Our breast screening services
The Solis Mammography Center, a department of HCA Houston Kingwood, offers a full range of breast imaging and related tests for the diagnosis and treatment of cancers in women.
Considered the most advanced technology in screening and diagnostic mammography, 3D mammography allows doctors to examine breast tissue by layer. Rather than viewing breast tissue in a flat image, as with 2D mammography, this type of imaging reveals the fine details that previously could be hidden by the tissue above or below.
3D Mammography has been proven to detect abnormalities 15 months earlier than a standard mammogram. Research also shows that 3D mammograms can increase early cancer detection rates and decrease callbacks.
This two-dimensional pictures of the breast and is still one of the most advanced tools available for detecting breast abnormalities. A screening mammogram is a two-dimensional pictures of the breast and used to detect breast tumors in women who have no symptoms of breast cancer. A screening mammogram's purpose is to detect tumors that are too deep/small to be detected any other way.
When a patient's screening mammogram requires further evaluation, a diagnostic mammogram is in order. The diagnostic evaluation serves as the next step to clarify any abnormalities detected during a screening mammogram or doctor's exam.
This test uses sound waves to produce an image of breast tissue. It is most commonly used following a mammogram to evaluate a specific area of concern. The American Cancer Society does NOT recommend its use alone as a screening tool (e.g., instead of a mammogram).
Stereotactic and ultrasound-guided breast biopsies
These advanced techniques allow the physicians to quickly and accurately get samples of breast tissue for evaluation after there has been a suspicious finding on a diagnostic mammogram. Stereotactic biopsy uses a combination of mammography and minimally invasive techniques to get samples of tiny calcifications or spots in the breast. Ultrasound-guided biopsy enables surgeons to get a sample of breast tissue as small as your fingernail with high accuracy.
Bone density screening
Bone density testing is available and helps determine the risk for osteoporosis. Screening involves an X-ray scan which can determine whether or not bones are starting to thin before a bone is broken. Physicians and patients can then determine their best plan of action to slow or reverse the process.
