What is Breast Imaging?

Regular screening mammograms can detect breast cancer at its earliest stages. Successful treatment and survival rates for breast cancer patients are dramatically affected by early detection due to mammograms.

Diagnostic mammograms are used to evaluate any abnormal findings you may have on a screening mammogram. They can investigate a new breast lump, breast pain, unusual skin appearance, nipple thickening or nipple discharge.

Northwest Radiology is here to help you with all scanning procedures for the very best in breast health. When you come to us for your mammogram, you are in good hands.
