Mammography and breast imaging tests

Most breast problems are not cancerous. A clinical exam by a breast health practitioner—and imaging services, when necessary—can help clarify the nature of your problem and bring you peace of mind. At Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, you are in the care of health professionals with a particular interest and expertise in your breast concerns. 

Our comprehensive breast imaging and mammography centers are recognized as Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence by the American College of Radiology. We use the latest 3D digital screening mammography to detect tumors, cysts, and other subtle changes in breast tissue that may be too small to detect by touch.
