Did you know that women over 40 should get a mammogram each year, unless otherwise instructed by their doctor?
At the Women’s Health and Imaging Center, we are committed to making your visit as pleasant and fast as possible. Our expert technicians will guide you to your private changing area, and will provide a locker to store your valuables during your visit. Once you are checked in, we offer a spa-like waiting area that promotes a calm environment while you are waiting for your screening.
We offer high-quality breast health services, such as 3D Mammography, or Tomosynthesis, that gives a better, clearer picture, especially if past mammogram results show you have dense breasts. Ask one of our providers about genetic testing that can show whether you were born with a higher risk of breast cancer.
