Depending on your symptoms, your family history and the density of your breasts, breast imaging experts across the Sutter Health network can use a combination of imaging technologies to screen for and diagnose breast abnormalities. Mammography is the foundation of breast cancer screening, but we offer many additional imaging technologies to assess breast health. All of our technologies are accredited by the ACR and we are a recognized breast imaging center of excellence. Here are some of the services we provide:
Screening and Diagnostic Mammography
The Mills-Peninsula Breast Center utilizes Digital Breast Tomosynthsis, also known as 3D Mammography, for an even lower dose procedure that allows radiologists the best views of the entire breast to the chest wall. This technology has been proven to be the most effective screening modality for all women and all breast densities. If you feel a lump, have nipple discharge or a positive screening mammogram, a more focused diagnostic mammogram is performed.
