Early Detection Saves Lives.

If detected early, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer exceeds 96 percent. Mammograms are among the best early detection methods, yet 13 million U.S. women 40 years of age or older have never had a mammogram.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation estimates over 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 40,000 die each year. One in eight women either currently has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Approximately, 1,700 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 450 will die each year.

Because early detection is so critical, we partner with the UW Health Radiology department for reading and interpretive services. That means that radiologists, specializing in breast health, will review your mammogram. You get the same care and service you would get at a larger facility while staying close to home.

Here, we use the best available imaging technology in our Radiology Department, including Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAM™ technology – the only technology proven to detect breast cancer 15  months earlier. And if you should need more comprehensive care beyond your screening, we’re here to take care of you. One of the ways is with our Healing Breast Care Center located in the hospital.

The National Cancer Institute and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommend that women in their forties and older have mammograms every one to two years. A complete early detection plan also includes regular clinical breast examinations by a trained medical professional, like your primary care provider. In addition, monthly breast self-exams are strongly suggested.
