Personalized, compassionate breast screenings
Ascension St. Vincent delivers advanced digital imaging options, personalized for each patient. We provide breast ultrasounds, mammograms, biopsies and other screenings for women. Getting regular screenings may help find breast cancer early, when it is most treatable. That’s why it is important for women to get a mammogram every year, beginning at age 40. We’re dedicated to delivering care for your breast health that is right for you.
Get the screening that is right for you
Care teams at Ascension St. Vincent know that finding breast cancer early can help save lives. If your mother, sister, aunt or grandmother has been diagnosed with breast cancer, ask your doctor if you should have a breast screening test before the age of 40. Before you make your appointment, please make sure you have your mammogram referral from your doctor and bring it to your appointment.
At Ascension St. Vincent we deliver comprehensive breast imaging, including 3D mammograms (tomosynthesis). When used as a screening tool, 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.
