monthly physical self-examinations are at the core of breast health,

The Latest Technology
Mammography is the first line of defense in the detection of breast
cancer. The Holloway Breast Health Center uses digital mammography,
which captures X-ray images of the breast and converts them to a
computerized display, providing greater clarity and reducing the need
for callbacks for additional images.
Our R2 ImageChecker System is a computer-aided detection system that
uses advanced software to analyze a mammogram and highlight
suspicious areas for the radiologist to review more closely. Use of this
system can aid in earlier detection of cancer, which is key to a better
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of breast
tissue. Ultrasound can often reveal whether a lump is filled with fluid
or is solid. High-resolution ultrasound provides superior detail for a
more accurate and complete analysis of breast abnormalities.
Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scanning, also known as bone
density scanning or bone densitometry, is a simple, painless procedure
that measures bone density, an accurate predictor for osteoporosis.
Since many women with a higher risk of breast cancer should not use
estrogen therapies for the treatment of osteoporosis, determining a risk
for bone weakness is important.
