    What is a screening mammogram?

    A screening mammogram is a low dose x-ray of the breast. A mammogram consists of two images of each breast. The images are used to detect changes in the breasts of women who have no signs or symptoms suspicious for breast cancer. An annual screening mammogram is recommended for all women over the age of 40.

    What are the different types of hearing loss?

    Conductive hearing loss occurs from loss of sound sensitivity resulting from abnormalities of the middle and/or outer ear. This type of loss is common in children with ear infections; once the infection has cleared up, the hearing is usually restored. Sensorineural hearing loss results from abnormalities in the inner ear and/or nerve paths to the brain. The auditory cells and nerve are permanently damaged. This is the type of hearing loss often referred to as “nerve deafness.” Mixed hearing losses are those that have symptoms of both conductive and sensorineural hearing losses.

    What types of echocardiograms are available? What is the difference?

    There are three other types of echocardiograms performed: 1. Stress Echocardiogram: combines the echo exam with treadmill exercise or medications that simulate exercise. This test is used to diagnose the presence and severity of coronary artery blockages. 2. Echocardiogram/Dopler Evaluation (with or without contrast): combines the echo exam with intravenous administration of a sterile contrast solution. This solution may be needed to better visualize your heart. 3. Transesophageal Echocardiogram: utilizes a special miniaturized echo transducer that is passed down the esophagus to better image the heart. This test is most often used to evaluate patients with prior neurologic events (strokes or transient ischemic attacks), heart valve replacements, infections of the heart, or abnormal rhythms.
