Caring for your breast health is one of the most important things you can do to stay healthy. Monthly self-exams and early detection with annual mammogram screenings is the best defense against breast cancer as mammography is the only screening method consistently proven to reduce deaths from breast cancer.
American College of Radiology (ACR) recommends annual screening beginning at age 40 for women at average risk. Women at higher than average risk may qualify to start screening earlier and for additional screening procedures.
Hawaii Pacific Health Women’s Centers and clinic locations provide state-of-the-art digital mammography services that help doctors better identify suspicious tissue and reduce screening times, retakes and call-back appointments.
We are proud to offer both traditional digital mammography (a two-dimensional photo of your breast) and tomosynthesis (a series of images taken from multiple angles that are converted into a three-dimensional image).
