Our services and procedures
Our staff utilize the region's leading radiology and diagnostic equipment to offer a wide range of women's services to get you detailed results.
Mammography exams – or mammograms – use low-dose X-ray technology to see the inside of the breast. Mammograms are one of the most effective methods for early breast cancer detection.
Women over 40 should get a mammogram each year, unless otherwise instructed by their doctor.
The Indian Path women's center offers 3D mammography, which is more accurate than traditional mammography technology.
- Clearer images
- Greater confidence in the results
- Fewer false positives
Our office welcomes walk-in appointments for screening mammograms daily.
Ultrasounds – or sonograms – use sound waves to produce images of structures within your body.
Breast ultrasounds utilize sonography to look inside the breast.
- Allows your physician to check blood flow and detect abnormalities (such as cysts)
- Often used alongside a mammogram when a change is seen or felt in the breast

Your physician will only ever recommend imaging tests and scans that are necessary for making the most accurate diagnosis possible.
