mammogram each year can help detect any issues early. At Texas
Health Burleson, we strive to make your mammogram experience as
comfortable as possible. Unlike most mammography facilities, we
use MammoPad® to help make your mammogram as comfortable as
possible. The MammoPad® is a soft foam pad that is placed on the
imaging receptor, creating a warmer softer surface between the
woman and the mammography system.
Bone Density Testing
Bone health is an important part of a woman's overall health, and
many American women can expect to be affected by osteoporosis at
some point in their life. Asian, Hispanic, and Native American
women are at even greater risk for osteoporosis. To help you keep
an eye on bone health, Texas Health Burleson offers DEXA scans -
the gold standard in determining any decreases in bone density.
This test is simple, quick (usually lasting about 15 minutes),
and can be taken fully clothed. Test results are available after
they have been read by a radiologist.
DEXA scans are used to check bone density.
For any further diagnostic studies that are needed, Texas Health
Burleson offers a robust navigation process to ensure that you
receive the appropriate next steps in care.
