Briner Imaging Center: State-of-the-Art Mammography

Tahoe Forest Hospital’s Briner Imaging Center offers Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exams, now with enhanced detection technology, the latest breakthrough in breast cancer detection. Using advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, Genius exams significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, while simultaneously decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing.

The Hologic system is recommended for women of all ages and breast densities. The system allows radiologists to more effectively pinpoint the size, shape and location of abnormalities. This leads to better detection and greater peace of mind for patients.

  • The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam is the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts compared to 2D mammography alone.
  • The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam finds 20-65% more invasive breast cancers than 2D alone.
  • Studies show that Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exams reduce callbacks by up to 40%.

Tahoe Forest Hospital’s Briner Imaging Center is located at Tahoe Forest Hospital in Truckee.

Mammography Screening

If you've never had a mammogram, or you haven't had one in over a year, you should consider making an appointment. No physician referral is necessary, and most insurance plans are accepted. Statistics show that mammograms and monthly self-checks are the most effective methods for detecting breast cancer early. The sooner you are diagnosed, the sooner you can be treated. You are never too old to have your first mammogram, and follow-up care is available from a local physician. The procedure is simple, non-invasive and is performed by one of our certified mammography technologists. Our equipment is accredited by the American College of Radiology, meeting tough Federal standards for performance.

Free or reduced cost screenings may be available to those who qualify. For eligibility details, please call (530) 582-6510.

CT (CAT) Scans

Computed tomography, or CT scan, is also known as a CAT (computerized axial tomography) scan. Tahoe Forest Hospital's state-of-the-art multi-slice CT scanner is a high quality piece of equipment that combines traditional x-ray technology with computer technology. CT scanning allows your physician to see a detailed image of your body or internal organs with a high-resolution 3-D image. The CT Scanner is a diagnostic tool that provides a quicker, more accurate diagnosis of many medical conditions that are very difficult to detect with regular x-rays. CT scanning is painless, non-invasive and involves minimal radiation exposure, due to thin beam scanning technology.

What to expect at a CT Scan?

After changing into an examination gown, a Certified Radiology Technologist who is specially trained in imaging procedures will comfortably position you on the CT exam table. You will lie face up as you pass through the opening of the scanner, called the gantry. The scanner is open-faced and non-claustrophobic. The CT scanner resembles a large ring, which rotates around your body at 360 degrees as it sends and picks up thin beam x-rays obtaining cross-sectional images. Each organ can be seen clearly without overlap from other organs in the body. Periodically, the technologist may use the intercom to ask you to hold your breath for a short period of time. This helps to create better pictures when scanning the abdomen or chest. Most CT examinations take approximately 15 to 45 minutes.

After your examination is complete, the radiologist will checks the quality of the images taken. Occasionally, more scans may be needed. The radiologist will interpret the results of your examination and provide a report to your physician. After your exam, you may eat and drink as you normally would and resume all of your regular activities.

Bone Densitometry

Osteoporosis affects over 25 million Americans. Often people with osteoporosis do not know their bones are thinning and they can suffer serious problems from the disease. Both men and women are at risk for osteoporosis. If diagnosed early, treatment can be prescribed that may slow down or even reverse the effects of bone loss. Tahoe Forest Hospital offers bone densitometry testing that produces images of the spine, hip or whole body. This test monitors the effects of age, diet, family history and other risk factors. An order from your physician is needed for this test.
