Women's Diagnostic Services

Breast Cancer doesn't wait. Why should you? 


Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with some form of breast cancer? Don't worry! We're here for you. Memorial doctors are experienced in all types of breast conditions, from the most common to the rare and complex. Our doctors use the most advanced, innovative diagnostic and treatment techniques including advanced imaging techniques like digital and 3D mammograms to provide the best care possible.

3D Digital Mammography
is the most effective technology available for finding breast cancer when it is most curable. Digital mammography provides an exceptionally clean, high-resolution digital image within seconds. There is no waiting for film to develop, which can reduce exam times. The Bella Blanket®, a soft breast cushion, is used to enhance comfort when the breast is compressed during mammography.

Getting started begins with your physician or primary care provider, who will need to write you a medical order to schedule a mammogram. Memorial Diagnostic Imaging offers the latest testing and technology, giving women an advantage through early detection. Need a physician? Give us a call at (228) 867-5000.

Additional services include:

Computer Aided Detection (CAD) system - used with the digital mammography system analyzes images and guides a board certified radiologist to areas of concern on the image. This technology is expected to increase early-stage cancer detection and improve survival rates.

Bone Dexascan - can provide early diagnosis of osteoporosis or provide ongoing monitoring of it. The dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) uses two different X- ray beams to estimate bone density in your spine and hip. The amounts of each X-ray beam that are blocked by bone and soft tissue are compared to each other. Bones with higher mineral density allow less of the X-ray beam to pass through them. DEXA is a fast and accurate method for measuring bone mineral density (BMD). DEXA uses low doses of radiation and can measure as little as 2% of bone loss per year.

Stereotactic Breast Biopsy - is a minimally invasive biopsy procedure that is used when small areas of suspicious tissue show up in a mammogram. The breast is positioned through an opening in a special table, and the tissue is compressed lightly to immobilize it, much like a mammogram. The table is connected to a computer that produces detailed X-ray images of the abnormality. The images guide the doctor in collecting tissue specimens with a thin needle. The physician may remove several tiny samples of breast tissue for biopsy. After the needle is taken out, a small bandage is placed on the skin.

Breast MRI - is offered using CADstreamTM, a breast MRI software package that accompanies breast MRI scanning. By reducing processing and interpretation time, CADstreamTM allows radiologists to read breast MRIs more efficiently and consistently.

Our skilled and knowledgeable providers will provide the best comprehensive care and keep you informed every step of the way. You are in good hands with Memorial.
