At Riverton Hospital, we offer screening mammograms ONLY. For more advanced breast imaging, you'll be referred to the Breast Care Center at Intermountain Medical Center. We perform mammograms Tuesdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
We are excited to announce that we have new technology on our campus. Tomography, a 3-D mammogram system is the newest technology for mammography patients. It takes the same four views that a regular mammogram does, the key difference is that it takes pictures in slices through the breast and then the computer reconstructs them into a 3-D view for the radiologist to study.
Having a mammogram is the best defense against breast cancer, no matter which exam you have. If you are 40 or older, schedule your mammogram today!
- It takes about four seconds longer than the standard mammography. (It is the same principle as a CT exam).
- It is especially good for women with dense breast tissue.
- It can find invasive cancers earlier than traditional mammography.
*Not all insurance companies pay for Tomography yet. Medicare does and so does Select Health. Otherwise, the patient is responsible for paying the extra amount.
