At Baptist Health, you'll find a variety of screening options, along with comprehensive, leading-edge diagnostic services, such as breast ultrasound, molecular breast imaging (MBI), MRI and biopsy capabilities. These diagnostic tests can often be done the same day a suspicious result is found on a mammogram.
Scheduling a Mammogram
The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women ages 45 and older, but you can start getting screened as early as 40. You do not need a referral from your primary care physician to schedule a mammogram.

3D Mammography exams vs. 2D Mammography exams
- 3D mammograms are more detailed and accurate than traditional mammograms, allowing physicians to examine breast tissue layer by layer.
- Studies show that 3D mammograms reduce the need to return for additional imaging by up to 40%.
- 3D mammograms, which are particularly effective for women with dense breast tissue, help physicians to find up to 40 percent more breast cancers without requiring additional imaging studies.
- 3D Mammography exams also reduce the rate of false positive readings, which identify normal tissue as an abnormality.
Talk to your physician about what type of mammogram is right for you.
