SBLFCH also updated its DEXA scanning technology with the Horizon DXA, by Hologic. A DEXA scan is used to measure bone density by passing a high and low energy X-ray beam through the body, usually in the hip and the spine. Osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually and early detection is key to keeping people safe. The scan takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete and is painless.


Digital Mammography

The latest in 3D mammography technology and DEXA scan is now offered at Sarah Bush Lincoln Fayette County Hospital.

For breast cancer detection, a 3Dimensions system by Hologic, was introduced in July. The system is designed to provide the highest quality 3D images for radiologists to interpret and a more comfortable mammography experience for patients.
We provide screening and diagnostic mammography services fully accredited by the State (MQSA), FDA, and ACR. To schedule a Digital Mammogram call 618-283-5466.
