IT MATTERS WHERE YOU GO

Siteman Mammograms Save Lives

Why does it matter where you go?  Because early detection is the single greatest factor in improving treatment and outcomes in breast cancer. Siteman Cancer Center’s unique “specialists at every step” approach leads to earlier detection.

You probably already know that women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every year, but many women still do not. Why not? Because they are busy working, taking care of the household, kids, husband, parents, pets, etc. We understand you take care of everyone else first, and there is never enough time to take care of yourself. But this is too important to put off any longer, so we want to give you another good reason to schedule your Siteman mammogram now and take care of yourself.

Breast technologists at Siteman Cancer Center are solely dedicated to breast care services.
      • The Breast Health Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital is now an all-tomosynthesis site. Tomosynthesis or 3-D mammography, obtains images of the breast at multiple angles, reducing the potential or patient call-backs to obtain additional imaging scans.
