Your chances of beating breast cancer increase when detected early, and a mammogram is the single most-effective method of early detection. Lafayette Regional Health Center excels at diagnostic and interventional breast care. We are part of the Sarah Cannon HCA Midwest Health cancer network, which is renowned for breast care and cancer facilities. Breast imaging can help identify abnormal growths, breast cancer, cysts, lumps, and Mastitis. Types of breast imaging includes breast ultrasound and mammogram.
Lafayette Regional Health Center provides a soft screening pad called Bella Blankets® for each woman's personal use during every screening mammogram. We make it a top priority to ensure your mammogram is comfortable. It's one way we provide the tender, loving care you deserve.
The Bella Blanket soft screening pad does not impair image quality and makes it easier for you to be relaxed, warm and comfortable during your exam. That helps our highly skilled mammography technologists achieve the best possible mammogram.
Lafayette Regional Health Center has a new point of view on mammography - a 3D View.
The hospital has recently bolstered its growing suite of imaging services with 3D mammography, the advanced breast imaging procedure that can reduce the need for follow-up imaging, and detect slightly more cancers than standard mammography. The hospital is currently remodeling and upgrading its front lobby to accommodate the new 3D equipment and relocate its nuclear medicine and bone density services. The move will bring all the hospital’s imaging services conveniently together and create the new Lafayette Regional Wellness Center, offering more space, amenities and privacy
