Mammography

Mammography

Early detection is the key to successful cancer treatment. How many times have you heard that? We hope you've heard it enough that you follow your age-specific guidelines for regular exams and mammograms.

Our care includes screenings, 3D and 2D digital mammography, ultrasound and biopsies (ultrasound-guided core biopsy or stereotactic breast biopsy and MRI). It is our pledge that you will be treated with warmth and respect (including honoring appointment times) by our entire team. The Dupont Difference is evident when you enter The Dupont Hospital Center for Breast Health.

The Dupont Difference & Mammography
For your convenience, you do not need a doctor's order for a screening mammogram. You should check with your insurance to determine coverage. Appointments are suggested, but we also try to accommodate walk-ins (no promises, though). If you are under a physician's care for any ongoing medical condition related to breast health, we do require a referral from your physician.

Effective Technology
Not only do we have a compassionate, experienced mammography staff, but we've also pursued technology that assists us in reviewing mammograms. One of these tools is called the R2 Image Checker. We like to think of it as a spell-check program for mammograms. After one of our board-certified radiologists has reviewed your mammogram, we let the R2 system look at it. The R2 system can detect variations in the black, gray and white that the human eye may not be able to perceive. If the system finds something unexpected, we'll work with you and your physician to determine exactly what the R2 system saw.

We're proud to add digital mammography to our services, providing exceptional detail, improving accuracy of diagnosis and resulting in shorter exam times.
