Guide to Women’s Health

We’ve all heard the saying, “You can’t pour from an empty glass.” Mamas, nothing is more true. It is so important to take care of you–and above all your health. We have put together a list of great health options all for women. Take a look and take care of you so you can keep being great moms! 

DaVita Medical Group


DaVita Medical Group Now Offers 3D Mammography

DaVita Medical Group Radiology now offers 3D Mammography at their Journal Center location. 3D Mammography is the newest development in mammography. It is approved for all women who are undergoing a mammogram, in both the screening and diagnostic settings, but is most likely useful for women with dense breast tissue or women at a higher risk for developing breast cancer. There is no additional compression required, and the study takes only a few additional seconds.

3D captures multiple images of the breast at different angles, and then brings them together to create a reconstructed image. Our Radiologist is then able to review the reconstructions one thin slice at a time, almost like turning the pages of a book. This makes it easier for doctors to see any abnormalities. In fact, studies show both a reduced need for follow up imaging and improved cancer detection rates with 3D Mammography.

Don’t delay…call (505) 232-1500 today to schedule your 3D Mammogram!

DaVita Medical Group is a local multi-specialty medical group. We offer comprehensive healthcare services backed by nearly 40 medical and surgical specialties with 13 locations throughout Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.

Until you hold that baby in your arms for the first time, you just can’t appreciate what Dr. Thompson does,” says Krysta B., the happy, proud mother of twins. “I went to a different fertility Doctor for two years, but with no results…and then I met Dr. Thompson. In our first appointment I got a little emotional, but I could tell he felt everything I felt.
