Also known as:
Mammogram, digital mammography
A mammogram is an X-ray test of the breasts (mammary glands) used to screen for breast problems, such as a lump, and whether a lump is fluid-filled (a cyst) or a solid mass.
Providence mammography departments use state-of-the-art mammography units. In addition, our radiologists use advanced R2 ImageChecker technology to give an immediate, computerized, second reading of each mammogram.

Providence offers care for women who cannot afford it through the Oregon Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP). BCCP helps low-income, uninsured and medically underserved women gain access to lifesaving screening programs for early detection of breast and cervical cancers. Each year, approximately 7,000 eligible individuals receive screening services.
Funding for this program is provided by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Oregon and SW Washington Affiliate and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For more information and eligibility requirements, please call the BCCP Toll-Free HOTLINE: 877-255-7070.
In addition, Providence Medford Medical Center offers financial support for the cost of mammograms for women who qualify for assistance through The Sister Therese Kohles Fund. Please ask the scheduler for information when making your appointment.
