Mammography

Mammography ACR

Mammography continues to be the best screening method available for breast cancer. Improvements in imaging, such as digital mammography, produce fast, detailed images.

We recommend that all women age 40, or older have a yearly mammogram. However, women with an increased risk for breast cancer based on personal history, a strong family history or who have a genetic risk for cancer will need earlier screening and may need additional forms of screening beyond mammography. Guthrie offers these additional services, including breast ultrasound and breast MRI as part of its comprehensive breast imaging program.

Guthrie mammographers, including fellowship-trained subspecialists, are dedicated to breast imaging. Your digital images and their interpretation are part of your permanent electronic health record and so available to you and your physicians whenever necessary. Our services are available at several convenient locations in Pennsylvania and New York.
