Regular mammograms are key in maintaining breast health and diagnosing breast cancer early.
Our Mammography Services
Mammograms are specialized X-rays of the breast used to identify changes in the breast tissue. It is used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women who either have breast problems such as a lump, pain or nipple discharge, as well as for regular recommended breast cancer screenings. Mammography cannot prove that an abnormal area is cancer, but if it raises a significant suspicion of cancer, your doctor may order additional testing or a biopsy.
3D mammography (also called breast tomosynthesis) is available at the Women’s Imaging Suite in the Olathe Health Pavilion and at Miami County Medical Center. 3D mammograms help doctors to look at breast tissue in dozens of tiny layers, which means more precise imaging to reduce unnecessary, and sometimes worrisome callbacks. 3D mammography is especially effective for invasive and hard-to-find cancers, and for women who are high risk or who have dense breast tissue.
A $60 out-of-pocket charge may apply for a 3D mammogram, depending on your insurance coverage. It’s best to speak to your insurer before scheduling to verify benefits.
