The Women's Imaging Center

Breast ultrasound is another technique used to evaluate breast health. Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to create a visual image of the breast, thereby allowing the radiologist to determine whether a lump is solid or a fluid-filled cyst.

Morton Hospital has a stereotactic biopsy system. Morton's interventional radiologists use this minimally invasive equipment to perform core biopsies, a technique that may eliminate the need for more invasive surgery. The stereotactic system offers a safe, efficient alternative to surgery in appropriate candidates. A biopsy can be performed in the Women's Diagnostic Imaging Center under local anesthesia. With this needle technique, the process is less invasive, but still yields enough tissue to determine whether a breast lesion is benign or malignant. A computer helps guide the needle to the site of the lesion, where breast tissue is extracted. The result is less surgery for benign lesions and better surgical planning for malignancies.

The Women's Imaging Center is open six days a week. Mammography appointments are available Monday through Wednesday from 7:15 a.m. to 7:45 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays from 7:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 7:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
