Identifying breast cancer early is critical to treating it successfully, as well as improving quality of life. We offer 3D mammograms, which provide earlier and more accurate detection compared to 2D mammograms, especially for women with dense breast tissue.

Mammograms must be ordered by a primary care provider or an OB/GYN. 

If you have a MyChart account, you can request a screening mammogram under Visits.

Why do I need a mammogram every year?

  • 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their life
