The American Cancer Society and the vast majority of health experts recommend that all women receive an annual mammogram beginning at age 40. That's because it’s the best way to detect breast cancer at its earliest, most treatable stage.
At Mount Carmel, we offer digital screening mammography read and interpreted by a team of expert radiologists with the highest level of skill. Appointments are easy to schedule and your results are available in just days. Patients who require a diagnostic mammogram receive their results before they leave. If an abnormality is found, we'll work closely with you, providing support and answers to your questions.
For women with dense breast tissue, Mount Carmel is proud to now offer automated breast ultrasound. When combined with your annual screening mammogram, automated breast ultrasound can help provide a more clear evaluation of dense breast tissue and help improve breast cancer detection.
Screening mammograms are available at each of our comfortable and convenient Women’s Health Centers and through our Mobile Mammography Coach.
