Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system for examination of the breast. Mammography plays a central role in the early detection of breast cancers because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before you might actually feel the lump in your breast.
Garden Park Medical Center’s full field digital mammography uses computers and specially designed digital detectors to produce an image that can be displayed on a high resolution computer monitor and transmitted and stored just like computer files. The digital image allows the radiologist to manipulate the image to adjust the brightness, change contrast, and zoom in for close ups of specific areas of interest.
In conjunction with the digital mammography unit, Garden Park Medical Center also offers the Computer-Aided Detection. CAD provides a “second read” of the mammogram by the computer. This assists the radiologist in making an accurate diagnosis.
