Women’s Imaging Image

There are a variety of woman’s imaging services available to patients. Whether you need a mammogram, bone density test, fetal imaging, or ultrasound, you will find our priority is providing you the best possible care, gently and professionally.

Some Women’s Imaging Procedures Include:

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Hormone replacement therapy, oral contraceptives and pregnancy are risk factors for DVT, the formation of a blood clot, known as a thrombus, in a deep leg vein. If DVT is untreated, it can break off and travel to the lungs, blocking the oxygen supply and triggering a heart attack. Your physician may order catheter-directed thrombolysis to break up the clot. This procedure threads a catheter through the veins to the clot, using imaging to guide the physician. A drug is then infused to that area, also pinpointed by radiology imaging. Angioplasty, stents, or vena cava filters may also be used.

Hysterosalpingography (HSG)

Hysterosalpingography (HSG) in an outpatient procedure in which a special iodine-containing dye is injected through the cervix. It flows into the uterine cavity and through the fallopian tubes. If the tubes are not blocked, the dye will spill out of the tubes into the abdomen, indicating no obstruction is present. One or more X-Rays are taken during the procedure to provide permanent record of the condition of the fallopian tubes and uterine cavity. The actual progress of dye flowing through the tubes can be followed on a fluoroscopy monitor. Usually, HSG is performed within the first ten days of the start of a normal menstrual period.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis affects 10 million Americans and is responsible for 700,000 vertebral fractures each year. The disease is symptomless until a fracture occurs; fractures can cause stopped posture, compression of the lungs and stomach, chronic pain, and loss of independence. In addition to bone scans to reveal the health of bone structures, we provide non-surgical vertebroplasty for relief from spinal pain.
