Yearly screenings are recommended for all women age 40 or above, and nearly all insurers cover this annual screening.
Your physician will typically receive the results of your screening within 7 to 10 days.
Services offered include:
- Digital Screening Mammography
- Diagnostic Mammography

- Breast Ultrasound
- Stereotactic and Ultrasound Biopsy
Women with denser breast tissue now have the option of advanced 3D mammography, which detects abnormalities previously hidden. Research shows that 3D mammography increases cancer detection by up to 40%*. While many insurance companies will only cover this advanced technology if the breast tissue is too dense to view clearly with 2D technology, there are some who cover 3D regardless of tissue density. You may want to call your insurer in advance to see if you have this additional preventive option.
