3D mammography

State-of-the-art 3D imaging technology. Highly qualified staff. Prompt, friendly care. That's what you can expect when you schedule your mammogram at the Breast Health Center Connection for Women at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center.

Advanced 3D digital mammogram technology

At Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center, we believe women deserve high-quality mammograms—whether they need breast cancer screenings or diagnostic mammograms triggered by breast cancer symptoms. Crisp, clear images make a big difference. That's why we offer our patients 3D mammography using the tomosynthesis system.

During a 3D mammogram, we take pictures of many thin layers of breast tissue. It's like flipping through the pages of a book to see each layer one by one. The 3D view could help us to find small tumors that otherwise might be missed.

And because 3D technology lets us examine many image "slices," it's also less likely that you'll need to return for a repeat mammogram. We'll get the information we need the first time.

Our R2 image checker software can help you avoid repeat mammograms too. This software acts as a second set of eyes, highlighting areas of concern that our technicians should examine. That extra check helps to ensure diagnostic accuracy.

Quality, comfort and convenience

In addition to providing a high-quality mammogram, we want your experience to be both quick and comfortable. Here are a few ways we do that:

  • Our new machines calculate the precise compression needed to get a good image.
  • We provide soft MammoPad breast cushions to warm the machines and reduce discomfort.
  • Our efficient scheduling process and prompt service ensure that you can move through your appointment quickly, without wasting time with waiting.

Expertise you can trust

Our licensed and registered mammography technologists will perform your exam. A highly experienced board-certified radiologist interprets the results. And you can expect to receive the results of your exam promptly.

Our mammography team is warm and welcoming, and they work hard to help support you through your exam. Since many women come to our facility each time they need a mammogram, we often form relationships with our patients. Don't be surprised if we ask about your family or your career. We truly care about you as a person.

We are open Monday through Friday and accept orders from any healthcare provider.
