Women's Health Technology
Saint Clare's offers a fully accredited mammography program. Licensed female technologists perform low-dose mammograms and diagnostic ultrasounds. Board-certified radiologists with experience and special training in interpreting mammograms and breast ultrasounds read test results. For suspicious areas, both ultrasound-guided and stereotactic breast biopsy, as well as breast MRI, are available.
Saint Clare's Women's Health Center in Dover was the first in northwest New Jersey to provide state-of-the-art digital mammography, the "gold standard" in breast imaging. Answering the increased demand of women for this enhanced breast scan, Saint Clare's offers digital mammography at the the Women’s Health Center in Dover, the Women’s Health Center in Sussex, and Saint Clare’s Imaging Center at Parsippany Commons. Shorter test times, and the decreased need for repeat testing, enable our Women's Health Centers to serve many more women who need mammograms.
If a screening reveals the need for additional diagnostic tests, they can often be performed during the same appointment. A nurse navigator is available to guide women through this process and provide education and support along the way.
