Mammogram Screening

Mammogram to help in the early detection of breast cancer and diagnosis of breast lumps
Digital mammography at the Texas Health Breast Center

Current rates suggest that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some time in their lives. Early detection of breast cancer is vital — and the American Cancer Society reports that getting a high-quality mammogram and having a clinical breast exam on a regular basis are the most effective ways to detect breast cancer early.

An annual mammogram screening is strongly recommended for women age 40 and older. Appointments can be made without a physician referral.

Why Choose Texas Health for Your Mammogram Screening?

  • Added Convenience: A digital mammography exam usually takes half the time of a traditional exam and the images are readily available on the digital monitor.
  • Improved Clarity: Digital mammography gives better visibility of the breast, particularly near the skin line, chest wall and in women with dense breast tissue. Digital images are also helpful for women with implants and for imaging patients with known abnormalities.
  • Image Manipulation Capabilities: Your physician has viewing options never before possible with the unique ability to enhance certain areas to get a more precise picture of your condition. Your digital breast images can be zoomed in and out, the contrast can be lightened or darkened and the radiation dose is less than film images.
