Why breast imaging is important
When it comes to beating breast cancer, early detection is vital. Routine screening with a yearly mammogram starting at 40 years old increases the chance of survival. When breast cancer is caught early, women have more treatment options and better outcomes.
- Women 40 years old and older should have a mammogram and clinical breast exam every year.
- Women between 20 and 40 years old should have a clinical breast exam every three years.
- Women in their 20s should conduct monthly breast self-exams.
Breast cancer screening
Our Trident Health system facilities all offer 3D mammograms, which combine multiple breast X-rays to create a three-dimensional picture of the breast. This type of mammography can reduce the need for additional imaging services and can find tumors that regular mammograms cannot.
This year, more than 30,000 women will choose to have their mammogram at a Trident Health facility. To serve women throughout the Greater Charleston are, mammograms are available at the following locations:
- Trident Breast Care Center at Trident Medical Center
- Summerville Medical Center
- Moncks Corner Medical Center
We offer easy online mammogram scheduling for your convenience.
