Diagnostic Imaging NW provides a full service mammography department. Using the most advanced medical technology our specialized clinicians provide screening and diagnostic mammograms, biopsies and other diagnostic tests.

A mammogram is a dedicated low dose X-ray exam of the breast tissue. Mammography is the most reliable screening method for breast cancer detection. The American Cancer Society, the American College of Radiology and the American Medical Association recommend initial mammograms for women beginning at the age of 40, and annual mammograms beginning at age 50.

*Tomosynthesis is a new technology which provides greater detail than conventional (2D) mammography. Rather than one superimposed image of the breast, this technology acquires thin "slices" through the breast tissue increasing early detection of breast cancer. Recent data suggests that screening mammograms performed with this 3D technology may be particularly helpful in patients with dense breast tissue.
