DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING FOR WOMEN
Located in the Carolyn J. Stone Center for Women’s Health and Wellness
Sonoma Valley Hospital is proud to offer Digital Mammography and Bone Density testing. These services are performed at 246 Perkins Street in Sonoma, between 2nd and 3rd Streets West behind the Sonoma Family Practice offices of Drs. Schafer, Manuel and Mishra. This offsite location is named The Carolyn J. Stone Center for Women’s Health and Wellness to acknowledge her generous support.
Our friendly staff will be happy to help you with your appointment or obtaining your prior mammograms from another facility. Our mammographers will perform your exam with as little discomfort as possible and answer any questions you may have. Please let them know if there is anything more they can do to help make your examination as comfortable as possible.
The digital capability enables the technologist to preview your images immediately, so you no longer need to wait while we develop your films.
Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) is now a part of our Digital Mammography service. CAD is used by the interpreting radiologist to highlight suspicious areas in the picture of your breast tissue. You may be called back for further images if the CAD system or the radiologist decides there is something that warrants a closer look.
Bone Density Testing
Our new Bone Density (or DEXA) system is digital and state-of-the-art. This new system is digital and fully interfaced with our PACS system (the electronic image viewing system) and your exam can be completed in less than half the time of our previous system.
