Get Your Mammogram: Results Bring Peace of Mind

June 30, 2021

One in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. At the UP Health System – Bell Breast Center, you can get peace of mind by receiving same-day results from your mammogram.

A mammogram typically takes only twenty minutes to complete and can save you or your loved one’s life by detecting breast cancer as early as possible.

The UP Health System – Bell Breast Center is accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance.

In addition to the NAPBC accreditation, the UP Health System – Bell Breast Center also received the designation of Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, meaning accreditation has been received from the American College of Radiology (ACR) in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided biopsy.

And, most importantly, you can receive these quality services right here, close to home.

Schedule an appointment with your primary care provider to discuss your risk for breast cancer and to schedule a mammogram. If you need to find a primary care provider in your area, visit www.BellHospital.org and click on the Find a Doctor tab.
