Breast imaging centers of excellence
Where you’re screened matters. Getting the most accurate test depends on the quality of the screening equipment as well as the expertise of the technicians conducting the screening and the radiologists reading the mammograms. Legacy Health uses reduced radiation 3-D digital mammography for the fastest, most accurate results with the lowest radiation exposure possible.
Through a rigorous application process and onsite survey, all Legacy Health Breast Health Centers are accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, and are designated by the American College of Radiology as Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence. ACR accreditation is recognized as the gold standard in medical imaging.
When to have your first mammogram
Nearly every major medical association with expertise in breast cancer recommends screening should start at age 40.
About 20%, or 1 in 5, of Legacy Health's breast cancer patients are under age 50. Don't delay your mammogram!
