Mammography Services

As a leading provider of women's care and women's imaging, Sharp offers mammography services throughout San Diego County. In addition to state-of-the-art technology and equipment, we ensure a gentle, supportive environment for your annual screening.

Sharp HealthCare strongly supports The American Cancer Society recommendation that women have a mammogram every year, starting at age 40. These lifesaving screenings can often detect a lump up to two years before it can be felt. And the earlier the detection, the better the outcome.

Why Choose Sharp for Mammography Services?

  • Advanced diagnostic tests that can provide earlier detection of tumors and abnormalities, leading to better outcomes
  • Expert staff dedicated to making your experience comfortable

Sharp HealthCare's mammography services range from annual screenings to complex diagnostic procedures, such as stereotactic breast biopsy, ultrasound-guided breast core biopsy and breast MRI.

Digital Mammography
This diagnostic technology provides highly precise, rapid scans for the radiologist. Digital mammography uses computer and specially designed digital detectors to produce an image that can be displayed on a high-resolution computer monitor, and transmitted and stored just like computer files.  

Tomosynthesis (3-D Mammography)
Offered at the Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion Imaging Center, 3-D mammography is a diagnostic tool to uncover breast abnormalities unseen in traditional mammograms, which allows doctors to detect breast cancer earlier. It uses high-powered computing to generate a 3-D reconstruction of the breast, providing clearer, more accurate views of breast tissue.
