Located on the third floor of the Cancer Center, the program offers comprehensive, personalized breast health services from routine screenings to complex diagnostic procedures and treatment evaluations by using the latest technology the field has to offer, including breast tomosynthesis and 3D mammography.

Special Screening Program for People at High Risk for Breast Cancer

Our High Risk Breast Cancer Screening Program includes genetic counseling services to help those who are high risk understand their risk factors and determine what actions they can take to protect themselves and their families.

You may be at an elevated risk for breast cancer based on a combination of personal, lifestyle or genetic risk factors. The American Cancer Society defines a woman as “high risk” for breast cancer if her lifetime risk of developing the disease is 20 percent or higher.

For more information about the High Risk Breast Cancer Screening Program or to make an appointment, call 908-243-8660.

Bone Scans

Breast cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and hormonal therapy with aromatase inhibitors, can impact your bone health. Before you start your treatment, your doctor may recommend a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan for a baseline assessment of your bone density. This scan may be repeated after your treatment to determine if you have had any bone loss.

It is also recommended that women over age 65 have a bone density scan to screen for osteoporosis.

Screening exams, such as bone density testing, are covered by Medicare and most major insurance plans.
