The Woman's Hospital of Texas - Woman's Place for Breast Care headline

Woman's Place for Breast Care — a new digital mammography service at the Woman's Hospital of Texas . The new Hologic state-of-the-art system provides clear, detailed digital images offering the highest degree of diagnostic confidence to support the radiologists in the early detection of breast cancer.

  • Digital mammography has been shown to be more sensitive for detection of breast cancer in women with dense breast, women under the age of 50, and in both premenopausal and perimenopausal women.
  • The use of digital mammography also decreases the recall rate for additional evaluations.
  • We have also introduced the use of the MammoPad, a soft breast cushion used during mammography that reduces discomfort, creating a more comfortable experience and often resulting in better tissue acquisition.

Most importantly for patients, the transition to digital mammography has allowed our practice to become more efficient. We are able to optimize the time caring for your patients and to provide timely appointments. Our goal for patients is to:

  • Schedule screening appointments within two to five days
  • Schedule diagnostic appointments scheduled within seven to 10 days
  • Improve turnaround time for mammography reports
  • Provide same-day results in those cases where biopsy intervention is being recommended.
