Breast Imaging Services
A doctor detects and diagnoses abnormalities in your breast tissue through tests such as:
- Digital Mammogram – Provides a better view of your tissue than a traditional film-screen mammogram and can detect Cancer earlier
- 3-D Mammogram (breast tomosynthesis) – Can detect breast cancer sooner than traditional mammography and reduce the likelihood of false alarms; ask for 3-D mammography if a previous mammogram revealed that you have dense breast tissue
- Breast Ultrasound – Uses sound waves to examine your tissue if you have cancer symptoms or an abnormal mammogram result
- Breast MRI – Shows clear pictures of parts of your tissue that are hard to see on a mammogram or ultrasound
- Stereotactic Breast Biopsy – Uses mammography to pinpoint a sample of tissue that will be removed and examined for cancer
If you or any woman you know age 40 to 64 needs help paying for a mammogram, we can help.
