Ultrasound - In most instances, an ultrasound is available for same-day access and allows physicians to perform ultrasound-guided biopsies.
Digital mammography - This decreases the amount of radiation you receive and improves image quality. Both 2-D and 3-D tomosynthesis are offered.
Digital computer-aided detection (CAD) - Digital CAD highlights characteristics commonly associated with breast cancer. When activated, it flags abnormalities to help the radiologist detect early breast cancer. CAD is, in essence, a second set of eyes to support and enhance the radiologist's judgment.
