Awareness, early detection and early treatment of breast cancer can save lives. That’s why for the month of October, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Community Memorial Health System is offering low-cost breast imaging to all women who schedule a screening for the month of October at the Breast Center at the new Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura or at Ojai Valley Community Hospital. The Breast Center is the first medical facility in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties to be a designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
During October at the Breast Center, Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) is available for dense breast patients for $150. Automatic Whole Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) is FDA-approved and used in combination with mammography for those who have dense breast tissue. Also at the Breast Center, 3D Breast Tomosynthesis is available for $90. Digital tomosynthesis creates a 3-dimensional picture of the breast using X-rays and is the latest breast imaging technology approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. At Ojai Valley Community Hospital, traditional 2D mammography is available for $65.
To schedule a mammogram or screening, call (805) 948-5093 or (805) 640-2250. The Breast Center is located at 168 N. Brent St., suite 401 in Ventura.
