Breast Cancer Screenings
One in eight women living in the U.S. will get breast cancer in their lifetime. As the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., early detection of breast cancer results in a five year survival rate of 98 percent. For most women 40 and over, an annual mammogram is the best way of finding breast cancer early.
For high-quality screening, CHI St. Luke's Health Brazosport offers the latest in breast cancer screening by using a digital mammography system called tomosysnthesis or 3D breast imaging. The digital mammography unit offers incredibly clear breast images and an advanced ergonomic design, providing more patient comfort.. The 3D option aides in earlier cancer detection and reduces the number of women called back for a second mammogram. The hospital offers the 3D option as an addition to the patients’ high-quality 2D digital mammogram for a small fee of $50. Ask your physician about the 3D mammogram or call to schedule your appointment today.
A physician referral is required and the mammogram is covered by most insurance plans. To schedule your annual screening mammogram, please call 979-299-2888. To find a physician, please click here
