Breast health is an important part of your well-being. From adolescence to adulthood, your breasts will continue to change over time. Self-exams help you become familiar with your breasts so you know what’s normal for your body. As part of your preventative care visits, our providers will perform screenings and will recommend mammograms as needed.
Stevens Community Medical Center is an American College of Radiology (ACR) accredited facility. That means SCMC and its personnel has gone through a comprehensive review to earn accreditation status by the ACR. When you see the gold seal of accreditation, you can rest assured that the facility will meet the highest level of patient safety standards and image quality.
Important reasons to get screened:
- 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
- 8 out of 9 women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history.
- With early detection, the five-year survival rate is almost 100%.
Stevens Community Medical Center provides both 2D and 3D mammography options. The Genius 3D™ exam allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer so instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.
