The Women’s Imaging Center is the only location in the Napa Valley to offer these cutting-edge technologies all under one roof.

Abus[1]Automated Breast Ultrasound System (ABUS)

ABUS provides a comfortable exam that created highly accurate 3D views of the breast, improving the ability to spot abnormalities in dense breast tissue.

Standard Breast UltrasoundStandard Breast Ultrasound

This safe, noninvasive technology uses sound waves to look at the inside of breasts and primarily used to help diagnose lumps or other abnormalities found during a physical exam, mammogram or breast MRI.

Breast Cushion[1]2D & 3D Mammography with Breast Cushion

Mammograms are painful for many women; however, the MammoPad cushions reduce this discomfort and take the chill off the receptor surface. Studies show that the softer mammogram provided by the MammoPad cushion reduces discomfort by 50% for three out of four women. A curved mammogram paddle, which is shaped like a woman’s breast and provides additional comfort, is also available.

Biopsy[1]Stereotactic Biopsy System

When applicable, non-surgical, minimally invasive biopsy procedures are now available. This groundbreaking technology allows for a more streamlined and shorter procedure. The process easily targets lesions and reduces radiation exposure.

Bone Density[2]Bone Density Screening

The Horizon DXA system measures bone density and detects the risk for broken bones. DXA is used to diagnose osteoporosis and tracks the effects of other conditions that may cause bone loss. Most facilities offer imaging of the hip and lower back, but we have the ability to provide whole body DXA scans.
