While many places offer mammograms, Lancaster General Health/Penn Medicine gives you both the expertise and convenience you deserve. Schedule a same or next-day appointment and have your mammogram read by a board-certified radiologist who specializes in breast imaging. And, with MyLGHealth, some results may be viewed online in just a few hours.
Lancaster General Health also offers three-dimensional (3D) mammography, the latest advancement in breast cancer detection. 3D/Tomosynthesis technology allows doctors to see masses and distortion associated with cancers and precancerous cells more clearly. Images of the breast are captured from multiple angles, in thin slices that can be examined individually, or combined to create a 3D image of your breast.
A radiologist — a physician who specializes in medical imaging — can then see detail that might be hidden or difficult to detect in a 2D image alone.
Understanding 3D mammography and breast cancer screening

Maybe it's happened to you. Your screening mammogram shows something suspicious. It might not be breast cancer, but because it isn't clear, you're called back for additional view, or perhaps and ultrasound, MRI or biopsy.
Do you know if you have dense breasts?

Every woman should know the answer to that question because dense breasts can be a risk factor for cancer—and you may need imaging tests beyond a mammogram to detect any tumors.
