Breast Health & Imaging

Dartmouth-Hitchcock breast imaging specialists work in concert with care providers from other clinical disciplines to provide an integrated approach to all aspects of breast health. Breast health and imaging services are offered in Concord, Keene, Lebanon, Manchester and Nashua.

Breast Cancer Screening: Mammography

Screening mammography is used to find early stage breast cancer at a time when it is more easily cured—when the cancer is still too small to be felt as a lump, and when the risk of cancer spreading is still low. Dartmouth-Hitchcock offers the latest breast health services and mammography breast exams including 2-dimensional (2-D) digital mammography and 3-D digital breast mammography tomosynthesis.

Diagnosis

If your screening mammogram suggests that you need further testing, we have a full range of diagnostic tests including additional mammography, breast ultrasound, MRI, and if needed, breast biopsy. Our highly trained team of radiologists from Dartmouth-Hitchcock works closely with the Comprehensive Breast Program at Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC) to provide a thorough diagnosis and approach to your breast health.

Evaluation and Treatment

The Norris Cotton Cancer Center is an NCI accredited cancer center and academic research facility with a national reputation. The Comprehensive Breast Program is able to offer many types of standard and new treatments, including national and regional clinical trials that might not be available at smaller community hospitals. Through an integrated approach, highly trained specialists from a variety of medical disciplines work together to provide the very best treatment plan, and to deliver a range of medical and supportive services focused on you, not just your disease.
