Programs and Services
State-of-the-art imaging equipment at Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion includes:
- 64-view CT Scanner
Sharp's three 64-view CT scanners provide for the most detailed look at any area of the body.
- Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) for Mammography
This unit works as a second pair of "eyes" by automatically scanning a patient's mammogram after initial interpretation. If the CAD software detects a breast abnormality, the abnormality is marked on the image and then forwarded to a radiologist for further review.
- 3-D Mammography (3-D Tomosynthesis)
This diagnostic tool uses high-powered computing to generate a 3-D reconstruction of the breast, providing clearer, more accurate views of the breast tissue.
- Digital Mammography
Digital mammography uses computers and specially designed digital detectors to produce an image that can be displayed on a high-resolution computer monitor, and transmitted and stored just like computer files. The technology allows radiologists to adjust brightness, change contrast and zoom in on specific areas to help detect small calcifications, masses and other changes that may be signs of early breast cancer.
- Stereotactic Breast Biopsy Unit
Stereotactic breast biospy is a minimally invasive breast biopsy routinely performed without the need for anesthesia. The biopsy procedure is quick and about one-third the cost of an open surgical biopsy. Patients can immediately return to routine activities with little more than a small bandage.
