This safe, non-invasive test uses sound waves to produce images of the internal breast structures so that lumps or other abnormalities can be diagnosed.
Screening mammography is the single most effective tool for detecting breast cancer and other diseases. It is also used as a preventive measure for women with no symptoms of breast disease. Both 2D and 3D mammography are available at Yuma Regional.
Our board-certified radiologists use MRI guidance to extract fluid or cells from the abnormal area for testing.
When a radiologist reviews your mammogram and sees a suspicious abnormality that can’t be felt in a physical exam, a stereotactic breast biopsy using mammography may be performed to obtain sample tissue for testing.
