Online Mammography Appointment Scheduling With MyChart

 
HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital offers our patients and colleagues the ability to scheduling their Mammography appointments on-line with MyChart.

3D Mammography Available

 

This state-of-the-art technology allows St. Elizabeth’s Hospital to offer 3D Mammograms as a complement to 2D services, for patients meeting certain criteria including those who have a strong family history of breast cancer, and patients with dense breast tissue. Patients considering 3D mammography should check with their insurance provider regarding coverage.


Benefits of Digital Mammography

 

Unlike other parts of the body, the breast is composed mainly of soft tissue. With digital mammography, the radiologist reviews electronic images of the breast, using special high-resolution monitors. The radiologist can adjust the brightness, change contrast, and zoom in for close ups of specific areas. Being able to manipulate images is one of the main benefits of digital technology.

Another convenience of digital mammography over film-based systems is it can greatly reduce the need for retakes. This potentially saves additional time and reduces your exposure to x-ray.
