Mammography

Expert Care. Compassionate Support.

Your mother, your sister, your daughter, you. The statistics are hard to ignore. One woman in eight will get breast cancer in her lifetime. One in three, older than 40, will be diagnosed with a breast health concern.

Mammograms use low energy X-rays to examine the breast as a diagnostic and screening tool to detect the early presence of breast cancer. Mammograms are recommended annually for women age 45 to 54. Women 55 and older can switch to mammograms every 2 years, or continue yearly screening.
