Mammography


The American College of Radiology has designated our Imaging Department as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by achieving accreditation in our breast imaging modality.

Mammograms can detect cancers that are too small to be felt during a monthly breast self-exam. Early detection of breast cancer reduces the risk of fatality from the disease by 25-30% or more. Women should begin having annual mammograms at age 40, or earlier if they're at high risk. Discuss with your healthcare provider.

Our Imaging Department offers mammograms Monday - Thursday from 9:00am to 4:00pm. No referral is needed from your physician and walk-ins are welcome. If you prefer to make an appointment, call (808) 697-3487 Monday - Saturday between 8am – 6pm

Breast Self-Exam Guide

Monthly breast self-exams can be an important way to find a breast cancer early, when treatment is more likely to be successful. Follow this helpful guide and talk to your healthcare provider if you have any questions or notice any changes.


Bone Densitometry (DEXA)

Bone densitometry, also called dual-energy x-ray absorption (DEXA), uses a very small dose of radiation to produce an image, usually of the lower spine and hips, to measure bone loss. Bone densitometry is used to diagnosis osteoporosis and assesses an individual’s risk for developing osteoporotic fractures.

Our Imaging Department offers Bone Density Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. A referral is needed from your physician. To schedule an appointment, call (808) 697-3487 Monday - Saturday between 8am – 6pm.
