The Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center offers timely access to state-of-the-art screening and diagnostic, clinical, and care support services by a multi-disciplinary team of providers. Services are provided in a comforting environment where patients get the results they need quickly and compassionately.

Talk to your primary care provider about scheduling a mammogram. This simple test can save lives.

Digital mammograms are performed with advanced medical equipment and a board-certified radiologist interprets each exam. A care support nurse is available to personally guide each patient through the screening, diagnosis, and if necessary, the treatment process.

We offer 3D mammography, the latest in breast cancer screening. The benefits include:

  • Improved cancer detection rates
  • A decrease in call-backs for more images
  • The same or slightly lower x-ray dose than a regular digital mammogram
  • Covered by most insurances, including Medicare

You may never need more than a mammogram from us. But should you ever have an abnormal screening, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you are in the right place with the right people—a compassionate team of professionals who will collaborate on the most effective diagnostic procedures and treatment for you.

Our Center offers stereotactic needle biopsy: a low-radiation, outpatient procedure that is an important new tool in the fight against breast cancer. It is used to determine if breast abnormalities found on a mammogram are cancerous or benign. Compared to surgery, stereotactic needle biopsy is quicker and less painful, has fewer complications and minimal recovery time, and only requires local anesthesia. Since most women with an abnormal mammogram do not have breast cancer, stereotactic needle biopsy can spare you the discomfort and scarring associated with a surgical biopsy.

We are a Level III: Certified Quality Breast Center, the highest certification from the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers Program.™ Our performance is measured by key indicators such as:

  • Timeliness of care from screening mammograms to diagnostic mammograms
  • Surgical timeliness of care from time between needle biopsy and initial breast surgery
  • Pathology report completeness

It’s important to talk to a health care provider about any changes to your breasts.
