Screening Mammography

Talk to Your Doctor About Mammograms

A mammogram is a screening test that can identify changes in the breast that may be early signs of cancer, but are too small or subtle to be felt. St. Luke’s follows the American Cancer Society’s recommendation that every woman age 40 and older have an annual mammogram. Some women are at higher risk for breast cancer and should begin screening earlier. The most important thing is that you talk to your doctor about the screening timeline that’s best for you.

Screening Mammography Locations

You’ll find a highly skilled team and a warm, caring atmosphere at each of our many conveniently located screening mammography sites across the region. Full-field digital mammography is available at all locations. Services are:

  • Accredited by the American College of Radiology and provided by experienced technologists certified in mammography by the American Registry of Registered Technologists.
  • Provided by registered nurses specially trained in performing clinical breast exams and providing patient self-exam information. (Note: clinical breast exams are not included during mammography appointments at our Twin Falls location.)

Request an appointment online for one of the following Treasure Valley locations: Boise downtown (Washington Street), Boise by the mall (Rifleman), Eagle, Elmore, Fruitland, Meadow Lake (Meridian), or Nampa.
