Our team of caring and compassionate breast care specialists is committed to breast cancer prevention and treatment. We use the most advanced screening and diagnostic technology available to detect breast cancer early, when it is most treatable.

Advanced Mammography

Rutland Regional’s breast care specialists use the latest diagnostic and screening mammography technology to help find breast abnormalities in their earliest stages. We offer a range of diagnostic and screening services, including:

  • Digital mammogram
  • Diagnostic mammogram
  • Breast ultrasound
  • Minimally invasive biopsy

Personal Support and Guidance

At Rutland Regional, we understand that an abnormal mammogram or a breast cancer diagnosis can be scary. That’s why we connect you with a certified breast patient navigator who can answer your questions, offer guidance and connect you with community resources throughout your treatment and beyond.

Breast Care for Men

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1 in 1,000 men will develop breast cancer during his lifetime. However, because of embarrassment or a lack of awareness about the condition, many men do not seek medical attention for suspicious breast changes. In addition to providing quality breast cancer care, the specialists at Rutland’s Breast Care Program are committed to raising awareness of the condition in men.
