3D stereotactic biopsy is most commonly used to sample breast tissue. This diagnostic tool helps to identify breast cancer in patients and is a less invasive option to traditional biopsy. Stereotactic breast biopsy is aided by the use of mammography X-rays to help locate the abnormality, and, upon location, a sample is removed for further analysis.
Stereotactic radiosurgery is an advanced form of radiation therapy used to treat various types of cancer and tumors. Through the use of precise imaging and localization, our radiologists are able to identify the exact spot in the body that the radiation therapy needs to target. The affected area is imaged to determine the best position for the patient to be in to receive a highly focused dose of radiation therapy. This technique helps deliver more direct treatment to the cancer or tumor and also spares surrounding, healthy tissue.
Diagnostic tools and laboratory results are vital to diagnosing and treating heart conditions. At Henrico Doctors’ Hospital, we offer coronary calcium scans, computed tomography (CT) angiograms, diagnostic cardiac catheterizations and blood work. Learn more about heart screening and imaging.
