Getting a mammogram is still the gold standard for breast cancer detection and the American Cancer Society recommends an annual mammography screening for all healthy women beginning at age 40. Mammograms help doctors detect abnormalities and changes in breast tissue before they start to cause symptoms. Early detection and treatment of breast cancer can be lifesaving.
Dignity Health Central Coast offers mammography services in several locations. Digital mammography with Computer Aided Detection technology, breast ultrasound, and stereotactic breast biopsy are available. Our team is made up of board-certified radiologists and registered imaging technologists. They work together to produce quality images and evaluations for our patients and their doctors.
