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 is a cardiac catheterization, or angiogram?
This test is usually performed in patients with chest pain, shortness of breath, positive stress test, or people with suspected heart valve abnormalities. The procedure involves placement of a catheter in the groin and injection of contrast dye into the coronary arteries and heart itself. The physician can visualize blockages in the arteries or abnormalities of the heart muscle or valves on specialized X-ray equipment. The procedure usually takes around 15-30 minutes.
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.
What is a Clinical Breast Exam (CBE)?
A clinical breast exam (CBE) is similar to a BSE, except it is performed by your health care provider. If you have questions about how to perform a BSE, your health care provider can discuss and demonstrate the proper technique during your CBE.
