to have a biopsy. During this test, cells from the area of concern are removed so they can be studied in the lab. There are several kinds of biopsies. The doctor will use the one best for you.
