Early detection makes a difference.
At Doctors Hospital Mammography Clinic, we provide the highest comfort and the best service quality, as well as the highest international standard of medical care in Northern Mexico.
Our Medical Center has timely cancer detection programs and we are the only Imaging Center specialized in women that has all the latest technology equipment in one place.
Procedures we offer in Imaging for Women are:
- 3D Digital Mammography.
- Contrast Mammography.
- High-Resolution Breast Ultrasound.
- Breast intervention (ultrasound-guided biopsies and stereotaxy).
- Bone densitometry.
- Gynecological Ultrasound (Uterus and Ovaries).
Digital Mammography with Tomosynthesis [3D] (HOLOGIC)
Produces 3D planes, thus helping to reduce or eliminate the overlap of breast tissue, allowing to find hidden Cancers and synthesizing the images with a lower dose of radiation, without losing quality and resolution.
Contrast Mammography (I-VIEW HOLOGIC)
It is the most innovative study; upon administration of a contrast medium intravenously, it performs digital mammographic projections that allow detecting more cancer foci not seen in non-contrast procedures.
It is essential for pre-surgical planning in a patient with breast cancer.
High-Resolution Breast Ultrasound (18 MHZ) (ACUSON 2000 SIEMENS)
It allows identifying lesions that could not be seen on mammography or in 3D. It is the first study tool for young women under 35, pregnant and lactating.
The equipment has tools such as Color Doppler, which allows evaluating the vascular map of the lesions and Quantitative Elastography, managing to know the stiffness of the suspected tissue, to differentiate between benign and cancerous lesions.
Biopsies with Vacuum Systems (SUROS)
It is a biopsy guided by ultrasound, stereotaxy or tomosynthesis, with a vacuum system that allows obtaining a greater amount of sample, including the total resection of small lesions with minimal invasion.
The advantages of performing percutaneous (closed) biopsies in the Department of Imaging for Women are as follows:
- Minimum invasion.
- Local anesthesia.
- Outpatient procedure that requires relative rest, allowing you to resume your activities 12 hours later.
- Better planning and surgical treatment by the specialist doctor, when faced with a cancer diagnosis.
