Mammography is an X-Ray picture of the breast used for both screening and diagnosis. Spectrum Health has locations throughout West Michigan including several with walk-in services and mobile mammography.
3D Breast Imaging/Tomosynthesis
Betty Ford Breast Care Services is the only provider in West Michigan to offer breast tomosynthesis at all of our locations and on our mobile mammography units. This breakthrough three-dimensional (3D) screening tool captures clearer images than conventional mammography and decreases the need for "call-backs". Diagnostic mammograms that utilize tomosynthesis can create a highly detailed image, helping uncover tumors that might otherwise go undetected.
Breast ultrasound is a procedure that uses sound waves to create a picture of the inside of the breast. It can be used to determine if a breast lump is filled with fluid or is a solid tumor.
Breast MRI produces highly detailed views of the tissue. It can be used after an abnormal mammogram to determine if a biopsy is needed or not.
