Mammogram Screenings

A mammogram is an x-ray examination of the breast. As a screening method for early detection of breast cancer, it is one of the most important procedures a woman can have. A mammogram is also used to diagnose cysts or other abnormalities. A physician order is not needed to schedule a screening mammogram if you are over 40. If further investigation is needed mammography-guided needle localization and stereotactic breast biopsies are also performed at McDonough District Hospital.

Studies have proven that 3D mammograms find more cancers than traditional 2D mammograms and also reduce the number of false positives. The 3D mammography offers more accurate detection, earlier diagnosis, better detection in dense breast tissue, less anxiety by reducing false positives, and is safer and more effective for detecting breast cancer earlier.

Two important aspects make the MDH Mammography stand out above the rest, the technology and the experienced staff.

“What separates MDH from the rest in mammography is our professional mammographers are experienced, caring, compassionate and personable with over 25 years of experience. They always take the time to explain the exam with the patient, listen to the patient’s health history, answer questions or concerns, educate the patient regarding breast health and more importantly ease the patient anxieties,” states Director of Radiology and Cardiopulmonary Milton Griffin.
