What is Mammography?

Choose Your Location

COVID-19 Vaccine and Screening Mammography

All vaccinations, including COVID-19 vaccines, can briefly make lymph nodes swell. This is normal but if you have had a mammogram, it can make your results seem abnormal. You would then get called back for extra testing.

We therefore recommend you get your yearly screening mammogram before you get your COVID-19 vaccine. Or: You can wait 4-6 weeks after your second dose until your lymph nodes return to normal size.

For questions or to schedule an appointment, please call 503-413-7800 (Oregon) or 360-487-1800 (Washington).

About 3-D Mammography
3D mammography scans being reviewed by legacy doctor
A 3-D mammogram is the best tool for early breast cancer detection. The exam experience is the same whether it’s 2-D or 3-D screening. But the 3-D results allow doctors to see tumors that may have otherwise been hidden, and also reduce false alarms.
About Breast Density

Do you know that the density of breast tissue impacts cancer risk? 
Very dense breast tissue can hide small tumors right where we want to find them. That’s why we offer 3-D mammography - it finds more cancers. Learn about breast density and the steps you can take to protect yourself.
