Mammography

St. Luke's Mammography Department is able to screen women for signs of breast cancer and can evaluate those who have symptoms of a breast disease. A mammogram is a safe, effective, low-dose X-ray procedure used to evaluate breast tissue. A screening mammogram can detect extremely small breast cancers that are too small to discover through breast self-examination or even through clinical breast examination. Diagnostic mammograms take additional X-rays for further study and are prescribed by a physician.

Recently, St. Luke's transitioned its breast imaging services to all digital mammography and the response has been exceptional. Because of the increased demand, we are announcing a change to our scheduling procedure that changes the way we have provided services in the past.

We will continue to offer routine screening mammograms on a walk-in basis between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Screening mammograms are also available by appointment during regular hours, and from 8 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 5:30 p.m. Call 314-205-6267 to make an appointment or request an appointment online.

Effective January 1, 2009 patients will need to schedule an appointment for all diagnostic mammograms.

This change in scheduling will provide patients with shorter waiting times during our peak periods. Please note, we will still make every effort to accommodate immediate imaging for patients with acute issues (i.e. lumps). Please call for earliest availability when this situation arises. Emergent cases will be prioritized on a case-to-case basis.
