Mammography

Mammography uses low-dose x-ray technology to detect the presence of breast tumors and distinguish between cancerous and non-cancerous growths. It is commonly recognized as an essential early intervention and diagnostic tool for women. However, it is also used for men with certain symptoms. Annual mammograms are recommended for all women over the age of 40 for breast cancer prevention and early intervention.

Specializing in breast cancer detection and treatment, the Mountainside Medical Center Women's Imaging Center provides a full spectrum of services for prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of breast disease. At Mountainside Medical Center's Women's Imaging Center, our commitment is to provide the most advanced diagnostic equipment and medical staff needed to accurately interpret -- and act on -- the results. This combination of technology, unsurpassed expertise and preventative techniques allows us to screen for potential problems faster, more accurately and more comfortably.

We are able to do this because we've assembled an award-winning, multidisciplinary practice – a team-oriented approach involving surgeons, radiologists, medical oncologists, radiotherapists, wellness experts, nutritionists and others. Our compassionate and supportive setting assures maximum benefit from our Imaging Center's clinical and surgical expertise.
