Digital Mammography

Doctors Memorial was one of the first hospitals in the region to invest in digital mammography. We have a friendly staff ready to perform your mammograms and other related studies if needed. Thanks to advances in imaging and treatment, early detection can significantly increase the odds of leading a normal, healthy life.

Bone Densitometry

Making sure you have healthy bones is a big priority for Doctors Memorial Hospital. Our Bone Densitometry unit gives great detail to the doctors regarding bone and tissue densities, which is essential in reducing the incidence of hip fractures.

3D Mammography with Tomosynthesis & Contrast-Enhanced Mammography

Doctors Memorial offers the latest breast cancer detection technology with tomosynthesis and contrast-enhanced mammography.

Tomosynthesis, also known as 3-D mammography, provides a better look at the breast than traditional testing. Tomosynthesis takes a series of images while rotating around the breast, giving doctors the ability to examine the area in “slices.”

Traditionally, providers have used 2-D images to look for breast cancer. This can cause problems when cancers are hidden by overlapping normal tissue. Tomosynthesis eliminates this issue by displaying the breast in slices and allowing providers to see any abnormalities.

Traditional 2-D screening mammography also has well-known limitations that require some women to come back for extra testing to rule out cancer. Tomosynthesis reduces the number of women who are called back for what ultimately turns out to be non-cancerous findings.

Doctors Memorial is now the first rural hospital in the panhandle of Florida to offer contrast-enhanced mammography. This procedure uses a contrast injection similar to MRI to detect cancer.

Contrast-enhanced mammography is especially beneficial to women who have dense breast tissue and those with a family or personal history of breast cancer. Next to MRI, contrast-enhanced mammography is the most sensitive test available for detection of breast cancer because it lights-up tumors.

Contrast-enhanced mammography is test that has many of the advantages of breast MRI, including high sensitivity for cancer and a lower rate of false-positive results, compared with mammograms and breast ultrasound. It is also less expensive than standard breast MRI and takes less time.
