3D Mammography

Watson Imaging offers 3D mammography, or True Breast Tomosynthesis for St. Louis. Breast Tomosynthesis takes images from many angles of each breast, which is not available in 2D mammography. Pictures are taken in a 50-degree arc around the breast for a more complete image. Twenty-five pictures are taken of each breast, and then those images are sent to a computer and assembled into a 3D picture of the breast.

Ultrasound exam

Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. No ionizing radiation (x-ray) is involved in ultrasound imaging. Obstetric ultrasound refers to the specialized use of sound waves to visualize and thus determine the condition of a pregnant woman and her embryo or fetus.

Bone Density Scans

Bone is living tissue that is constantly being broken down and reformed. As a person grows, bone forms faster than it breaks down until it reaches a peak bone mass between the ages of 25 and 35. After age 35, both men and women lose bone mass at a greater rate than it forms, causing bone loss.

Digital X-Rays

An x-ray (radiograph) is a method of obtaining images inside the human body by exposing a specific part of the body with a minimal dose of ionizing radiation. An x-ray is the oldest and most used form of medical imaging. X-rays are the fastest and easiest way for a physician to view and diagnose: fractures, joint dislocations, fluid buildup on joints and other medical conditions.
