Iredell Health System operates a self-requested digital and 3D mammography program at our Women's Health Center, which means patients who meet the American Cancer Society's recommendations do not have to have a prescription for screening. Call 704.878.4551 to make an appointment.
Bone density scanning is also offered at the Women's Health Center.
Mammograms are among the services in the Imaging Department on our Mooresville campus at 653 Bluefield Road. Call 704.360.6460.
Mobile 2D and 3D mammography services are available at the Iredell Physician Network offices in Taylorsville, 1668 NC Hwy 16 South. Call 704.878.7350 to schedule an appointment.
FCC Taylorsville also performs bone density scanning.
You will receive two bills for a standard screening mammogram—one from Iredell Health System and another from the radiologist. Please call the Women's Health Center for current prices.
The American Cancer Society recommendations
Women between 40 and 44 have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year.
Women 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
Women 55 and older can switch to a mammogram every other year, or they can choose to continue yearly mammograms. Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live at least 10 more years.
All women should understand what to expect when getting a mammogram for breast cancer screening – what the test can and cannot do.
Women who notice any changes in their breasts should see a physician right away.
