Screenings are an essential part of Women’s Health. Ogden Clinic offers many types of imaging services to diagnose conditions and screen for potential problems. When you receive regular screenings, you are taking an active role in your own health.
Mammograms are included among the many imaging services that Ogden Clinic offers. Mammograms are a preventative screening that should be performed at age 50 for most women and are covered by most insurance plans. This specialized imaging system can detect potential problems in the breast tissue such as abnormal density, calcification, or mass that could indicate the presence of breast cancer.
Ogden Clinic Women’s Center also performs bone density DEXA scans: the gold standard for detecting low bone mass and osteoporosis. Following the onset of menopause, bone loss increases every year and may result in a loss of 25-30% of a woman’s total bone density by the end of her first five years after menopause. For this reason, a DEXA scan is recommended for most healthy women over age 65.
