What is Mammography?
Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose X-ray system for examination of the breasts. Mammograms are the best screening tool available to detect breast cancer at its earliest, most treatable stages.
The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and American Cancer Society recommend that women should have a baseline mammogram between ages 35-40. Beginning at age 40, women should have an annual mammogram. It can detect breast cancers before they can be felt.
Mammograms are available at our Breast Health Center or you can have a mammogram on the mobile mammography coach in your community. Call 704-403-1729 to schedule your mammogram today! At the Breast Health Center, a facility of Carolinas HealthCare System our goal is to enable patients to receive the best care in diagnosis treatment, education, research, and supportive services in the fight against breast cancer.
