About Mercy


Mammograms are used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer in women experiencing no symptoms, and to detect and diagnose breast disease in women experiencing symptoms such as a lump, pain or nipple discharge.


American College of Radiology Stereotactic Breast Biopsy Accreditation Seal

3D mammography is available at all five of our mammography locations, providing a faster, accurate image. This advanced type of digital mammography uses high-powered computing to convert the digital images into a three-dimensional image of the breast allowing radiologists to see breast tissue in greater detail.

Mercy Mammography at Mercy Central Campus and Mercy West have earned the American College of Radiology (ACR) certification for stereotactic breast biopsies.

Our patients' comfort is important. That's why Mercy uses Bella Blankets, a soft foam pad that provides a more comfortable mammogram.

Pink Ribbon Facility sealMercy has been recognized as a Pink Ribbon Facility™ by Hologic®–the leading manufacturer and supplier of diagnostic, surgical and medical imaging equipment–for excellence in breast health and use of advanced digital mammography technology.
