The Hunterdon Breast Surgery Center works very closely with Hunterdon Women’s Imaging Center. We conveniently share the same building on Route 31 in Flemington, New Jersey. In addition, Hunterdon Advanced Imaging Center, located in the Bridgewater Medical Office Building is now open and offers 3D mammography.
Hunterdon Healthcare recommends that women begin breast cancer screening at age 40. If there is a history of breast cancer in your immediate family (such as a mother, aunt, or sister), you may be considered high risk. Women at high risk – because of family history, a breast condition, or another reason – need to begin screening earlier and/or more often. Please discuss with your healthcare provider.
Please discuss with your breast surgeon or healthcare provider for further information and screening recommendations.
3-D Digital Mammography Services
A mammogram is a low-dose X-ray of the breast. It can detect a breast lump nearly two years before it can be felt. Digital mammography is the most advanced technology to date for detecting breast cancer. The digital mammography procedure is essentially the same as standard film mammography but uses a computer and digital image instead of film. Digital mammograms allow the image to be acquired and displayed immediately, reducing the time that the patient must remain still. This expedited process provides the patient with a more convenient and comfortable mammogram. In addition, a digital image can be enhanced and altered to be seen more clearly and to make a more accurate diagnosis. This image manipulation eliminates the need for a woman to repeat her mammogram if the first image is deemed unusable.
Screening mammograms evaluate breast health in women with no symptoms and are used for those who seek routine breast evaluation. Diagnostic mammograms are used to diagnose breast disease in women with symptoms of a breast problem: dimpling, or a change in the texture of the skin of the breast, a lump, or discharge from the nipple.
