Features of our breast care program

Our staff provides an exceptional mammography experience uniquely designed around your convenience. We do everything we can to give you a comfortable experience in a calming, spa-like environment.

Women's imaging services

Our hospital is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. All our technologists are registered and specially trained in mammography imaging. Our radiologists are board certified and significantly exceed the qualifications required to interpret mammograms. We have also trained with world-renowned experts, providing a full range of women's screening and diagnostic services, including:

  • 2D screening mammography
  • 3D mammography (tomosynthesis)
  • Bone density testing
  • Diagnostic breast ultrasound
  • Diagnostic mammography
  • Stereotactic biopsy
  • Ultrasound-guided biopsy

Our breast screening clinic features advanced comfort technology that is shaped like a woman's breast to provide a more relaxed mammogram experience.

If you have been given a breast cancer diagnosis at another facility, but are feeling unsure of it, our radiologists are happy to offer a second opinion. We will review your previous results and order further testing as needed.

Screening mammogram

Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Rose Medical Center recommends annual mammogram screenings for women between 40 and 74 years old. A woman’s decision to undergo breast cancer screening should be made in consultation with her physician. Patients who are considered high risk for developing breast cancer should consult their physician about when to begin screening.

Abnormal mammogram results

If our radiologist finds something abnormal in your images, our team will contact you within two business days of your appointment to schedule a follow-up visit. This visit may involve taking additional images and/or performing a biopsy, both of which are done in our breast center.

If your mammogram or breast ultrasound results in a cancer diagnosis, we are here for you. Our hospital provides a comprehensive cancer care program, featuring advanced treatment methods and expert physicians. We will be by your side every step of the way on your path to survivorship.

How to prepare for your mammogram

We want you to feel comfortable even before you walk through our doors. Knowing what to expect is a crucial part of that.

Here are some things to think about when preparing for your mammogram:

  • Although the actual exam takes 15 to 20 minutes, please be aware that your appointment could take up to 45 minutes.
  • Consider scheduling during a time when you expect your breasts to be the least tender (such as avoiding the week before your menstrual cycle).
  • Please do not wear any deodorant, powder or lotion under your arms or on your breasts—these products can impact the imaging results.
  • Wear a two-piece outfit so you only have to remove the top.

Benign breast conditions

Women experience many changes in their breasts throughout their lives and even throughout each month. Some changes can be frightening as they mimic the signs and symptoms of breast cancer. The good news is, more often than not, women who undergo further testing with a biopsy are given a noncancerous diagnosis. In fact, an estimated 80 percent of breast biopsies result in a benign diagnosis.

The most common types of benign breast disease include:

  • Breast cysts
  • Fibrocystic breast disease
  • Fibroadenoma
  • Intraductal papillomas
  • Traumatic fat necrosis in the breast

If your benign condition is painful or causes discomfort, your physician may recommend treating it through surgery or medications. Other conditions may need no treatment at all. Some mild breast conditions put you at a higher risk for breast cancer. In this case, your doctor will recommend ongoing monitoring.

Occasionally, your physician may recommend follow-up care on your benign breast condition through surgery or medication. Our expert breast team includes a coordinator to help guide you to meet with our dedicated team and learn about evaluation and risk assessment recommendations.

High-risk breast conditions

It's important for women with high-risk breast conditions to work closely with a breast care expert and develop a personalized breast cancer screening and prevention plan. In some cases, this may involve more frequent screenings, genetic testing, preventive medications and prophylactic surgery.

  • Genetic mutations
  • Family history
  • Dense breast tissue
  • Atypical hyperplasia
  • Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS)
  • Radiation exposure
  • Personal history of breast cancer
