Digital Mammography/Ultrasound Imaging CenterServices

Digital Mammography
Kaweah Delta Imaging Center is home to Visalia's first digital mammography units. A digital mammogram uses a special detector to capture and convert x-ray energy into digital data. The resulting digital images are immediately available to the radiologist for diagnosis and are incredibly flexible. Much like a digital photo, the images can be enhanced, manipulated, and improved by the radiologist, so a digital mammogram can provide more information for diagnosis. Digital technology also offers better visibility of the entire breast. In addition to a more flexible image, the new digital system works with ImageChecker, a computer-aided detection system. The software analyzes the image and highlights areas on the mammogram that contain features associated with cancer-much like a second set of eyes for the radiologist reading the mammogram. Breast localizations, stereotactic biopsies and biopsies utilizing ultrasound are also completed within this state-of-the-art facility.
