Women’s Wellness Center


Early detection is the best way to protect against breast cancer.  That’s why HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital we are transforming breast cancer screening and detection with the latest technology in 3D Mammography and a focus on your comfort. Our goal is to make breast health as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Instead of reviewing the breast tissue in a single, flat image, this tool folds together a series of images to create a 3D view, allowing doctors to see the tiniest details and find cancer in its earliest stages.

Mammogram Screening Guidelines:

It is recommended that women age 40 and older have a screening mammogram every year. Screening mammography offers the best chance of finding breast cancer early. Finding breast cancer early means more treatment options and a better chance for a cure.

Recommendation guidelines may change depending on personal and family risk factors which should be discussed with your medical provider.

There are two convenient mammography locations to serve you with the same team, same technology, same great service!
