Taking Better Care of You
Now there is a more effective and comfortable way to monitor your breast health. At Lakeview Hospital, we have an enhanced and comprehensive line of services for women with the most advanced breast imaging technology available today.
Multiple studies have shown that when breast cancer is treated early, the survival rate increases dramatically. Digital mammography is invaluable as a cancer screening tool – especially for women under the age of 50 and those who have dense breasts at any age.
Digital mammography provides superior diagnostic images while significantly decreasing exposure to radiation. It reduces exam times from 60 minutes to 30. And it causes less pinching and discomfort, although the breast is still compressed for a few moments.
Automated Breast Ultrasound System
Lakeview Hospital is the first in Utah to bring peace of mind to women with dense breasts. They are 4-6 times more likely to develop breast cancer, which is too often missed even with the most advanced mammography. The dense tissue in their breasts appears white on a mammogram and hides small tumors that also appear white.
We offer the only FDA-approved automated breast ultrasound system as an additional screening tool for women with dense breasts. The InveniaTM ABUS helps our clinicians to more accurately diagnose breast cancer when it is smaller and more curable.
The Women’s Imaging Center at Lakeview Hospital provides personalized breast cancer screenings in a private and comfortable setting. We also offer DEXA scans, one of the most accurate ways to accurately measure bone health and detect osteoporosis.
