Mammograms are specialized X-rays of the breast used to identify changes in the breast tissue. It is used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women who either have breast problems such as a lump, pain, or nipple discharge, as well as for women who have no breast complaints.
Mammography cannot prove that an abnormal area is cancer, but if it raises a significant suspicion of cancer, further testing or a biopsy may be recommended.
3D Mammography at the Women's Imaging Suite
Within the tranquil, spa-like setting of the Women’s Imaging Suite in the Olathe Medical Pavilion, we are dedicated to making every woman’s mammography experience as comfortable as it can possibly be.
The latest technology.
Olathe Medical Center is now offering 3D mammography (also called breast tomosynthesis), the most exciting advancement in breast cancer screening in 30 years. It enables doctors to look at breast tissue in dozens of 1 mm layers. This allows for more precise imaging to reduce unnecessary, and sometimes worrisome, callbacks. 3D mammography is especially effective for invasive and hard-to-find cancers, and for women who are high risk or who have dense breast tissue.
A $60 out-of-pocket charge may apply for a 3D mammogram, depending on your insurance coverage.
