Breast cancer is much more treatable when detected in its early stages. Mammograms, a set of breast images taken with low dose X-rays, are effective routine screening tests that have been proven to find breast cancer early. For women with an average risk for developing breast cancer, a mammogram is the best breast cancer screening test available.
We offer state-of-the-art digital mammography equipment, including 3-D mammography, an innovative screening and diagnostic breast imaging tool that improves the early detection of breast cancer.
A routine screening mammogram is taken on a regular basis, usually annually, to screen for changes in the breast. Several images of each breast are taken, from the top facing down and from the side.
A diagnostic mammogram is taken when an area of concern has been found in the breast. Though similar to a screening mammogram, diagnostic imaging usually includes extra breast images and additional manipulating of the breast tissue in order to examine the concerned area more closely.
Our mammography technical staff are all registered with specific credentials for mammography.
