WVU Cheat Lake Physicians houses radiology services from WVU Hospitals that offers:
- Digital Screening Mammography – Part of the Betty Puskar Breast Cancer Center
- Digital Bone Density (DXA) Scans

WVU Hospitals radiologists review the images and provide results to the ordering physician who will then contact the patient with any important information.
Here at Cheat Lake Physicians, an American College of Radiology accredited satellite facility of the WVU Betty Puskar Breast Care Center, we perform screening mammograms. Screening mammograms are performed when you have no symptoms of breast disease.
We use soft touch mammography pads, which provide a more comfortable exam.
To have a mammogram, you will need to contact your physician, who will then write an order for the mammogram to be performed.
Digital Bone Density (DXA) Scans
A digital bone density or DXA scan is a painless exam ordered by your physician to determine bone loss. The scan is most often done on the lower spine and hips.
DXA scans are the most accurate method for diagnosing osteoporosis and are very accurate in determining fracture risk.
If you are scheduled for a DXA scan, do not take any calcium supplements or multivitamins the day of your exam.
Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive test that helps doctors diagnose and treat medical conditions.
