RADIOLOGY / DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING
WOMEN'S IMAGING CENTER
Monadnock's Women's Imaging Center offers comprehensive diagnostic imaging that includes Mammography, Ultrasound, Bone Mineral Densitometry, and Stereoctatic Breast Biopsy all enclosed with a separate waiting room for complete privacy.
Tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography, is transforming breast cancer screening as we know it—and it’s now available at Monadnock Community Hospital. Tomosynthesis provides a clearer, more accurate view and results in a 40% increase in detection rates*, 40% fewer follow-up exams* and 100% peace of mind for patients.

Digital mammography is the most advanced mammographic imaging technology available for the early detection of breast cancer. With digital mammography, the images appear in seconds on the computer, providing better visibility and greater image flexibility. The system is also equipped with a computer-aided detection system that provides a second read by a computer.
Bone Mineral Densitometer (BMD)
Bone Density measures the mineral content and density of the bones in two critical areas, the lumbar spine and hip. This exam, which uses a minimal amount of radiation, helps identify those at risk for osteoporosis or in the early stages of the disease (osteopenia). A bone density exam is the only accurate way to diagnose osteoporosis in its early stages when it is most responsive to treatment. Monadnock Community Hospital utilizes a Lunar DPX-IQ Expert for bone density exams.
Ultrasound is a diagnostic procedure that uses sound waves to produce an image. MCH utilizes two ultrasound machines which are capable of performing all types of general, OB-GYN, carotid and venous ultrasound with 3-D and 4-D capabilities. The Ultrasound Department recently joined a select group of NH hospitals, fully accredited by the American College of Radiology in General and Vascular Ultrasound.
