Breast health begins with mammography
Early detection of cancer is necessary to save lives. It is essential for women ages 40 and over to receive a yearly mammogram. The technologists at Terre Haute Regional Hospital strive to make patients as comfortable as possible while conducting mammograms.
We are proud to be a provider in the Wabash Valley that offers iCAD, also known as a type of digital mammogram. Our iCAD system is like having a second opinion. This system actually colorizes the densities in the breast that might be questionable. This is just one of the radiology techniques that Terre Haute Regional Hospital is utilizing to help provide safe and quality care to our patients.
Mammograms help physicians to study breast tissue and plan treatment for any breast disease that might be found. Our mammography services are federally certified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and meet all standards set by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Our highest qualified technologists and radiologists stay current with the latest information regarding treatment and education.

Additional women’s services
Our technologists use the most advanced ultrasound equipment. Our list of comprehensive ultrasound services include:
- Obstetrical and gynecologic
- Abdominal echo
- Breast imaging
- Gall bladder
- Lower extremity/Venous Doppler
- Superficial lump testing
Breast ultrasound is available in the same department as mammography. There is no need to move from department to department.
A bone densitometry test is able to measure bone loss and displays a non-invasive scan of the spine, femur and total body. We are able to detect subtle bone changes in a variety of clinical applications due to the improvements made on the hospital’s bone density testing equipment.
Stereotactic breast biopsy
Terre Haute Regional Hospital offers stereotactic breast biopsy, which is a special way to have a breast biopsy done as an outpatient procedure without general anesthesia. A trained physician performs the biopsy by numbing the area of the breast and then strategically placing a needle to remove tissue from the area of concern. Our breast specialists are by your side throughout the entire process. The procedure takes approximately two hours to complete, and the patient is ready to resume her normal day with just a few activity restrictions for 24 hours.
