Welcome to 3T Women's Imaging

In response to demand from referring physicians and patients, we are pleased to announce the grand opening of 3T Women's Imaging, commencing in August 2011. 3T Women's Imaging is located within our existing 3T Imaging location at 9000 Waukegan Road in Morton Grove.

3T Women's Imaging is the most sophisticated Women’s Health Facility in the North Suburbs of Chicago offering the following benefits to patients and their referring doctors:

State-of-the-art Digital Mammography with Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD). We offer Digital Mammography for screening of asymptomatic patients as well as diagnostic mammography of symptomatic patients. All of these exams are completed on a Siemens MAMMOMAT Inspiration system. This system was introduced in the US for the first time in 2011 and we are proud to be one of the first facilities in the Chicago area to offer this state-of-the-art equipment. The Inspiration system offers:

  • Exceptionally good patient comfort
  • Optimal image quality
  • Maximum flexibility for spot views, patient positioning
  • Fully digital images transferable by/to CD (eliminate need for films)

Services

DIGITAL SCREENING MAMMOGRAMS

Screening Mammograms can detect changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them on examination. Current guidelines from the American Cancer Society (ACS) recommend screening mammograms every year for women beginning at age 40. Research has shown that annual mammograms lead to early detection of breast cancers when they are more easily curable and breast-conservation therapies are available.

ALL PATIENTS SHOULD BRING ANY AVAILABLE PRIOR OUTSIDE IMAGES WITH THEM AT THE TIME OF THEIR APPOINTMENT. 3T WOMEN’S IMAGING CENTER WILL RETURN THESE IMAGES FOR YOU. FOR MAXIMAL QUALITY PLEASE ASK FOR ORIGINAL FILMS (not copies).

DIGITAL DIAGNOSTIC MAMMOGRAMS

For women with breast problems including focal pain, lump or nipple discharge, 3T Women's Imaging offers diagnostic mammograms. The diagnostic mammogram is often followed by breast ultrasound performed the same day.

ALL PATIENTS SHOULD BRING ANY AVAILABLE PRIOR OUTSIDE IMAGES WITH THEM AT THE TIME OF THEIR APPOINTMENT. 3T WOMEN’S IMAGING CENTER WILL RETURN THESE IMAGES FOR YOU. FOR MAXIMAL QUALITY PLEASE ASK FOR DICOM-FORMAT, CDs, OR ORIGINAL FILMS (not copies).

WOMEN’S HEALTH ULTRASOUND EXAMS

3T Women's Imaging has the latest generation of ultrasound equipment operated by highly trained female technologists offering full service exams:

Female Health Studies

  • Breast Imaging (with consultation by female radiologist)
  • Pelvic Imaging (ovaries, uterus)
  • Obstetric Imaging for fetal growth, structural surveys, and fetal well being (biophysical profiles)
  • OB ultrasounds (includes CD at no additional charge)

General Ultrasound Studies

  • General Body Imaging (liver, spleen, kidney, pancreas)
  • Vascular Imaging (carotid ultrasounds, lower extremity venous doppler)

Same and next day appointments are usually available.

BREAST MRI ON 3 TESLA MRI

  • 3T Women's Imaging has the most sophisticated MRI equipment anywhere in the Chicago area – a Siemens 3 Tesla Trio scanner.
  • 3 Tesla is the highest field strength available, which provides the best image quality for doctors to discern images with the greatest precision

Bone Mineral Density Test (BMD or DEXA scan)

The only way to diagnose osteoporosis and determine risk for fracture is with a Bone Mineral Density test, which is accurate, painless and non-invasive. The Women's Imaging Center uses Dexa scanning of the spine and hip to screen and monitor for osteoporosis.

The Experience

During a DEXA scan, you will lie fully clothed on a cushioned table. A technologist will be present to operate the scanner and assist you. DEXA scans are painless and require no injections, invasive procedures or sedation. The technologist may place special pads underneath or along your body to ensure proper positioning and comfort.

You will be asked to lie still for several minutes while the arm of the DEXA scanner passes over your body. You may hear a low humming noise during the scan. When the scan is complete, the technologist will help you off the table.

After The Exam

  • A radiologist, specially trained to interpret bone density scans, will review your images.
  • A diagnostic report will be sent to your physician, usually two to five days after your appointment.
  • Your physician will consider the radiologist's interpretation of your scan in the context of your overall care.

What are we looking for?

Bone density studies are used to determine if a patient has low bone mineral density, which causes bones to weaken and have greater risk of fracture.
