Imaging

Our state-of-the-art, top-of-the-line imaging technology is yet another way we provide premium care for women just like you. It can help diagnose a potential lump before it becomes life-threatening, assist skilled surgeons in performing surgery with less pain and less recovery time, and even let you see whether your baby has you or your husband's nose.

For any kind of imaging you need, Louisiana Women's Healthcare is here to serve you and your family through all of life's stages. By consistently offering only a superior standard of care, we are proud to help empower each and every woman we serve.

Our fully accredited imaging departments offer the following services:

3D Diagnostic and Screening Mammography

The Mammography Department at LWH offers both diagnostic and screening mammograms. We are proud to be the first physician group in Louisiana to offer Genius 3D Mammography by Hologic, an advanced imaging system that takes multiple images of breast tissue from various angles to allow your physician to evaluate your mammogram layer by layer.

In the fight against breast cancer, Genius 3D Mammography is a more accurate screening method than traditional 2D mammography exams. 3D mammography detects 41% more invasive breast cancers and reduces callback rates by up to 40%, giving you peace of mind.

Osteoporosis Screening

As women age their bone strength naturally decreases, making bones fragile and prone to breaking. While there is no cure for osteoporosis, it is possible to prevent, slow or stop its progress with early detection and treatment.

Bone mineral density (BMD) testing is the preferred method for early detection of osteoporosis. We utilize Discovery by Hologic, a system that offers the most comprehensive platform for complete bone health assessment.

Obstetric Ultrasounds

The first look at your little one deserves the latest technology available. Our ultrasound department uses the GE Voluson E6, a premier women’s healthcare system that delivers a new generation of image quality using ground-breaking diagnostic tools. Our specialized ultrasonographers offer:

  • General obstetric ultrasounds
  • Biophysical profiles assessing fetal well-being
  • Doppler flow studies assessing fetal well-being
  • Nuchal translucency testing certified for early screening for chromosomal abnormalities

Apart from regular ultrasounds scheduled by your physician, we also offer gender determination ultrasounds starting at 16 weeks, as well as non-medical 3D/4D ultrasounds at 24-34 weeks gestation. 3D/4D ultrasounds give you a more in-depth view of your baby than traditional 2D ultrasounds. To schedule your gender determination or 3D/4D ultrasound, please call our office at 225-201-2010.

Gynecologic Ultrasounds

To better understand what's going on in your body, your physician may request a gynecological ultrasound. The ultrasound department at LWH offers general gynecological ultrasounds, hysterosonography and breast ultrasounds.
