Women’s Imaging

At Southeast Georgia Health System, we offer specialized diagnostic services in a warm and caring environment.

Some of the services include:

Digital Mammography – Mammography is still the gold standard for early detection of breast cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends that every woman have an annual screening mammogram beginning at age 40. Diagnostic mammograms are used for women who have possible abnormalities that could indicate cancer or another breast health problem. 

Breast MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used to help diagnose and stage breast cancer. It is also sometimes used in addition to mammography, for women who are at very high risk for developing breast cancer.
 
Breast Biopsy – If diagnostic imaging techniques show abnormalities, a breast biopsy may be needed to determine if it is cancer. Several types of breast biopsy can be done by Imaging Services, including fine needle and core needle aspiration.  
 
Ultrasound – Also called sonography, ultrasound is a painless medical test that uses sound waves to show structure and movement inside the body. Breast ultrasound can help identify noncancerous growths and may also be used during breast biopsy. A pregnancy ultrasound shows how a baby is developing in the womb and pelvic ultrasounds can detect abnormalities in a woman’s bladder and reproductive system. 
 
DEXA Bone Density Scans – As women age, they become more at risk for developing osteoporosis, a disease that causes bones to become fragile and break easily. DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) is a state-of-the-art, painless, non-invasive examination that reveals early loss of bone mass so that treatment of osteoporosis can begin before a bone is broken.
