The Wellspring Breast Center offers the following services:
Mammography is the most basic breast care need for prevention and early detection, especially in women over 40. The American Cancer Society recommends mammograms once a year, starting at 40, to assure optimal breast health. Wellspring provides yearly screening and diagnostic examinations. Our staff is specifically trained and certified in breast imaging.
This test, using sound waves instead of x-rays, is sometimes performed to acquire additional information for a diagnosis.
Using either ultrasound or stereotactic guidance, this is a simple, non-operative alternative to sample abnormalities found on breast imaging.
