The newly renovated and updated Women's Imaging Center was
licensed on July 18th by the Department of Health Services (DHS).
The center is located on the 1st floor of MOB Plaza II adjacent
to the Los Angeles Imaging Center. The following services will be
offered: screening mammography, diagnostic mammography, breast
ultrasonography, and osteoporosis screening/bone densitometry
General x-rays and general ultrasounds will continue to be done
in the Specialty Care Tower (SCT) of the main hospital until the
construction for those outpatient imaging procedures is complete
in a few months at which time those services will move from the
SCT to the basement floor in MOB Plaza II.
The newest technology, including "breast tomosynthesis" will be
offered at this facility in the coming months. Breast
tomosynthesis provides multiple images of the breast - similar to
CT scanning - without additional x-ray imaging of the breast.
This provides exceptional visualization of the breast tissue at
different levels providing much improved detection of breast
