One of the best early detection screenings you can do is have a regular mammogram. Mammograms are x-ray imaging of the breast and can help detect very early signs of cancer, potentially years before symptoms can be felt. Your doctor may also prescribe a breast ultrasound. While a mammogram detects very small calcification, an ultrasound is a tool to pick up larger masses.
Ascension Crittenton’s Center for Breast Health utilizes the latest technology, including digital screening and diagnostic mammography, ultrasound, and breast MRI to help our patients pursue their best outcomes. Our skilled radiologists are experts at reading and interpreting your results to you so that you are always in control of your health.
We now offer state-of-the-art digital 3D Mammography (Tomosynthesis). Also known as 3D Tomo, this is one of the most powerful diagnostic tools available for the early detection of breast cancer at outpatient locations in Rochester Hills and Auburn Hills.

- Support groups for breast cancer patients meet at various times and locations, including a young survivors group.
