Experience the smarter 3D mammogram with improved diagnostic accuracy and less change of a false-positive result and callback, as opposed to 2D mammograms.

We provide a softer Mammogram

On your next mammogram, you'll get the best of high tech with a soft touch. Imaging Center of Idaho is certified as a 'Softer Mammogram Provider®', a distinction awarded only to an elite group of healthcare facilities. That means we provide a soft foam cushion, called MammoPad®, for each woman's personal use during every screening mammogram on our advanced digital mammography equipment. As a Softer Mammogram Provider, we make it a top priority to ensure your mammogram is warm and comfortable. It's one way we provide the tender loving care you deserve.

The MammoPad breast cushion was designed for women by a female breast surgeon. It is FDA-cleared, and does not impair image quality, and makes it easier for you to be relaxed, warm and comfortable during your exam. This helps our highly skilled mammography technologists achieve the best possible mammogram.

A Mammogram - or x-ray of your breast tissue - is one of the most economic examinations available for detecting early stages of breast cancer. Although Mammography is the most accurate method for early detection, not all cancers are found through Mammograms alone. Therefore, your Mammogram, an annual physical by your doctor, and your monthly (BSE) Breast Self Examination work together to find changes or abnormalities..
Compression helps make the breast more uniform in thickness, and decreases the amount of x-ray you receive. It also helps the Doctor reading your Mammogram see differences in the breast tissue that would be missed without compressing the breast.
The recommended age for a baseline Mammogram is 40 years of age, unless breast cancer family histroy. Women in their 40's should plan on annual Mammograms.
From the time you enter Imaging Center of Idaho to the completion of your Mammogram you should plan on a minimum of a half hour. Women with implants should allow an hour for the appointment.
Briefly, both exams require x-ray exposure. The older method uses film which cannot provide as much detail, the new method captures the images on a computer in varying shades of gray. More breast tissue is readily seen with Digital Mammography.
Risk of developing breast cancer increases with age. Therefore, annual screening for early detection of cancer is important to your ongoing health.

The American College of Radiology (ACR) is a national organization headquartered in Reston, Virginia who awards accreditation for achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of Imaging Center Idaho medical practices. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in all phases of Mammography.

Accreditation includes reviewing film processor quality assurance, accuracy of record keeping, x-ray equipment output, personnel credentials, and healthcare environment within the facility.

More than 32,000 diagnostic-interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and nuclear medicine physicists hold each mammography facility to high standards set by Food & Drug Administration's (FDA) Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). Standards in the practice of medical imaging, radiation oncology and delivery of comprehensive healthcare services are under the recommendation of ACR. You will find Imaging Center of Idaho on the ACR list of accredited facilities.

ACR issues a three year license to each Mammography facility. License renewal includes the same survey standards as the initial accreditation.
Digital Mammography is the latest technology available for imaging breast tissue. The difference between older film and new digital images is comparing night to day. So much more of the breast tissue can be seen with digital. You will receive "compassionate compression" because ICI uses the softer approach for positioning. Experience the difference, along with your digital mammogram you will be positioned on "MammoPad" cushioning to help ease the discomfort of compression. ICI is a "softer Mammogram provider."

I had a pretty great experience here. Check in was easy since most of it was done over the phone prior to arrival. I was well taken care of during the whole imaging process. I was a little nervous but that went away quickly while being talked through the whole process and during the process. Very great staff!

They went above and beyond to help my diagnosis. The Ultrasound technician looked at my prostate, but it appeared normal, so she explored my abdomen. She then found a hernia! I believe it would have gone undetected and untreated if not for her persistence. Thanks to ALL at Imaging and Vein Center of Idaho for a positive experience during a scary time.
