Breast Health Center
Routine breast cancer screenings are a vital aspect of maintaining good breast health. Statistics show that regular mammogram screenings increase a woman’s chance of finding breast cancer in its earliest stages, which can improve long-term outcomes. At Elliot Breast Health Center, we encourage women to speak with their primary care provider to determine the best screening plan for them.
- Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (3D Mammography)
- Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) is an advanced form of mammography that uses low dose x-rays and computer reconstructions to create three-dimensional images of the breast. DBT has proven to be better at finding breast cancer than traditional 2D mammograms. Knowing this, we perform DBT on all mammograms.
- High-Risk Clinic
- Some women with a family history of breast cancer may be at increased risk of developing the disease. Our advanced nurse practitioner, Denise Jeffery, has specialized training in problem solving and genetics. She assists our high-risk patients in making decisions regarding risk assessment, genetic testing, and developing a personalized screening program. We offer all high-risk services on-site and in-person to ensure convenience, comfort, and confidentiality.
