Women's imaging centers
Mammograms are the gold standard for breast cancer detection and are recommended for all women who are 50 to 74 years old, or younger, if recommended by their doctor. That is why we offer advanced 3D mammograms (tomography). They provide a series of detailed images of the breast which allows a physician to better evaluate breast tissue, layer by layer. This procedure makes fine details more visible, ensuring they are no longer hidden by overlapping tissue.
We are proud to offer these and other specialized imaging services at most of our MountainStar Healthcare hospitals.
Accredited imaging centers
The American College of Radiology gold seal of accreditation is awarded only to facilities meeting practice and technical standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists. All MountainStar Healthcare hospitals have this distinguished accreditation.
Mammogram preparation tips

- Bring your insurance card.
- If you have health insurance, mammograms are considered a free preventive measure under most insurance providers.
- Do not apply deodorant, powder or lotion on or around the breast or underarm areas.
- Wear a two-piece outfit.
