We now offer innovative new technology – Digital Mammography! 3D mammography allows doctors to see breast tissue detail in a way never before possible to help find breast cancer at its earliest stages, when it is most treatable. 3D mammography is screening that can be done in conjunction with a traditional 2D digital mammogram. 3D mammograms have also been proven to reduce the need for follow-up breast exams.
When can I schedule my mammogram?
You can schedule your mammogram the same day as your annual well woman exam or a time that is convenient for you. You cannot have your screening mammogram performed if it has not been at least 365 days since your last exam. Please contact us to schedule your exam.
Which radiologist is reviewing my images?
All of our images are read by our local radiologist, Greensboro Radiology, who also read mammograms for The Breast Center.
How do I know if I need routine screening verses a diagnostic mammogram?
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer within the last 8 years, please continue to have your exam performed at a diagnostic facility.
Will you need my prior mammogram images?
Yes, depending on where you have been seen in the past we will ask you to sign a release to retrieve your prior images.
