A digital mammogram is an x-ray exam of the breast captured in digital format. Hamilton General Hospital performs screening mammograms which are used to detect and evaluate breast changes. Annual screening mammograms can detect cancer when it is too small to be felt by a woman or her doctor. Early detection greatly improves a woman’s chance for successful treatment.
Hamilton General Hospital is an FDA certified mammogram facility.
Most major health insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, have begun to cover the entire cost of an annual mammogram as a part of women’s wellness for women over 40. We are also partnered with Moncrief Cancer Institute who provide mammography services for non-insured and under-insured patients.
