The Imaging Center on Lovers Lane, a department of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – White Rock, offers three-dimensional (3D) digital mammography in addition to the traditional 2D method.

According to studies reported by The Journal of the American Medical Association, 3D mammography has shown to decrease the number of false-positive results, as well as the need for recall testing, both of which alleviate the stress involved in breast cancer screening.

What is 3D Mammography?

  • 3D mammography is performed in conjunction with a 2D digital mammogram to create a more complete picture of breast health.
  • During the 3D part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple images.
  • A computer then uses these images to produce a layered 3D image of the breast tissue.
  • This provides greater detail and allows the radiologist to see “inside” the breast layer by layer designed to find cancers earlier than ever.

Benefits of 3D mammography include:

  • May reduce false alarms, especially in cases of women with dense breast tissue
  • Greater detail and allows the radiologist to see “inside” the breast layer by layer to find cancers earlier than ever
  • Fewer repeat images may be needed, reducing the exposure to radiation
  • Improved breast cancer detection by 27 to 50 percent over 2D mammography

In addition to our advanced technology, we also provide extended service hours to accommodate your busy schedule and give you even more peace of mind:

Hours of Operation

  • Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Schedule a 3D Mammogram by calling 214.324.6220.

No physician referral/order is necessary. We accept all major insurance, but at this time 3D mammography is not covered by all providers.

Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake is changing its name to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – White Rock. The name change is part of the joint venture between affiliates of Baylor Scott & White Health and Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE:THC) to own five hospitals in North Texas, which was completed in January.

“Operating under the Baylor Scott & White name reflects our renewed commitment to providing the east Dallas community with the quality, compassionate health care it deserves,” says Jay Krishnaswamy, Chief Executive Officer of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – White Rock. “For more than a century, Baylor Scott & White Health has been caring for North Texans, and we’re proud to now be a part of that legacy.”

In addition to the new name and brand, the joint venture calls for shared governance of the hospital by a jointly appointed board of managers and other initiatives to better serve patients and the community.

“Our new name and signage is a symbol that we are dedicated to strengthening patient care and continuing our commitment to East Dallas and the surrounding communities for generations to come,” says Krishnaswamy. “We look forward to following through on that promise.”

Save enough pennies and you have a dime. Save enough dimes and you have a dollar. Save enough dollars and, well, get what you have always wanted. It may take some time for the big-ticket items, but if you work hard and start saving early, you could achieve your goal. Staying healthy can work the same way. By doing the little things, you could live a longer, healthier life.

You would be amazed at the difference that a few dietary tweaks—and a little more exercise—make! With that in mind, here are some ideas to help get you started on the road to a healthier you:

Trade a TV Show for a Walk.

Choosing to trade a TV show for a 10-minute walk every day can have positive, long-term effects on your physical and mental health, and it only takes a fraction of the time commitment you would give to a sitcom.

Plan Healthy Snacks for Your Week.

Taking 10 minutes at the beginning of the week to plan out healthy snacks for your entire week can help cut back on the problem of eating unhealthy snacks when you are tired or bored. Pack individual snack bags of almonds, cheese slices, carrot sticks or snap peas that you can grab on the go. It will simplify your week, and give you a healthy alternative to fast food, sweets or chips.

Drink More Water.

Drinking water instead of soda or alcoholic beverages can be an amazing way to start living healthier. Being properly hydrated can give your skin a healthier glow, aid in weight loss and promote healthy organ function.

Play Hard.

Take 10 minutes to make a list of active things you like to do and post it where you can see it. Finding fun activities will help you create a healthy and more balanced lifestyle. Using a part of your weekends to go to a museum, take a hike, go swimming, rake an elderly neighbor’s lawn or just walk around the mall with some friends can make all the difference.

At Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake, we believe that we should all like the person we see in the mirror, so living a healthy lifestyle should always be at the top of our lists. Jump in and begin a few ten-minute tweaks to start in on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.

The holidays are full of traditions and fun. At the heart of getting ready for the holidays? Decorating! Decorations become more elaborate every year it seems.

It’s not just your Christmas tree and some lights anymore. Yard art and interior decorations require a lot of work—but the stunning results are always worth it. But sometimes, in our haste to make our houses cheerful, Christmas ready and picture perfect, we forget that decorating can pose a few hidden dangers. But not if you remember take a few safety precautions and know your limits. Here are a few tips to help you get through the holidays safely:

The most important thing to remember is never decorate alone if you are using a ladder. And whether you use a ladder or not, you’re moving boxes, hanging lights and more so it’s always a good idea to have your spouse, a friend or an adult child home to help. Your body isn’t used to these movements, so whether you pull a muscle or take an unexpected tumble, you’ll need someone to be there for you.

Always be careful when digging through ornament boxes. Ornaments are often made of glass and can break during shifting and movement. Those cherished ornaments can become very sharp so watch out for anything that may puncture or cut your hands.

We love the smell or spruce-scented candles around the holidays. But remember, candles should never be left in an empty room or where a child might reach them and burn themselves—or worse. Candles can easily be knocked over by pets and can cause fires as well.

If you decide to go for a real Christmas tree this Christmas, make sure your tree is not dried out. Test the needles making sure they bend; if they snap immediately, then that’s not the tree for you. If lights are strung on a dried-out tree, the tree is more likely to ignite and cause a fire.

If you’re getting on top of your roof or using a tall ladder for a two-story home, use ladder safety precautions at all times. Make sure either you have experience and a spotter or hire someone to do it for you. Better safe than sorry.

We wish you a safe and joyful holiday season you and your loved ones. It is our sincere wish that the only danger you encounter this Christmas the temptation of all the delicious sweets around you.

However, if you or loved one find yourself injured, the ER at Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake is here to help.

EMERGENCY ROOM ONLINE CHECK IN - Schedule Now and Skip The Line Later to reserve your time online and comfortably wait at home. It’s quick, easy and you’ll be seen by a healthcare professional within 15 minutes of your scheduled time.

If you have a life-threatening emergency, call 911.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation or CPR is a life-saving technique that everyone should know. We’ve all seen it on TV or maybe even in person. But could we actually perform CPR in a time of emergency?

CPR is used in case of many life-threatening emergencies including heart attack, choking or near drowning. Basically, it is used to revive someone’s breathing or to get his or her heart beat started and regulated. This technique involves chest compressions, as well as assisted breathing, and can be performed on an adult, child or baby.

Who Should Know CPR?

Everyone from babysitters and lifeguards to new moms and dads should be trained. Here’s hoping you’ll never have to use your CPR training, but if you’re ever in a situation, you’ll be thankful to have it.

Just a Few Tips: C-A-B

The American Heart Association uses the acronym of CAB to help people remember the order to perform the steps of CPR:

  • Compressions: Restore blood circulation
  • Airway: Clear the airway
  • Breathing: Breathe for the person

Are You Ready To Learn CPR?

CPR may increase survival rate chances in a person experiencing a medical emergency. So if you know CPR, you may help save a life. Register today for the Family & Friends CPR Anytime Class.

Family & Friends CPR Anytime Interactive Class

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been smoking or how often. Quitting now can seriously improve your health almost immediately. And there are so many obvious reasons to quit smoking not just for your health, but also for those you love and who love you. It’s not just the secondhand smoke that can harm those around you; your family loves you and wants you to be healthy. 

Save $5,000-$7,000 Per Year When You Quit Smoking

Have you considered putting the money you would be spending on cigarettes in savings instead? Imagine the vacation you’ll go on with the money you’ll save when you don’t waste your hard-earned money on cigarettes.

Smokeless Tobacco Users: We Want You To Quit Too!

Smokeless tobacco users, you’re not off the hook. Many of the same concerns and conditions affect users of chew, dip or pouch tobacco too. (There are slightly higher instances of mouth cancer in smokeless tobacco users.) Quitting now will have the same amount of positive effects as quitting smoking will.

Good news: Smoking-related Cancer and Health Conditions are Preventable

Decide to stop smoking today. It’s not going to be easy. But there is plenty of support. Every day is another chance to start over and quit for good.

Support To Quit Smoking is Available

There is support available to quit smoking from online support groups to employer-sponsored cessation programs. And then there are your family and friends—they’ll be your biggest cheerleaders. Talk with your doctor. There is no one program fits all.

Maybe you’ll have to go cold turkey. Or maybe you prefer the assistance of nicotine gum or a nicotine patch. Whatever method works for you, the goal is still the same: quitting.

No more sneaking off to hide your secret or riding out that uncontrollable coughing fit—today’s the day.

And here’s something to celebrate your decision: November 19, 2015 is the Great American SmokeOut. Make a commitment to your health and your future. It’s a great time to be a joiner AND a quitter.

There is Help

Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake has several resources and tips to help you stop smoking. Visit Call 866-764-3627 today and request your free copy of "Facts About How You Can Stop Smoking" published by the American Lung Association. 

The Best Quit Smoking Tips

  • Find Your Reason: To get motivated, you need a powerful, personal reason to quit. It may be to protect your family from secondhand smoke. 
  • Prepare Before You Go “Cold Turkey”: Consider Nicotine-Replacement Therapy There’s more to it than just tossing your cigarettes out. Smoking is an addiction. The brain is hooked on nicotine.
  • Learn About Prescription Pills: Medicines can curb cravings and may also make smoking less satisfying if you do pick up a cigarette.
  • Lean on Your Loved Ones: Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. 
  • Give Yourself a Break: One reason people smoke is that the nicotine helps them relax. Once you quit, you’ll need new ways to unwind. 
  • Avoid Alcohol and Other Triggers: When you drink, it’s harder to stick to your no-smoking goal. So try to limit alcohol when you first quit.
  • Clean House: Once you’ve smoked your last cigarette, toss all of your ashtrays and lighters. 
  • Try and Try Again: Many people try several times before giving up cigarettes for good. If you light up, don’t get discouraged. 
  • Get Moving: Being active can curb nicotine cravings and ease some withdrawal symptoms. 
  • Eat Fruits and Veggies: Don’t try to diet while you give up cigarettes. 
  • Choose Your Reward: In addition to all the health benefits, one of the perks of giving up cigarettes is all the money you will save. 
  • Remember That Time Is on Your Side: As soon as you quit, you start to get immediate health benefits. After only 20 minutes, your heart rate drops.

Do you ever wish that everyday could be Thanksgiving? All the delicious turkey, creamy mashed potatoes, tasty green bean casserole, and mouth-watering pecan pie. While your mouth may be saying “Yes!”, your waistline is calling out “Whoa!” – and for good reason. Thanksgiving can be a real challenge if you are watching your weight. But you don’t have to sabotage your diet. Here are a few tips to help you navigate the buffet table without depriving yourself.

Eat before you eat. This may sound counterproductive, but if you eat a wholesome breakfast and lunch you can avoid overeating Thanksgiving dinner later. That way you’ll have more control over your appetite because we tend to eat too much when hungry.

Go light on the calories. Many Thanksgiving goodies are loaded with extra fat and sugar, including mashed potatoes with all the butter and sweet potatoes covered in marshmallows. Recipes can be healthier by making a few substitutions, such as fat-free chicken broth to make gravy or plain yogurt in casseroles. When possible, choose breast meat rather than leg meat and remember to remove the high-calorie skin from your meat.

One size doesn’t fit all. Just because certain dishes are offered doesn’t mean you have to sample every one. Avoid the all-you-can-eat mentality and limit yourself to smaller portions if you cannot control the ingredients used in a dish. Good serving sizes include about a baseball size serving of fruit, a deck of cards size portion of meat, and a computer mouse size helping of veggies.

Don’t cover your whole plate. There’s no need to pile your plate high with every food that is offered. Look over the buffet table first and then make your selections. Opt for reasonable-sized portions of holiday favorites that are served only once a year. Save room for dessert by skipping seconds.

Eat s-l-o-w-l-y. By savoring and chewing every bite thoroughly and putting your eating utensil down between bites you can enjoy your meal and be satisfied with one plate of food. Leftovers are better the next day anyway. Pace yourself and eat only until you feel full. Drink plenty of water and try to keep alcohol down to a minimum since calories from alcoholic drinks can add up quickly.

Put down your fork and go for some fresh air. Spread out the food and fun by going for a walk after your main meal and then having dessert later. It’s a great way to get in some exercise and spend quality time with your family.

If you are eating out for your Thanksgiving meal, ask for food that is steamed, grilled or broiled rather than fried or sautéed. Request that sauces and dressing be served on the side and watch out for super-sized portions that tempt you to eat too much. Try not to be overly hard on yourself if you overeat. Thanksgiving is, after all, just one day and you can be careful about what you eat over the next few days and then exercise enough to balance your overindulgence.
