Digital Mammography

Digital Mammography is a state-of-the-art enhancement to traditional mammography and replaces x-ray film with solid-state detectors that convert x-rays into electrical signals. The electrical signals are used to produce images of the breast that can be seen on a computer screen or printed on special film similar to conventional mammograms. Digital Mammography also allows for shorter wait times for patients.
 
Digital Mammography has greatly aided in the detection of early breast cancers. Recent studies show that as many as one in five cancers are still overlooked because the mammographic changes may be very subtle. It is the logical next step for locating some of these cancers. Digital Mammography has a number of attributes that may help a small breast tumor stand out from surrounding normal tissue. It is recommended over conventional film mammography at detecting breast cancer especially for women who are under age 50 (no matter what level of breast tissue density they have), as well as for those who are premenopausal (defined as women who had a final menstrual period within 12 months of their mammogram).
 
We provide screening and diagnostic mammography services fully accredited by the State (MQSA), FDA, and ACR. To schedule a Digital Mammogram call 618-283-5466.

Mobile Mammography is being provided on Sarah Bush Lincoln’s mobile mammography van, which is available from 10 am to 2 pm on Wednesday and Thursday each week at SBL Fayette County Hospital.
