Mammograms are still the best defense for finding cancers at their smallest and earliest, most treatable stages.
The American Cancer Society recommends the following guidelines for early detection:
- Yearly mammograms beginning at age 40
- Clinical breast exam every three years for women in their 20s and 30s and yearly for women 40+
- Breast MRI (in addition to mammography) for women with certain family history or genetic tendency
For women at high risk based on certain risk factors, including a strong family history of breast cancer or BRCA1 or BRAC2 gene mutations, a Mammogram and Breast MRI are recommended every year. Women at moderately increased risk should talk to their provider about the benefits of adding a Breast MRI to their yearly Mammogram.
When you choose CMIC for your Mammogram or Breast MRI, you are selecting quality imaging services at a price that is less than hospital-affiliated imaging providers.
With convenient early morning and evening appointments, we are here for you when you need us.
