For patients with no abnormal breast symptoms, a screening mammogram offers the best opportunity for early detection of breast cancer. The procedure takes just a few minutes and most
screening mammograms do not require a physician order. Once a baseline is established, future mammograms are compared to detect changes through the aging process. Screening mammography services are available at all Jacqueline M. Wilentz Breast Centers and all mammograms are interpreted by the centers'
team of dedicated breast imagers.
While routine mammography screenings are offered to patients without symptoms, diagnostic mammograms are tailored to patients with symptoms of benign breast disease or breast cancer, or who are at high risk for breast cancer. Diagnostic mammography services are only available at The Jacqueline M. Wilentz Comprehensive Breast Center at Monmouth Medical Center. The Breast Center's board–certified breast imagers specialize in the technical aspects involved in diagnosing breast problems. They are joined by a staff of
highly trained, licensed mammography technologists and nurses — all of whom are sensitive to the needs and concerns of every patient.
