Our Approach

There are many ways to take control of your breast health care, including performing monthly breast self-exams and undergoing yearly mammograms. Mammograms are the most effective way to find breast cancer, because they can detect lumps up to two years before they can be felt. When detected early, breast cancer is a curable disease. And the two most important things you can do to protect yourself are monthly breast self-exams and annual mammograms.

Mammogram and Miraluma Breast Imaging

Our technicians make mammograms using X-rays to take images of the breast from different angles to detect and diagnose breast disease. Miraluma breast imaging uses a small amount of a radioactive substance to highlight abnormal tissue. If either test method detects suspicious areas in the breast or surrounding tissue, your physician may take a biopsy to check for cancer.
