Mammography Cascade Medical

Mammography

A mammogram is the preferred diagnostic test to find breast cancer in its early stages. It is performed by using a low-dose X-ray to scan the breasts for any abnormalities or changes in the breast tissue.

For women ages 50 to 74, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends a mammography screening once every two years. For younger and older women, the decision is a personal one. Talk to your doctor about when mammography screenings are right for you.

When scheduling your mammogram, please let the scheduler know of the following:  

  • If you have had a prior mammogram, we will need to know when and where they are located.
  • If you have special needs (wheelchair/ walker needs, interpreter services, etc). We want to ensure that we have the appropriate staff available to assist you.
  • If you are pregnant or nursing
  • If you have breast implants
  • Any recent breast surgeries or biopsies

For best results, schedule your mammogram within the first 10 days of your menstrual cycle.

 

CT Imaging, Lung Cancer Screening

CT Imaging, Lung Cancer Screening

CT imaging is an advanced test used to produce multiple images of the inside of the body, such as internal organs, bone, soft tissue and blood vessels. The scans are painless and usually take only a few minutes. Certain CT exams require a special dye, called contrast, to highlight specific areas inside of the body.

A low dose CT scan can detect lung cancer in its earliest stages, when the disease is easiest to treat, with about 80 percent less radiation than a conventional CT. Most people don’t feel the symptoms of lung cancer until the disease is already advanced.

Because Cascade Medical is ACR-accredited, Medicare and all private insurance plans will cover the full cost of an annual low dose CT scan for people considered “high risk”:

  • Ages 55-77lung cancer screening center logo
  • A smoker or former smoker who quit within the past 15 years
  • A history of smoking the equivalent of a pack of day for 30 years
  • Has a written order from a physician or qualified practitioner
