An annual screening mammogram is a vital part of a health care routine for women over the age of 40. Annual screening mammograms remain the key to catching breast cancer in its earliest – and most treatable – stage.
At UCHealth Breast Diagnostic Center – Interquest, you can expect friendly, personalized care for your screening mammogram. Additionally, we provide access to top-of-the-line imaging equipment, including 3D mammography using Hologic 3D Breast Tomosynthesis technology. This state-of-the art technology uses multiple low-dose images at multiple angles to produce a series of one-millimeter images that create a 3D reconstruction of the breast. This enhanced visualization aids in the detection of subtle differences in the cellular structure of breast tissue and allows the best opportunity to find an abnormality that may be the earliest signs of breast cancer.
If you are experiencing breast symptoms, please contact your primary care provider before scheduling your screening mammogram.

Services we provide
We offer the following breast imaging services:
- Screening mammography – A low-dose x-ray examination of the breast that is performed on women with no complaints or symptoms of breast cancer (asymptomatic). The goal of screening mammography is to detect breast cancer when it is still too small to be felt by a physician or the patient. Research has shown that the early detection of small breast cancers by screening mammography greatly improves a woman’s chances for successful treatment.
- Diagnostic mammography – An x-ray exam of the breasts that is performed in order to evaluate a complaint or abnormality detected by physical exam or routine screening mammography.
- Ultrasound – Also called sonography, breast ultrasound is frequently used to evaluate breast abnormalities that are found with screening or diagnostic mammography or during a physician-performed clinical breast exam. Ultrasound is excellent at imaging cysts or dense masses.
- MRI – A diagnostic tool that is excellent for imaging soft tissue; it can provide contrast detail between different tissues with very similar densities. To capture MRI images, a patient is typically positioned within an MRI scanner, lying down.
- Needle Core Biopsies – A procedure that involves removing small samples of breast tissue using a needle. Tissue samples are removed and evaluated by a pathologist.
We also offer:
- Bone Density DEXA Scan
- Breast Cancer High-Risk Clinic
- Genetic Counseling
