At CHI St. Gabriel we offer state of the art 3d mammography services to help screen women for signs of breast cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends that women begin breast cancer screening at age 40 and have repeat mammograms every year. Women with a mother or sister who had breast cancer should consider yearly mammograms 10 years earlier than the age at which their youngest family member was diagnosed.
How to Schedule
Patients should call (320) 631-5000 to schedule their appointment. A referral from your primary care provider is needed to schedule.
How to Prepare for Your Appointment
1. Please do not wear underarm deodorant, lotions or powder on the breast or underarm area.
