Mammography and Breast Screenings

Mammograms are a vital screening as they are still the most effective form of early detection of breast cancer. At our Cancer and Wellness Center, we also offer same day live readings. Our radiologists carry ACR board certification and our technologists are ACR registered. We accept most insurances, and financial assistance is available for those who qualify.

Who Needs a Screening?

Many women with breast cancer have no symptoms, which makes screening even more important. The American Cancer Society recommendations for women of average risk (no personal or family history, or genetic predisposition):

Age 40-44 - optional mammogram recommended

Age 45-55 - annual mammogram recommended

Age 55+ - option for a mammogram every two years, or to continue annually

If you think you may have higher than average risk for breast cancer, please talk with your doctor about recommendations regarding types of screenings and frequency. For example, the presence of certain genes like BRCA may put you at risk to get an especially aggressive type of cancer at an early age. Knowing your risk can help give you greater peace of mind.

3D Mammography Services Offered

3D Mammography, also known as Tomosynthesis, is ideal for women with dense breasts because it gives radiologists a more detailed view of the breast tissue, helping to find smaller cancers earlier. The advanced technology also decreases the number of false positives. There is same day follow-up available if additional imaging is needed, which results also available that day.
