Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women. The key to survival is early detection through monthly self exams and annual mammography. However, a woman's fears about breast health procedures may determine whether or not she will have routine mammograms. The Breast Health Center responds to these fears by offering an all-female staff in a private, more personal and comfortable setting. Plus, Baptist has eliminated the anxiety of waiting for results. With an on-site, dedicated radiologist, patients at the Baptist Breast Health Center receive their results before they leave.* In addition, the Breast Health Center's digital mammography equipment includes the Mammopad, foam cushioning that has been clinically proven to reduce the discomfort or pain women may experience during a mammogram. Baptist uses the ImageChecker System, the first FDA approved Computer Aided Detection (CAD) System for breast imaging. ImageChecker assists radiologists during their review of screening mammograms by identifying areas on the mammogram that contain features associated with cancer that may warrant a second review.
*Radiologist must have prior films at the time of your appointment.
