Our Breast Screening Program at the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center provides comprehensive, individualized breast cancer screening services. You can receive a mammogram, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, image-guided biopsy, or bone-density assessment (also known as bone densitometry) in our comfortable and supportive environment. Using state-of-the-art digital equipment, our technologists strive to minimize your discomfort while efficiently achieving the views needed for an accurate reading.
To schedule breast imaging services or a bone-density assessment, please call 646-227-3700. Appointments are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. We also offer screening mammography appointments on the third Saturday of each month from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.
All breast cancer screening mammograms are read independently by two or more radiologists who specialize in breast imaging. With this double-reading approach, we can detect the highest number of breast cancers at the earliest stage possible. Our radiologists may also provide a recommendation for additional screening or perform an image-guided biopsy to confirm a diagnosis.
Memorial Sloan Kettering’s breast cancer screening guidelines recommend that most women get a mammogram every year beginning at age 40, with annual mammography beginning earlier for women at a high risk for breast cancer.
