What should I expect during the 3D mammography exam?
3D mammography complements standard 2-D mammography and is performed at the same time with the same system. There is no additional compression required and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view. Adding a few seconds to your exam could save your life!
What is a hysterectomy?
Hysterectomies are performed to treat gynecological conditions including cancer, fibroids, endometriosis, uterine bleeding, and childbirth complications. A hysterectomy is defined as the surgically removal of the uterus, but there are many different ways to perform this procedure, and a patient should consider the type of hysterectomy she needs based on the reason for the surgery, as well as the size and position of the uterus. The most common types of hysterectomy surgeries include:
- Total or complete hysterectomy where both the uterus and cervix are removed.
- Subtotal or partial hysterectomy where the uterus is removed, but the cervix remains intact.
- Radical hysterectomy is performed when certain cancers are discovered. This procedure removes the uterus, cervix, ovaries, and other structures that support the uterus, which can include lymph nodes.
