With gentle rounded corners and soft armrests to replace typical hand grips, you are able to rest your arm comfortably and relax your muscles which can ease compression and make for a faster, smoother mammogram experience.
Our 3D mammography systems also offer sharper, clearer images for improved diagnostic accuracy all while providing the lowest radiation dose of all FDA approved mammography systems.
Our Breast Center radiologists are specialists who only read breast imaging studies and look back as far as possible at your history of breast images for any subtle changes or abnormalities in order to provide the most accurate reading.
Should you have a breast cancer diagnosis, the Center’s compassionate nurse navigators provide personal guidance with scheduling appointments for tests and follow-up procedures, getting prescriptions, insurance questions, and any other help you may need. Our nurse navigators will explain every step throughout your journey.

The American Cancer Society reports that the chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer in her life is about one in eight. That is why increased awareness, education and early detection are important parts of breast healthcare.
A mammogram can reveal a tumor as much as two years before you or your healthcare professional can feel it. Following the American College of Radiology (ACR) guidelines, the Fortunato Breast Health Center recommends that you get annual mammography screening starting at age 40. In some higher risk situations, earlier screening or additional testing may be recommended.
If you are uninsured or underinsured, you may be eligible for no cost or discounted screenings through the Fortunato Breast Health Center’s Fund for Uninsured.
