Mammography

Women can schedule a mammogram at the Mammography Center, located in the Imaging Services Department. Regular mammograms are an important part of preventive health care for women aged 40 years and older. Most insurance plans cover the cost of a mammogram, and free or low-cost mammograms are available for women with limited income or insurance.

Broadlawns Medical Center now offers the newest and most advanced digital technology in breast cancer screening and prevention. We are proud to offer 3D Tomosynthesis Mammography which provides enhanced diagnostic quality when compared to screenings by other digital or traditional filming equipment. 3D Tomosynthesis allows the radiologist to scan through the breast tissue layers where other screening methods only show a one dimensional image of all tissue pressed into a one dimensional view plane. The new Hologic 3D Tomosynthesis system allows us to "peel back" the image layers looking at each slice independently which results in an exam quality other units lack. In dense tissue or individuals with abnormal exam history, it is easier to separate out abnormal findings with 3D Tomosynthesis. To make an appointment, please contact 515.282.2309.
