Getting timely mammograms is important. These noninvasive screening tests can detect cancer even before a lump can be felt. Finding breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages is key to a successful outcome.
When it comes time for your next breast cancer screening, you don't have to travel far from home. Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC) offers high-quality screening mammograms without a referral. And we take all insurance plans, so you don't have to worry about coverage.
Here are some other reasons to choose MMMC for your next mammogram.
State-of-the-art mammogram screening technology
MMMC's Imaging Department has invested in the most advanced imaging equipment on Maui, including the GE Selenia Dimensions 2D/3D Digital Mammography System which provides some of the highest quality images available in Hawaii. Medical imaging equipment this sophisticated is usually available only at academic medical centers on the mainland.
This newer technology offers:
- High-resolution 3D breast images. At the same time, it uses a lower radiation dose.
- Increased comfort during your exam. Our equipment's ergonomic flex paddle capability makes the test as pleasant as possible.
Expertise and caring
Technology isn't the only reason our mammogram services stand out. Our highly trained and experienced imaging team is led by a radiologist with many years of experience.
MMMC also partners with Renaissance Imaging Medical Associates. This arrangement means the radiologist who reads your mammogram report will have access to specialists on the mainland, if additional expertise is needed to interpret the findings.
Quality and convenience under one roof
After your mammogram, the images will be viewed within 24 hours or less. So if the team finds that more images are needed to provide an accurate picture of your breast health, those images can be taken promptly.
If additional tests—such as ultrasound, a biopsy or another diagnostic mammogram—are needed, they can be done right here at MMMC.
Ease of access
We know you're busy. That is why we make a wide range of appointment times available for you.
We also offer complimentary valet parking so you can get in and out of your appointment and back to your day as quick and easy as possible.
