Digital Mammography

We offer a dedicated Mammography program, accredited by the FDA and the American College of Radiology.  As a Pink Ribbon facility, VCU-CMH offers digital mammography on the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ system, developed by Hologic, Inc., a worldwide leader in Women’s Health. The breast is a three-dimensional object composed of different structures located at different heights within the breast. These structures can overlap and cause confusion when viewed as a flat two-dimensional image. This confusion of overlapping of tissue is a leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. Using breast tomosynthesis technology, the Hologic system creates a 3-dimensional image of the breast structure, which enables radiologists to more clearly see through overlapping tissue to detect cancers, often at an earlier stage.

We also offer various options for breast biopsy and Bone Density Testing. 


Now Offering Self Requested Mammograms 

In order to enhance direct patient access to VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital’s screening mammography services; beginning April 1, 2016, patients can schedule their screening mammogram without a physician’s order.  Patients should call (434) 584-5205 and speak with one of VCU Health CMH’s Patient Access Representatives to schedule an exam. 

Callers should be prepared to provide information including their regular health care provider, when and where their last mammogram was performed and insurance information. It is also important for patients to inform VCU Health CMH of their regular health care provider so the hospital will know where to send the screening results. 

If a potential patient does not have a regular healthcare provider to send their results to, they can choose from our list of providers.  Patients currently experiencing problems or with a history of breast cancer will still require a physician’s order to schedule their diagnostic mammogram.  Our Mammography department is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and ready to provide the residents of southside Virginia and northern North Carolina with their breast imaging needs.
