See if you can benefit from a QTscan.

A mammogram is a terrific initial screening tool. Yet many healthcare providers want their patients to get additional or repeat imaging. This is where a safe QTscan can make a real difference.

Talk to your healthcare provider about options.

Key considerations

Designed as a safe, comfortable test for women in need of follow-up imaging, more frequent imaging.

Used as a breast cancer screening tool for nearly four decades, but has a minimal radiation risk. Some research shows they may lead to overdiagnosis.14

Provides a better view and and fewer false positives than conventional mammography. Women concerned about radiation should consult their doctor before choosing this.

Uses sound waves to make an image of the inside of the breast. It’s often used to look for lumps that can be felt but not seen on a mammogram.

Often used for women who have a high risk of breast cancer, it uses magnetic fields to create an image and is more invasive because a contrast agent is given through an IV.

Early detection can save your life.

If you’re worried about your breast health, don’t wait to take action. Breast imaging can detect abnormalities before they can be felt, when they are at an earlier, smaller stage and more likely to be curable.
