3D Mammography

Early detection is key!

The providers and staff at Newport Hospital and Health Services care about your health and want to help you decide your best option. Mammography and regular examinations by your physician ensure the earliest possible detection of breast cancer. Early detection allows a wider range of treatment options and is a key factor for a cure.

When should I start?

Screening mammograms are recommended every 1 to 2 years. With the wide range of current recommendations, it is often best to develop a personalized breast cancer screening plan with your primary care provider. Self-referral is also accepted; however, we encourage patients to speak with their provider prior to making an appointment for mammography.

Your personalized breast cancer screening plan will take into account your age, family history and previous mammography screening results. This proactive, informed approach will allow you to make informed decisions and review your options.

Who does it?
Our highly skilled mammographers are certified by The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists in Mammography. They are committed to their patients, for both comfort and accurate diagnosis.

How do I prepare for my mammogram?
On the day of your mammogram you should not wear any deodorant on your underarms or, perfume or lotion on your torso because these can interfere with the quality of your images. And remember it’s a great idea to schedule your exam when your breasts are the least likely to be tender.
