Schedule A Mammogram

In the United States, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes. Eighty percent of these women do not have any of the reported risk factors, other than being female and aging. The key to surviving breast cancer is early diagnosis. Regular screening mammograms, breast self-exams and yearly breast exams by your physician can help.

Why Have a Mammogram?

A mammogram is the first line of defense against breast cancer, and it remains the most reliable diagnostic tool for doctors. The American Cancer Society recommends a baseline mammogram between the ages of 40-45.

2D Screening Mammogram

In 2D mammography, two X-ray images are taken, one from the top, and a second from the side. The affordable Care Act mandates that all insurance plans cover screening mammograms without cost.

3D Screening Mammogram

Three-dimensional (3D) mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, is the latest mammogram technology being used for breast cancer screening. Tomosynthesis is recommended for women with dense breast tissue. Some insurance policies require out-of-pocket costs for 3D mammograms.

3D Diagnositc Mammogram

3D Diagnostic mammograms are used after suspicious results on a screening mammogram or after some signs of breast cancer alert the physician to check the tissue.

  • A lump
  • Breast pain
  • Nipple discharge
  • Thickening of skin on the breast
  • Changes in the size or shape of the breast

A diagnostic mammogram can help determine if these symptoms are indicative of the presence of cancer.
