A computed tomography scan (CT or CAT scan), is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of x-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images (often called slices) of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of the body, including the bones, muscles, and organs. CT scans are more detailed than general x-rays.
Mammograms are one of the best ways to find the early stages of breast cancer. It can reveal small tumors up to two years before you or your doctor can feel them. These scans also catch images of tiny calcifications that are often non-cancerous, but if they form clusters, could become cancerous. These micro-calcifications cannot be viewed by an ultrasound and may be missed by a breast MRI. This is why mammograms saves lives--it could save yours.
An ultrasound, also called sonography, is a diagnostic imaging technique that uses a small transducer (probe) and ultrasound gel to expose the body to high-frequency sound waves to create images of blood vessels, tissues and organs. Ultrasounds are used to view internal organs real-time to assess function and blood flow through various vessels.
