Get the screening that is right for you

At Ascension St. John Breast Center we provide comprehensive breast imaging services that include:
- 3D Mammograms (Tomosynthesis): This 3D imaging technology increases the overall detection of breast cancer and reduces the recall rate for screenings – which is a very important issue. Tomosynthesis is an imaging X-ray technique used for the early detection of breast cancer and can help find cancers in dense breast tissue.
- Breast ultrasound: This uses sound waves to create images of the breast. These ultrasound images are referred to as sonograms. Breast ultrasound is a non-invasive test that can aid in diagnosing benign and malignant disease.
- Breast MRI: This is performed to aid in the diagnosis of breast cancer or breast symptoms. MRI allows us to see areas of concern that might not be visible under mammography or ultrasound.
- Bone density tests (DEXA scan): This is performed to evaluate patients to find and treat osteoporosis and to help prevent fractures that can lead to disability.
- 3D biopsy/stereotactic biopsy: This uses mammography technology for locating areas of concern.The radiologist obtains breast tissue samples that are then sent to the lab for the pathologist to analyze.
- Ultrasound-guided biopsy: This uses sound waves to locate area of concern.The radiologist obtains breast tissue samples that are then sent to the lab for the pathologist to analyze.
