The Starr Regional Breast Center opened in February of 2009, housing all of the imaging services for women under one roof, including digital mammography.
The Senographe Essential Full-field digital mammography system offers superior imagery for a more accurate diagnosis. The actual exam is more comfortable and much faster for the patient with results immediately available to the radiologists for diagnosis.
In addition to digital mammography, the Starr Regional Breast Center offers breast ultrasound, bone density tests and stereotactic and ultrasound core biopsies.
Did you know that one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime? That’s why it’s important to begin annual mammogram screenings at age 40. Regular mammograms are essential to early detection and the fight against breast cancer. In fact, with early detection, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 100 percent. At Starr Regional Medical Center, your breast health is important to us. Our staff provide compassionate care in a comfortable and welcoming environment to help you stay on top of your health and give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing and being prepared.
