Mammogram

Breast cancer screening and mammography play an important role in diagnosing breast cancer earlier when treatment is potentially less complicated. At Piedmont Medical Center, we provide digital mammogram and breast screening services to help diagnose breast cancer.

Early Detection May Save Lives

Breast cancer is one of the most common causes of death for women in the United States. Leading risk factors including advanced age and family history may increase the likelihood of its occurrence. Each year, around 200,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed.

If you are a woman over the age of 40, you should get screening mammograms every year.  Breast cancer can occur at any age, but it is more likely to occur after age 40. The earlier the diagnosis, the better your chance for survival. At Piedmont Medical Center, we use the most advanced diagnostic technique called digital mammography that provides quicker and more accurate results than conventional mammography techniques. Coupled with the skills and compassion of our imaging experts, we provide you the best caring environment where you can conveniently discuss all your healthcare related needs and get expert support and guidance.

Your First Line of Defense Against Breast Cancer

Increase your chances of defeating breast cancer with Piedmont Medical Center’s early screening mammography services. Mammography is a relatively painless procedure that is used to detect breast cancer through low-dose x-rays. The American Cancer Society recommends that women should get their first mammogram done at the age of 40. Don’t put off your mammogram, it could save your life.

Piedmont Medical Center provides you an opportunity to ensure your health with Digital Mammography services, a more advanced 3D imaging of the breast tissue, as well. We have a team of skilled and experienced staff who not only perform the procedure, but also offer you advice regarding routine breast screening and support.

We offer screening mammograms at three of our imaging locations. No physician order is required for screening mammograms.

Piedmont Medical Center was the First Hospital in the Region to offer 3D Mammography

Digital 3D mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, provides physicians with a clearer image of deep breast tissue and decreases the need for further examinations.  This advanced technology can help distinguish superimposed tissue from real abnormalities, leading to fewer callbacks and less anxiety for women. Tomosynthesis may also find abnormalities at earlier stages, when breast cancer is more treatable.  (A physician will determine whether an order is required for a patient to have 3D mammography.)

Breast Cancer Screening

Our team is ready to provide you with comprehensive screening services including:

  • 3D digital screening mammography
  • Digital diagnostic mammography
  • Stereotactic biopsies
  • Ultrasound-guided biopsies
  • Breast Ultrasound
  • Breast MRI
  • Bone density screenings
  • Myriad genetic testing for breast cancer

Why 3D Mammography?

3D Mammography, also known as Tomosynthesis, is ideal for women with dense breasts because it gives radiologists a more detailed view of the breast tissue, helping to find smaller cancers earlier. The advanced technology also decreases the number of false positives. No one wants to go back for a second mammogram, which may not be covered by insurance.
