Whether you need breast imaging or general ultrasounds, a bone density scan, breast care, a breast biopsy, or a digital mammography screening, we’re here for you.
A breast ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look inside your body and detect certain cancers, cysts, or masses. An ultrasound technician uses a sound-emitting probe to conduct the test. The sound waves travel through the breast, and then they are converted into images on a screen. The ultrasound exam can demonstrate whether a lump is a solid or a liquid filled mass such as a cyst. Studies have shown that having a breast ultrasound with an annual mammogram can find more small cancers than a mammogram alone.
According to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Society of Breast Surgeons, and the American College of Radiology, women over the age of 40 or those with a family history should have a digital mammogram once a year. ImageCare accepts self-referred and self-requesting patients, so no prescription is needed for your annual screening digital mammogram and breast ultrasound with dense breast tissue. ImageCare is the radiology center to visit for your digital mammography in Paterson, NJ. The advantage of this type of digital mammography is that it directs a low dose X-ray through the breast which means that patients are exposed to very little radiation.
