Mammography and Breast Care

We provide state-of-the-art mammography services in a convenient and comfortable setting. Accredited by the American College of Radiology – a distinction held since 1995 – our Breast Care services are fully digital.

Using digital mammography, our team captures clear images of the breast that radiologists use in making breast care evaluations. The computerized images are stored on the medical center's Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACs) where doctors can compare images from year-to-year looking for any changes or differences. Services include routine screenings, diagnostic studies for cancer and breast disease as well as non-malignant disorders such as benign cysts, and tumors. NRMC also provides vacuum assisted breast biopsy and breast needle localization for the diagnosis of breast cancer.

All women age 40 and older or those with a family history of breast cancer are encouraged to get a screening mammogram at age 40 and then annually thereafter. Remember: Early detection saves lives.
