Women’s Specialty Health
In addition to providing cutting-edge diagnostic testing for patients in our community, Starling Diagnostics in the Bronx, New York, is specially focused on providing exceptional women’s specialty healthcare.
Among the services we provide specifically for women are:
- 3D Mammograms – Also known as breast tomosynthesis, a 3D mammogram is an imaging test that combines multiple breast X-rays to create a three-dimensional picture of the breast. It is especially helpful to detect abnormalities in women with dense breast tissue.
- DEXA Bone Density Scans – This form of X-ray scan provides a means of measuring bone mineral density using spectral imaging. Two X-ray beams with different energy levels are trained on the patient's bones. When soft tissue absorption is deducted, bone density can be determined based on the absorption of each beam by bone. Typically, a DEXA scan is used to diagnose and track osteoporosis.
- Ultrasound – Besides its use in prenatal care, ultrasound provides diagnostic images of soft tissue structures such as the gallbladder, liver, kidneys, pancreas, bladder, and other organs. It also can be used to measure blood flow in arteries, thereby detecting any blockages.
