Schedule a Mammogram
Mammography, a crucial breast screening tool, harnesses X-ray technology to generate vital breast images, known as mammograms.
In today's modern healthcare landscape, the gold standard for mammography is Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), also known as "tomo" or 3-dimensional (3D) mammography.
Expert radiologists, extensively trained in mammogram interpretation, meticulously scrutinize these images to identify any potential signs of breast cancer.
The Oklahoma Breast Center Breast Imaging Services offers 3D mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis. Three-dimensional mammography is a type of digital mammography in which X-ray machines are used to take pictures of thin slices of the breast from different angles and computer software is used to reconstruct an image.
3D mammography lets doctors better evaluate breast images, layer by layer, for greater accuracy. Greater accuracy means both better breast cancer detection and less of a chance a patient will need additional imaging/testing. 3D mammography is performed similar to traditional mammography.
- Age 20-plus: Perform monthly breast self-examinations. Become familiar with the normal look and feel of your breasts. If ANY change occurs, report it to your doctor.

- Age 40-plus: Have an annual mammogram.
