What is a mammogram and what type of procedure is used?
A mammogram is a series of X-ray images of breast tissue. It is a valuable screening that can detect breast cancer early, before a suspicious lump can be felt. Memorial Hospital uses digital mammography. The mammography services at Memorial Hospital are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Mammography services are provided by Memorial Hospital’s Imaging and Radiology Department, 511 NE 10th Street, in Abilene.
How do I schedule an appointment?
