Donate to Breast Health Research, Patient Care and Education
Our women’s healthcare specialists at Northwestern Medicine emphasize the importance of annual breast screenings. Over 12% of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. The most effective treatments for breast cancer are initiated during the early stages. Early stage breast cancers can be detected with annual mammograms and screenings. Family history, alcohol and tobacco use as well as overall health can be predictors for those at the highest risk of developing breast cancer. Teams of specialists at Northwestern Medicine are committed to providing compassionate and efficient screenings at convenient locations throughout the greater Chicago area. Thanks to your generous donations to the Northwestern Memorial Foundation, we are able to provide the latest diagnostic and screening technology.
From digital mammography, breast ultrasounds, 3-D mammography and breast biopsies, you can take comfort in knowing our computer-aided imaging technologies are able to detect even the most minute tumors or abnormalities. The Northwestern Medicine board-certified radiologists, medical oncologists and pathologies work together to recommend the most effective screening programs for each patient. From educational resources to genetic testing to women’s healthcare navigators, our priority is delivering the highest levels of diagnostic imaging and treatment programs for women in the greater Chicago area. From detection to treatment options, our caregivers are equally concerned with each patient’s mental and physical well being. We understanding the presence of a tumor can be overwhelming and as such we are determined to be partners with our patients every step of the way – from diagnosis to treatment delivery.
