Mammogram

The first step in good breast health is the ability to make an accurate diagnosis, and that requires cutting-edge imaging equipment so we can see exactly what’s going on inside your body.

Our Breast Health Center is located right next door to our imaging department, so you can get mammograms and any other scans you need all in one location. And you know you’re getting the best diagnostic imaging possible because our imaging department has been designated as a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.

3D Mammography

Women who undergo routine mammograms at Hilton Head Regional Healthcare's Breast Health Center located at the Bluffton Medical Campus now have the latest diagnostic technology available to them, tomosynthesis, or 3D imaging mammography.  The new screening and diagnostic tool, which is designed for early breast cancer detection, can be done in conjunction with a traditional 2D Mammogram.

Mammograms are an important tool in the fight against breast cancer, which is the most common form of cancer among American women, except for skin cancer. Women ages 40 and over can schedule their own screening mammogram at the Women’s Imaging Center without a referral from their primary care physician.

In addition we offer:

  • Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
  • Breast Ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy)
  • Breast MRI
  • All mammography uses digital technology with Computer-aided detection (CAD).
  • Hilton Head Hospital uses the MammoPad breast cushion designed to help make mammograms more comfortable for women. The soft, foam cushion is placed on the mammography machine to provide a warm cushion for the breast during compression.

Our Team
Our team includes a Radiologist fellowship trained in breast imaging along with Registered Mammography Technologists with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT).  Our Breast Navigator is specially trained to coordinate the clinical, educational and supportive needs of our patients who are either facing a possible breast cancer diagnosis or newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
