Mammography is an important part of a breast health plan – it saves lives.
Every woman is at risk for breast cancer and her risk increases with age. According to the American Cancer Society, women with no symptoms of breast cancer should have a screening mammogram every year starting at age 40. Women with a lump or other symptoms of breast cancer should see a physician immediately.
Spartanburg Regional performs mammograms at the Regional Outpatient Center, The Woman’s Clinic and the Village at Pelham in Greer. Your mammogram will be read by two board-certified radiologists. A board-certified radiologist is a physician who has special training in interpreting mammograms and other radiological test results and has passed tests on skills specific to these areas.
A patient must bring a physician’s order with them the day of the appointment. This ensures the results are forwarded to the proper doctor once the radiologist has read the mammogram.
Appointments are made by calling 864-560-7777.
Spartanburg Regional is certified as a Softer Mammogram Provider®. That means we provide a soft foam cushion, called MammoPad®, for each woman's personal use during every screening mammogram.
The MammoPad breast cushion was designed for women by a female breast surgeon. It is FDA-cleared, does not impair image quality, and makes it easier for you to be relaxed, warm and comfortable during your exam. That helps our skilled mammography technicians achieve the best possible mammogram.
