Diagnostic Imaging is playing a more vital role in the healthcare needs of women. Mountain States Health Alliance offers a range of testing and diagnostic services for women in convenient and private settings. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and highly trained and caring staff assist radiologists in obtaining diagnostic information that will enable your personal physician to make decisions regarding your care. Our diagnostic services for women include: Digital Mammography, Stereotactic Biopsy, Bone Density Testing and Ultrasound.

Services

  • Bone Density Test - DXA.
  • Breast Ultrasound. A technique using sound waves that can show whether a breast lump is a fluid-filled cyst or a solid mass.
  • Digital Mammography with CAD. Digital (computerized) mammography is similar to standard mammography in that X-rays are used to produce detailed images of the breast. Digital Mammography uses essentially the same mammography system as conventional mammography, but the system is equipped with a digital receptor and a computer instead of a film cassette.
  • Stereotactic Biopsy. A method to obtain a sample of tissue from a suspicious area of the breast using a special type of needle instead of surgery. A computer is used to determine the path of the needle to obtain the best tissue sample.
  • Ultrasound - General.
  • Ultrasound Guided Biopsy.

PACS

The Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) provides Web-based access to all images performed within Mountain States Health Alliance imaging departments. This allows physicians to view the patient's images immediately. CDs of images will be available upon request.

Results

A completed medical report will be forwarded to your referring physician who will share the test results with you.

Accreditation

By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in all of the College’s voluntary, breast-imaging accreditation programs. The ACR’s Mammography Accreditation Program provides facilities with peer review and constructive feedback on staff qualifications, equipment, quality control, quality assurance, image quality and radiation dose.

The breast imaging services at this center are fully accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined that this facility has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
