The Breast Center is more than just a place to get your mammogram. It is an integral part of our full service women's health care at Lafayette General, and provides:
high quality, digital mammograms*
non-surgical, minimally invasive stereotactic breast biopsies
bone density scans
breast MRI at neighboring Lafayette General Imaging
But what really sets the Breast Center apart are the highly skilled and compassionate radiologic technologists. Christy and Kim are registered technologists and licensed by the State in mammography, with over 16 years experience each. Michelle, our ultrasound technologist, is also registered and has treated patients at LGMC for 19 years. Their sensitivity, combined with a comfortable, private atmosphere, make a trip to the Breast Center much less intimidating.
A physician's order is required for mammograms; call the scheduling phone number above to make an appointment.
*The Selenia full field digital mammography suite at the Breast Center captures images with exceptional clarity and depth. A National Cancer Institute Study showed that digital mammography was significantly better than film mammography in screening women, particularly those under age 50 and those of any age with very dense breasts.
