As you age, your uniquely female health needs change. If you are trying to start a family, specially trained radiologists can help you identify any physical limitations or fertility problems through diagnostic imaging tests. We offer specialty procedures including hysterosalpingography, which can show whether the fallopian tubes are obstructed or if there is scarring, a mass or uterine fibroids.
Once you are pregnant, we provide the latest in obstetric ultrasound, a safe, painless way to monitor the baby’s growth and development. We also use Doppler ultrasound when needed to assess blood flow in the umbilical cord or placenta.
A hysterosonogram or HSN is also known by the names sonohysterogram, saline ultrasound, saline sonogram, or saline infusion sonogram. A hysterosonogram is a minimally invasive ultrasound procedure that can determine if there are abnormalities inside the uterus that might interfere with pregnancy.
When you reach 40, it’s time to discuss mammography screening for breast cancer with your doctor. We’re committed to offering the latest in breast imaging services.
After menopause or if you have significant risk factors, your doctor may recommend a bone mineral density scan (DXA) to get a baseline reading of your bone mass. This X-ray-based technology can diagnose osteoporosis and monitor treatment.
At any age, you may experience abnormal bleeding or pelvic pain. Procedures we offer include:
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) — MRI uses a strong magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce images of tissues and organs in great detail. Because radiation is not required, MRI may be used for pregnant women in place of CT and other imaging modalities.
- Transvaginal Ultrasound — Performed like a pelvic exam in which a very small transducer is inserted several inches into the vagina to better view the endometrium, uterus and ovaries, enabling the detection of abnormalities, scars, polyps, fibroids and cancer.
- Ovarian Vein Embolization — A minimally invasive treatment for a painful condition called pelvic congestion syndrome, where a damaged vein is closed off via a catheter and coils inserted by an interventional radiologist.
Our priority is to get you in for the earliest possible appointment. We offer convenient scheduling through our Central Scheduling for Diagnostics service.
