Baptist Health La Grange's Diagnostic Imaging Services department offers low-cost screening mammography to help detect breast cancer early. Accredited by the American College of Radiology and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), our Mammography department uses advanced equipment for greater patient safety and comfort, and is staffed with female technologists who are sensitive to a woman's need for privacy.
Bone density testing
Diagnostic Imaging Services offers bone density testing to help diagnose osteoporosis before it can lead to painful fractures. DEXA bone density testing is the gold standard for measurement of the bone mineral content of the wrist, hips and spine -- the most common fracture sites for women with osteoporosis.
Other women's health services
Baptist Health La Grange's broad range of women's health services also includes a full range of testing, treatment and follow-up care for gynecological and breast disorders.
