    What is Astigmatism? How is Astigmatism corrected?

    Astigmatism is a refractive error usually associated with an irregularly shaped cornea. A spherical cornea creates a single focal point while an astigmatic, irregularly shaped cornea creates more than one point of focus. As a result the image that is formed on the retina of the eye is blurred. Glasses, contact lenses and refractive surgery may all be used to correct Astigmatism.

    Who reviews the mammography image/results?

    All mammography results are reviewed a minimum of two times. The first review is performed by one of our board certified radiologists. The second review is performed by the R2 ImageChecker. The R2 ImageChecker is a Computer Aided Detection (CAD) system that analyzes mammograms giving a computerized “second opinion.”

    When Should I receive a Clinic Breast Exam?

    Depending on your family history and whether or not breast cancer has affected someone in your family, CBEs should be performed at least once every three years beginning at age 20. After age 40, CBEs are recommended at least once a year. Generally, CBEs are performed during annual Pap smear and pelvic exams.
