Breast Care at River Falls Area Hospital

After successful treatment for breast cancer, Kristen McGregor-Linehan is back to being the biggest cheerleader on the soccer field for her son Mason and daughter Ellie.

Because early detection is the best protection against breast cancer, River Falls Area Hospital offers comprehensive breast care services, including digital mammography.

Digital mammograms for breast cancer detection

A digital mammogram is like traditional film screen mammogram. Both use X-rays to generate images of the breast.

However, instead of using film to capture and record the image, a digital mammogram uses a special detector to capture and convert X-ray energy into a digital image, making the images immediately available to the radiologist for diagnosis.

The benefit to patients is there is no waiting for film to be developed, reducing the time patients spend at River Falls Area Hospital, as well as reducing the need for repeat exams due to under or over exposure.

Our medical imaging/radiology department is licensed and/or certified by the state of Wisconsin and by the American College of Radiology.

Schedule your mammogram. River Falls Area Hospital offers a full range of services including digital mammograms, breast biopsies and digital MRIs of the breast, if needed. The cost of mammograms is fully covered by health insurance. Make your appointment today by calling
