When it comes to breast health, early detection is the best prevention. Women should have regular mammograms beginning at age 40, or sooner if recommended by their healthcare provider.
St. Luke's uses state-of-the-art technology, including digital mammography (Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™), to screen for and diagnose breast health issues. Digital mammography is the newest technology available for early breast cancer detection and has many benefits, including higher detection rates in some patients, fewer recalls and lower doses of radiation.
In addition to mammograms, St. Luke's Breast and Bone Health also provides breast ultrasounds, biopsies, needle localizations and cyst aspirations. Screenings are available at our two convenient locations - in the PCI Medical Pavilion and on St. Luke's Marion Campus.
Walk-in mammograms available
Both locations make breast cancer prevention easier for busy women. St. Luke's Breast and Bone Health, now offer walk-in mammograms. By simply walking in, you can receive a mammogram at a time that's convenient for you with a doctor's order. Preference is given to patients with appointments. Walk-ins are available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. For more information, call (319) 286-4344.
