Digital Mammography

Mammography is the best screening technology in the early detection of breast cancer. Digital mammography is the gold standard for screening for early stage breast cancer.

Dense Breast Tissue

If you have been identified as having dense breast tissue, you are not alone. Every woman should be screened every year, and after age 40, should receive a clinical breast exam.

Whole Breast Ultrasound

A whole breast ultrasound, used in addition to mammography, is another way to detect breast cancers in women with dense-breast tissue.
