MAMMOGRAPHY

Medical Clinic of Houston is proud to be using the most technologically advanced mammography imaging equipment on the market today.

Hologic mammography imaging offers up to 40% reduction in false positive recalls, exceptionally sharp images, and ergonomic design for patient comfort.

In December 2015, the Clinic purchased Hologic mammography imaging that is at the forefront of breast cancer screening with proven superior clinical performance.

The American Cancer Society recommends that women get a physical breast examination by their doctor or health professional every three years age 20-40 and every year beginning at age 40.  You should see your doctor without delay if you experience any unusual symptoms at any time.  Most breast lumps are not cancers, but only your doctor can determine this.  We want you to be aware, informed, and to take control of your breast health. The best way to cure cancer is to detect it early using all three steps -  Breast self-exam, Mammography, and physician breast exam.

CARDIAC CALCIUM SCORING

Cardiac calcium scoring is a revolutionary, pain-free, non-invasive procedure used to detect plaque in the coronary arteries. CT imaging with sub-second scanning capability detects and provides your cardiac calcium score. The equipment takes 50-80 images of your coronary arteries without any injections in less than 15 minutes.
