    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.

    Should I get my eyes examined if I don’t need eyeglasses?

    Yes. An eye exam is much more than just checking your vision. A comprehensive eye health evaluation is also performed during an eye exam. A person may have no complaints and 20/20 vision and still suffer from conditions such as retinal breaks or tears, glaucoma, cataracts, retinopathy from diabetes or high blood pressure, melanoma of the eye, etc.

    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.”

    What is digital mammography?

    Digital mammography is a system where x-ray film pictures of the breast are replaced by solid-state detectors that convert x-rays into electric signals. These detectors are similar to those found in digital cameras. The electrical signals are used to produce images (similar to a digital photograph) of the breast that can be viewed on a computer screen or printed on special films. The dramatic difference in the quality of that picture allows Lourdes radiologists a better opportunity to discover abnormalities.

    What is the Crystalens?

    When a cataract is removed and replaced with a standard intraocular lens the cloudienss is eliminated, but there is no ability to accommodate and adjust focus for both distance and near vision. Therefore a person with a standard intraocular lens can regain clear vision but will usually need glasses at least for reading. The Crystalens is an intraocular lens that, unlike a standard intraocular lens is designed to recreate your accommodation and reduce or eliminate wearing glasses.
