Colchester Backus Family Health Center
Services offered include lab, X-ray by appointment, bone density, mammography, and ultrasound. The health center also offers “walk-in” urgent care, primary care, occupational health and a blood drawing station.
The Colchester Backus Health Center has digital mammography and bone density screenings hours.
Digital mammography produces clearer images faster and studies show it may be more effective in detecting breast cancer. Because the health center is digitally connected to the main hospital campus, board-certified radiologists at Backus are able to review the images and quickly consult with physicians who order the test.
The bone density screenings will be done using the latest DEXA scan technology. The test measures bone density, which is a way of diagnosing osteoporosis. Women older than 65 should be tested routinely, and testing is recommended for all postmenopausal women between the ages of 50 and 65 years who have risk factors for osteoporosis other than menopause.
Other radiology services offered include ultrasound, X-ray and CT scans.
