Mammograms are the best tool for early breast cancer detection and treatment. Talk to your doctor about when you should start regular mammogram screenings. Your preventive care plan depends on your age, risk factors and personal preferences.
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast designed to help find tumors that may be too small to feel.
A screening mammogram is typically ordered by a health care provider for patients as a preventative diagnostic tool.
To schedule a screening mammogram (for women who have no signs or symptoms of breast disease), call our Women’s Imaging Center at 207-744-6079.
In about 10% of screening mammograms completed, changes in the breast are found that call for additional testing. Further study may include a diagnostic mammogram. A diagnostic mammogram is testing completed when a radiologist asks for added imaging to be done with x-ray or ultrasound, or both.
A request for you to return for more imaging does not mean that you have cancer! For screening and diagnostic mammograms, a radiologist will review and a report of the radiologist's findings or recommendations will be sent to your health care provider. Patients will also receive a letter informing you of the results.

Osteoporosis is a silent disease causing bones to thin, weaken, and fracture. The Women's Imaging Center at Stephens Memorial Hospital is pleased to have two certified technologists on staff.
Dexa testing for bone density is quick, painless and available two days a week at the Women's Imaging Center. Scans measure hip bones and spine for changes in density or architecture. This allows early bone loss to be detected and for treatment to take place. We can then monitor the effectiveness of these measures with future scans.
