Women's Hospital Imaging Department

MammogramWelcome to the Imaging department at Women's Hospital. Our exceptional people are committed to providing world-class care in a warm and comfortable environment close to home.

We offer a wide range of services to our patients, including diagnostic radiology, Computed Tomography (CT), bone density testing, mammography and ultrasound. We are located on the first floor adjacent to the outpatient registration waiting area.

Digital Mammography

Our digital breast imaging technology uses the latest equipment and techniques for clearer images in half the time of traditional mammograms. And, it’s especially beneficial for women younger than 50, premenopausal women and women with dense breasts. Screening mammography is recommended for all women annually beginning at age 40.

Also, we use CAD (Computer Assisted Diagnosis), which provides a second electronic reading of the mammography study and can further improve cancer detection and the overall diagnostic accuracy of mammograms.

Together, both digital mammography and CAD offer many advantages over traditional mammograms, including:

  • Improved patient comfort and in most cases, less compression.
  • Shorter exam times.
  • Faster results.
  • Less anxiety.
  • Less radiation.
  • Better imaging for implants, dense or fibrocystic breasts, and smaller breasts.

Our department is Accredited by the American College of Radiology and FDA approved. 

Appointments may be scheduled Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. by calling (336) 832-6515.

As a courtesy, we provide special reserved parking spaces for our mammography patients. These spaces are located in front of the main entrance just beyond the circle drive.

Bone Densitometry

Women's Hospital has a new, state-of-the-art densitometer, which identifies bone loss at a much earlier stage. The test is completely painless and provides a personalized risk score in just a few minutes.

Today, 25 million Americans have osteoporosis. While post-menopausal women are the largest group at high risk for osteoporosis, there are other risk factors for osteoporosis, including:

  • Small, thin frame.
  • Female.
  • Asian ancestry.
  • Never taken estrogen.
  • Early menopause.
  • Family history of osteoporosis.
  • Avoidance of dairy foods.
  • Low vitamin D intake.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Excessive alcohol intake.
  • Smoker.
  • Excessive caffeine intake.

Would you like to know if you are at risk? If so, obtain a referral from your physician. Then, call the Women's Hospital Radiology Department at (336) 832-6515 for more information or to make an appointment for a bone density measurement.
