Breast health begins with YOU! Knowledge of your own body is often the most powerful weapon against breast cancer. That’s why it’s so important that you perform monthly breast self-exams and have regular breast exams and screening mammograms.

3-D Mammography

At the Women’s Center, we want you to have the best and the best for breast health is tomosynthesis (3-D mammography), the latest mammogram technology. This screening tool is used to supplement traditional mammography. By producing multiple images through the breast, tomosynthesis allows the radiologist to visualize the breast tissue in layers which helps to distinguish areas that need to be evaluated. As a result, fewer patients need to be called back for additional testing since breast tissue can be seen more clearly. In addition, more cancers can be found early than with conventional 2-D mammography alone. 

Breast Cancer Screening by Specialists

We use a team approach to treat our patients. In addition to core medical team members (radiologists, surgeons, oncologists and nurses), we also include on-site key ancillary providers (behavioral health, nutrition, integrative medicine, sexual health and menopause specialists with special interested in breast health) when developing individualized treatment plans.

Your health is important to us and should be at the top of your priority list. By taking advantage of our comprehensive breast health program, you are exposed to the best and most advanced care in the region. If you would like to schedule an appointment for a mammogram or with one of our providers, please call (513) 475-UC4U.
