A mammogram is a safe, low
-dose x-ray of the breast. It is currently the most effective method of detecting breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages. Early detection of breast cancer may allow more treatment options. It could mean saving your breast or your life. Please remember The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammography screenings for women age 40 and over. This screening can save your life.
The risk of breast cancer increases as a woman ages, if she has never had children, or if she had her first child after age 30. Studies also suggest that the risk may be higher for women who eat high-fat diets and those who smoke cigarettes. If you are not sure how frequently you should obtain a mammogram, consult your physician.

Free parking is available for Breast Imaging patients in the Emergency Care Unit/Breast Imaging Center Parking Lot at the corner of Gilbert and Bloomington Streets. You will be given a token to exit the parking lot.
Note: Patients covered by Medicare will be required to sign an Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) before the mammogram. An ABN is needed because Medicare pays for a screening mammogram once every year. There is a frequency limitation on this service.
