Nationally recognized breast imaging services

Our breast imaging services have achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs. We are recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.

We are also recognized by the gold standard for breast center accreditation, the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). This accreditation is granted to centers that commit to providing the best possible comprehensive care to patients with breast diseases.

3D mammography

We are dedicated to finding breast cancer at its earliest stage. 3D mammography is a proven screening exam that results in cancer detection improvement while decreasing patient call backs.

We can provide more detailed, accurate results with this advanced technology. Our tools enable radiologists to view the breast layer by layer, allowing earlier detection of small cancers that may be hidden in the surrounding tissue.

3D mammography is approved for all women who would otherwise be undergoing a standard mammogram. Multiple clinical studies show that it is valuable for all women, regardless of breast type or density. As part of routine women's care, it is recommended that women receive annual mammograms beginning at 40 years old. Women at high risk for breast cancer should begin screening mammograms at 30 years old or in accordance with their doctor's recommendation.

To schedule a 3D mammogram, call (615) 695-7229.

Benefits of screening for breast cancer

We partner with Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute to help fight breast cancer through advanced technology and patient-focused care. Regular screening for breast cancer can increase your chances of finding if you have cancer at an early stage, when treatment is more likely to be successful. Otherwise, a person with no symptoms may not find out they have breast cancer until after a routine screening mammogram.
