Screening and diagnostic digital mammography is performed on state of the art equipment. Breast Ultrasound and Breast MRI are also available to aid in diagnosis of breast cancer or breast symptoms. Registration for a mammogram or any other breast procedure is done at the desk in the Outpatient Department. Following registration, you change into a gown and a questionnaire will be filled out with information on your past history. When this is complete, a technologist will take you to a mammography suite designed to make you feel at ease. The technologist will explain and perform the test and a Radiologist who specializes in Breast Health will interpret your study and send results to your referring physician.

Providence Medical Center Adds 3D Mammography for Breast Imaging By Pat McBratney Providence Medical Center has announced that it is the latest health care facility to add new state-of-the-art breast imaging technology called 3D breast tomosynthesis for better breast cancer detection. True Breast Tomosynthesis is 3D mammogram technology that is proven to detect breast cancer better than traditional 2D mammography alone. The images are assembled into a 3D study so doctors can see the breast tissue in fine detail. The 3D image allows them to see clearly through breast tissue that may be overlapping, or through the tissue of women with dense breasts. Mortiz, M.
