    Schedule a Mammogram at Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast HealthMammography screening remains the best available method to detect breast cancer early. However, no medical test is always 100 percent accurate, and mammography is no exception. Research is under way to improve the technology to lead to better accuracy and to create new technologies. It is important for women to practice the elements of good breast health. It is suggested women:

    • Obtain regular mammography screening starting at the age of 40
    • Obtain annual clinical breast exams
    • Perform monthly breast-self exams
    • Obtain a risk assessment from a physician
