Mammograms and Screenings

Mammograms can reveal a breast cancer when it is so small that it would be undetected by you or your health provider. If cancers are found early, less invasive treatment methods may be used with better overall outcomes. We encourage our patients to begin annual screening mammography at age 40.

Mammogram Types and Breast Screenings

  • Annual screening mammography: Detects any overall change in the appearance of breast tissue, and is appropriate as an annual check-up for women without breast symptoms. 
  • Diagnostic mammography: Diagnostic mammograms are appropriate for women with a prior history of breast cancer or a new breast symptom. Detects overall changes in the appearance of breast tissue and often includes a focused exam on a particular area of concern. 
  • Breast Ultrasound: Uses sound waves to evaluate palpable lumps or to evaluate certain findings detected with mammography to determine if the area of concern is a fluid-filled cyst or a solid tissue mass. 
  • Breast Tomosynthesis: Also known as Genius™ 3D mammography, breast tomosynthesis takes multiple images of the breast, enabling radiologists to see through layers of tissue and examine areas of concern from multiple angles. The Genius™ 3D mammography exam is FDA approved as superior at detecting more invasive breast cancers and is recommended for women with dense breasts.

Family Cancer Risk Testing

If you have a family history of cancer, you might be a candidate for family cancer risk testing. This simple test can help your provider determine if you are at increased risk for developing cancer due to a genetic mutation passed down through your family.

Circle of 8

CircleOf8 logo1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.

Stay vigilant about your own health, and help hold your loved ones accountable for theirs by forming a Circle of Eight.

It’s easy to get started. Just choose eight women and on the eighth day of every month, remind your circle to attend to their breast health by performing a self-exam or by scheduling a mammogram. By banding together, we can help detect breast cancer earlier and increase the odds of survival.
