The Peggy A. Bell Women's
Diagnostic and Breast Center offers the latest medical technology
for detecting breast cancer, including leading-edge breast
tomosynthesis imaging and digital mammography, in a comfortable
and warm environment.
We understand the anxiety that can
come with getting a mammogram or other medical procedure, so
we've designed a center with relaxing waiting areas, comfortable
lounges and large, private changing rooms. The center offers
services with your convenience in mind; weekend and evening
appointments and pre-registration by phone are available.
All mammography performed at the
center is 100 percent digital, which has been shown to be more
beneficial than film mammography for many women, according to a
recent article in The New England Journal of Medicine.
Digital mammography allows physicians on the medical staff to
find smaller cancers earlier than when using conventional film
technology and the digital images can be stored electronically.
The center also uses a computer-aided detection system, which
utilizes technology to search for patterns that are typically
recognized as indicators for cancer.

The availability of leading-edge
options in early detection is important for women who know they
are at increased risk of developing breast cancer. The center
is the first in North Texas to commercially offer breast
tomosynthesis, a form of 3D mammography. The technology is
aimed at catching breast cancers early in women at higher than
average risk for the disease or those with dense breast tissue.
We are also proud to offer Breast Specific Gamma Imaging
(BSGI). BSGI can identify hard-to-detect lesions, making it a
vital diagnostic tool that goes beyond traditional mammography
