Screening Mammograms Save Lives

The earlier we catch breast cancer, the better we can treat it. That’s why we make it easy to get routine screening mammograms for the peace of mind you deserve. If you’re due for a mammogram, schedule one at Bolingbrook, GlenOaks, Hinsdale, or La Grange hospital by calling 800-595-5602.

Common Imaging Tests Physicians Order

Many different types of imaging tests exist, and these are some of the most common scans and tests physicians use to diagnose health conditions.

  • Computed Tomography (CT) Scans

    Quick and painless, a CT scan combines high-tech computer systems and X-rays to obtain specialized images of your brain, organs or bones to help doctors make a diagnosis.

  • Echocardiograms

    Echocardiograms use sound waves to produce live images of your heart. This kind of test allows your doctor to monitor how your heart and its valves are working.

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

    An MRI scan uses a magnetic field, radio-frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed images of organs, soft tissue, bone and other internal structures without radiation.

  • Mammography 

    Mammography is used to detect and evaluate breast changes. Screening mammograms look for any signs of cancer in healthy adults, while diagnostic mammograms investigate concerning symptoms further.

  • Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound

    A musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound helps doctors evaluate abnormalities in muscles, tendons, peripheral nerves, ligaments and small joints — all with a better resolution than an MRI or CT scan alone.

  • Open Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

    Open MRI machines use the same diagnostic technology as traditional MRI scans but with a magnetic top and bottom, allowing all four sides to be open instead of enclosed.

  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scans

    A PET scan uses a radioactive drug called a tracer to show both normal and abnormal metabolic activity. These scans can help identify and monitor cancer, heart disease and brain disorders.

  • Ultrasounds

    Also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, ultrasounds use high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body, including organs and blood vessels.
