Our mammography department provides screening mammograms of the breast to detect and diagnose breast disease quickly, expertly, and close to home. Wait times are typically short.
Our new computed tomography machine provides cross-sectional 3D images to help our specialists find invasive cancers earlier than traditional mammography.
- 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.
We also offer Dexa (bone density) screenings in our mammography department.
To schedule a mammogram or screening, call Riverton Hospital's mammography department. For more advanced breast imaging, you'll be referred to the Breast Care Center at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.
