To help identify breast conditions and to screen for breast cancer, PeaceHealth offers mammograms, breast imaging technology and image-guided biopsy. These imaging technologies may help diagnose breast cancer in its early stages — often before symptoms appear. Mammograms are x-ray images of breast tissue. Doctors use x-rays to look for abnormal growths or to check for changes in the breast.
Advanced breast imaging can also help doctors more accurately diagnose the type of breast cancer, its stage or other breast conditions.
