Digital Mammography

All women are at risk for breast cancer. Currently, a woman living in the US has a 12.3% (1 in 8) lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. Mid-Atlantic Imaging Centers encourages early detection and supports the recommendations of the American Cancer Society. If you have any questions, be sure to consult with your physician.

If you are age 20 to 39:

  • Breast exam by your doctor or nurse every three years.
  • Report any changes to your doctor right away.
  • Breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for finding breast changes.

If you are 40 or older:

  • Mammogram every year.
  • Breast exam by your doctor or nurse every year.
  • Report changes to your doctor right away.
  • Breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for finding breast changes.

Bone Densitometry

If you answer yes to any of the following questions you may be at risk for osteoporosis:

  • Do you have a fair complexion?
  • Are you over 40 years old?
  • Do you smoke cigarettes?
  • Do you have a family history of osteoporosis?
  • Do you consume low amounts of dairy products?
  • Are you currently on thyroid medications?

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased susceptibility to fractures of the hip, spine and wrist. It is often called the "silent disease" because bone loss occurs without symptoms. Bone Densitometry (DXA) is a simple, safe and painless diagnostic test to identify those women at risk for osteoporosis. Through a Bone Density Scan, which measures your bone mass, osteoporosis can be detected early and treated. Mid-Atlantic Imaging Centers perform full bed (hip and spine) Bone Density Scans at all five imaging centers located in Chesapeake, Newport News, Norfolk and Virginia Beach offices. Referrals are accepted. Hours are by appointment only. Most insurance plans are accepted.
