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.
MSK’s expert breast imaging radiologists use tomosynthesis, also called 3D mammography, for all breast cancer screening exams. This advanced technology lets us find 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.
