Access to the most advanced screenings.
Here, you're not just a patient, you're our partner. Beginning at age 40, we encourage you to have a conversation with your doctor about routine breast screening when it should begin and what type of screening is best for you.
Our advanced diagnostic tests provide earlier detection of tumors and abnormalities — so that you can be one step ahead when it comes to your health. Our highly skilled team of experts is here to focus on what you need — every step of the way.
At Sharp, we utilize digital mammography to produce highly precise, rapid scans that can be displayed on a high-resolution computer monitor and stored digitally.
Tomosynthesis, or 3-D mammography, is offered at the Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion Imaging Center and at Grossmont Imaging, a partnership of X-Ray Medical Group and Sharp Grossmont Hospital. This screening allows doctors to detect breast cancer earlier by uncovering breast abnormalities unseen in traditional mammograms. This technology uses high-powered computing to generate a 3-D reconstruction of the breast, providing clearer, more accurate views of breast tissue.
High-risk monitoring is also available at Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion Imaging Center. When receiving a mammogram, you can learn if your lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is greater than 20 percent — the threshold at which the American Cancer Society recommends extra monitoring and other prevention strategies.
The process is simple. At the time of your mammogram, will answer a series of questions about your personal and family histories. Then a sophisticated computer program will calculate your unique breast cancer risk and send it to your doctor.
