With a dedication to fighting breast cancer through early detection and timely treatments, the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Imaging Center is offering a special price for digital screening mammograms during October—breast cancer awareness month. Patients who are uninsured, have high deductibles, or whose insurance plans are not contracted by Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital can receive a routine screening mammogram for the special cash price of $160.
The best available tool for breast cancer detection continues to be the mammogram. Taken over time, mammograms provide a way to identify changes in breast tissue, such as the appearance of a tumor. The Sheila R. Veloz Breast Imaging Center, designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR), uses digital mammography rather than traditional analog mammography.
With its own entrance, home-like atmosphere, and friendly staff, the Breast Imaging Center also has the latest ultrasound technology, which complements mammography in cancer detection and facilitates minimally invasive, image-guided biopsies. Located on Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital’s campus, the Breast Imaging Center has performed more than 73,000 procedures and detected 680 breast cancers through mammograms and diagnostic exams.
Appointments can be scheduled Monday through Friday, including lunchtimes and into the evening, as well as some weekends, by calling (661)253-8822. The Breast Imaging Center is located at 23929 McBean Parkway, Suite 101, Valencia.
