When you visit our Breast HealthCare Center at Missouri Baptist, you'll find a warm and inviting place.
Here, you’ll experience a level of comfort not usually associated with the most advanced breast imaging technologies. That’s because we understand the anxieties associated with breast screening and are here to treat both you and your health.
You will be treated by some of the region’s most experienced physicians, nurses and technologists -- specially-trained in breast health. They are committed to providing all the necessary tools to maintain good breast health and to stop breast cancer before it has a chance to affect our patients' lives.
We have four digital imaging suites, each equipped with the most advanced imaging technology available. Our goal is to provide digital screening mammograms with virtually no wait times.
Every mammogram is reviewed by our computer-aided detection system and a Board Certified Radiologist, dedicated to mammography.
Because of the personal care and convenience we provide, our patients return year after year and tell others about the Breast HealthCare Center.
Add 3D to Your Mammogram
You now can choose to add 3D to your mammography screening. Our Breast HealthCare Center is one of only a few hospitals in Missouri to offer 3D mammography. 3D technology was approved by the FDA in 2011 and published studies show that breast cancers are often better seen in 3D because of improved resolution and visualization.
With 3D, you can benefit in so many ways:
- As we know, finding cancers in the earliest stages increases chances of surviving it. The 3D technology helps our doctors find smaller cancers sooner.
- 3D is especially important for dense breast tissue, because it allows doctors to examine breast tissue one layer at a time, versus in 2D where overlapping tissue can make it hard to see signs of early cancer.
- It’s also proven to reduce call-back visits for additional testing when results have been unclear, because with 3D doctors have the ability to better see the fine details.
Why is there a $20 fee for 3D?
Currently, there is no supplemental reimbursement for 3D screening from Medicare or insurance plans, even though it requires doctors more time to review your exam. Therefore, we offer this optional 3D test for an additional fee of only $20 (payable today at your screening). Your screening mammogram will be billed to Medicare or your insurance as usual.
Does it take more time?
No, the 3D exam is similar to a traditional mammogram and should take approximately the same length of time.
