One in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection is the best way to protect against breast cancer.
That’s why at 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.
Transforming the Mammography Patient Experience:
Introducing the SmartCurve™ Breast Stabilization System
The SmartCurve™ system is available on both the Hologic 3D and 2D mammography systems used by HSHS St Anthony’s Mammography Services.
Clinically Proven to Deliver a More Comfortable Mammogram Compared to Standard Compression
With pain being the number one complaint during mammograms, this fear of pain prevents many women from making regular breast imaging appointments a priority. By avoiding scheduling a mammogram, this puts women at risk of cancer being missed, or diagnosed at a more advanced stage.
With improved comfort, the SmartCurve™ system was designed to address this challenge and provide a better experience for women during their mammograms.

Mammograms Save Lives
I never missed a mammogram, and that’s why I’m enjoying these moments today. When a cyst grew into a cancer, my doctors at HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital in Effingham quickly diagnosed the cancer and provided me with treatment options. Because of early detection and dedicated doctors, I beat cancer!
My first mammogram changed my life. At 40 years young, I calmly went in for my first mammogram. Eight years later, I am a stage 3 breast cancer survivor, thanks to early detection. Because of my mammogram, I get to have an amazing moment with my son at his high school graduation.
You never know when a moment like this will come along, and I’m going to make sure that I’m there for as many of them as possible. As life moves on, I'll continue to perform self-breast exams regularly and never miss a mammogram. I know that taking a minute for me means that I’ve got a million more to give to her.
My daughter deserves moments like this. That’s why I’m getting my first mammogram this year. In order to protect her, I have to protect myself. Having expert doctors and innovative technology close to home will allow me to be sure that I am always in the picture.
She wants to be just like me. That means everything to me, so I’m going to set the example for her when it comes to taking care of her body. If you are over 40, it’s never too soon for your first mammogram. Moments like these won’t last forever, but I can be there for them much longer through early breast cancer screenings and mammograms.
The Technology of Prehab
One of the best ways to limit cancer treatment issues is to get ahead of them. Started upon diagnosis, pretreatment rehabilitation helps you be as strong and prepared as possible for treatment. It may include exercises to improve strength and endurance or strategies to help you decrease stress.
Care Beyond Care
No matter what type of cancer you face, it affects not just your body, but who you are as a person, and the lives of the people closest to you. We are here to help.
Nearly everyone dealing with cancer will, at some point, feel run down, unable to muster the energy to do the day’s most simple tasks, and maybe in need of someone to lean on.
