Breast Health Services

Looking and feeling good don't just happen—they require commitment to making your health a top priority. When it comes to breast health, that means doing regular self-examinations and scheduling annual mammograms.

At Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), we work hard to be your partner in health. That’s why we offer mammograms performed by certified technologists using advanced technology for both 2-D and 3-D mammography. A 2-D mammogram is one of the best diagnostic tools for catching breast cancer early, while 3-D mammography gives patients with dense breast tissue additional peace of mind.

Screening mammograms are performed at nine convenient locations. Results are reviewed and compared against previous screening images and the results are shared with you.

If you have a concern about your breast health, you can schedule diagnostic breast imaging studies at one of our three Breast Health Services locations. A certified breast care nurse (CBCN) will help determine if a diagnostic mammogram or ultrasound of the breast is the best choice for you. Results are available immediately. Should you require a breast biopsy, our dedicated team will provide the support, education and prompt testing you need for a stereotactic or ultrasound-guided biopsy.

Schedule your appointment at one of our Centers of Excellence today. Learn more about our innovative services.

Screening versus diagnostic mammograms

An annual screening mammogram looks for suspicious changes in your breast tissue. Most screening mammograms include two X-ray images of each breast (top-down and side-view). The results are read by a radiologist and available within 24-48 hours.

You may schedule a screening mammogram directly on MyLVHN provided you are age 40+ and have not had a mammogram in the last 365 days. If you are younger than 40, a prescription from your doctor or health care provider is required.

To schedule your screening mammogram on MyLVHN, log in to your MyLVHN account, select the Schedule an Appointment icon and then click the Screening Mammogram button. MyLVHN app users should select the Appointments icon and then press Screening Mammogram.

If a problem is suspected, your physician may order a diagnostic mammogram to double check your screening results. A diagnostic mammogram will take a second set of images (top-down and side-view) and additional images as requested by your radiologist. An ultrasound also may be ordered to determine if the breast tissue is solid or has other characteristics. Results are available immediately.
