Breast Center

Knowledge is power. And in this case, peace of mind.

When it comes to breast cancer, early diagnosis improves a woman's chances for complete recovery. That’s why a mammogram is something every woman 40 and over should have every year.

And we make the process easy and convenient, with comfortable facilities and a caring staff of mammography professionals.

The University of Kansas Health System St. Francis Campus Breast Center is a full-service mammography facility that is approved by the Federal Drug Administration and accredited by the American College of Radiology as a "Breast Center of Excellence" in stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound, breast ultrasound biopsies and breast MRI.

Located on the second floor of the main campus hospital, it has convenient, designated parking at Entrance A that provides quick access to the lobby and the Breast Center's designated elevator.

The Breast Center now offers 3D Mammography. For decades doctors have been searching for a technology to help them find very small cancers or rule out “false positives” and reduce the number of women who are called back for a diagnostic mammogram.

With 3D Mammography, the radiologist can see breast tissue detail in a way never before possible. Instead of viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, the doctor can examine the tissue a millimeter at a time. Fine details are more clearly visible, no longer hidden by the tissue above and below.

3D Mammography may be used in conjunction with traditional digital mammography as part of your annual screening mammogram to capture more breast images. The combination has been proven to reduce “call-backs.”*
