Learn how to perform a breast self examination.
Sanford provides mammography imaging services to detect early changes in breast health. With low-dose X-rays, our trained mammography technologists capture images that detect lumps, changes in tissue or calcifications too small to be found by physical exam. Sanford radiologists read each mammogram and provide results to patients and referring physicians.
Mammography is designed to provide early detection of breast cancer and is an important part of routine healthcare. According to the American Cancer Society, yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health.
