Breast Health

An important aspect of women’s health

Having a mammogram isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time! But the fact is, they are vital – since they are still the most effective form of early detection for breast cancer. Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 98 percent. We’re here to help keep you from becoming just another statistic. The Imaging Center at Placentia-Linda Hospital offers the latest advancements in breast cancer detection. You can expect:

  • A dedicated team of breast care specialists in a patient-focused environment
  • The latest in digital mammography including 2D and 3D screening and diagnostic mammography
  • A relaxing, spa-like facility
  • A nurturing and caring staff
  • Next day appointments

Who Needs a Screening?

Many women with breast cancer have no symptoms, which makes screening even more important. The American College of Radiology (ACR) guidelines for mammography recommends annual screening mammography for women starting at age 40.

If you think you may have higher than average risk for breast cancer, please talk with your doctor about recommendations for screenings and frequency. For example, the presence of certain genes like BRCA may put you at risk to get an especially aggressive type of cancer at an early age. Know your risk for greater peace of mind.

Why 3D Mammography?

3D Mammography, also known as Tomosynthesis, is ideal for women receiving a baseline screening, those with dense breast tissue and/or women with a personal history of breast cancer because it gives radiologists a more detailed view of the breast tissue, helping to find smaller cancers earlier. The advanced technology also decreases the number of false positives. No one wants to go back for a second mammogram, which may not be covered by insurance.
