The Ann L. Baroco Center for Breast Health and Mammography at Pace is dedicated to the detection of breast cancer and provides on-site breast cancer screenings.
Mammography is the imaging of the breast that has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer early. The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women starting at the age of 40.
Mammograms allow the radiologist to have a closer look for breast lumps and changes in breast tissue. Mammograms can show small lumps or growths that a doctor or woman may not be able to feel when doing a breast exam. When reading a mammogram, doctors look for abnormalities, as well as changes from previous mammograms.
Ascension Sacred Heart offers digital mammography with computer-aided detection that provides and electronic "second opinion" of mammograms. The computer-aided detection reads and analyzes the films and marks suspicious areas that may be associated with cancer. This assists the radiologists by targeting areas on a mammogram that may warrant additional evaluation.
