Breast cancer screening

We offer advanced breast imaging and diagnostic technology designed to identify and detect breast cancer, including:

  • 3D mammogram
  • 3D stereotactic breast biopsy
  • Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Breast ultrasound
  • MRI-guided biopsy
  • Needle localization procedure for surgical biopsy
  • Sentinel node injection
  • Ultrasound-guided core biopsy

In addition, our imaging center offers DEXA scanning. A DEXA scan is a noninvasive bone density test to determine your bone strength and your potential risk for osteoporosis.

Mammograms

Mammography is medical imaging that uses low-dose X-rays to see inside the breasts and for most women it is the best way to find breast cancer in an early stage.

Our breast health specialists offer 3D mammograms. This advanced technology, also known as tomosynthesis, combines multiple X-rays to create a three-dimensional image of the breast and is especially helpful for women with dense breast tissue.

We are the first hospital in Tennessee to offer 3D stereotactic prone breast biopsy. This leading-edge technology uses 3D mammography to target even the faintest calcifications and subtle lesions while allowing you to comfortably lie on a table instead of standing up during the biopsy.

Scheduling your screening appointment

You can schedule a mammogram without a written order, but having a current primary care physician is required. All other exams require a written order from your physician.

If you have results from prior mammograms, breast ultrasounds or MRI scans from another facility, please send them to the breast center before your appointment or bring them with you to your appointment. Not having access to these prior images may delay the results of your current exam.

If you have a breast lump, nipple discharge, skin change or pain within one area of the breast, please contact your physician prior to scheduling your imaging appointment.

You can call The Women's Health & Imaging Center at (615) 342-5018.
