Our services

3D mammography
Prisma Health now offers 3D mammography at all our Breast Center locations. We’re also the first health system in the state to offer 3D mammography on our mobile mammography van. Large scale studies and comparisons have shown that 3D mammography offers the following benefits for women with dense breasts:

  • Detects 41% more invasive breast cancers
  • Detects cancers 15 months earlier
  • Reduces false positive call-backs by up to 40%

At our Prisma Health Baptist Hospital location, we offer the 3Dimensions™ Mammography System, which offers a curved compression surface that mirrors the shape of the breast. This technology makes mammography more comfortable for women with large breasts or breast implants.

This new technology is not covered by all insurance plans, so check with your insurance carrier before scheduling an appointment.

Mobile mammography screenings 
Prisma Health has a mobile mammography van for digital screening mammograms. The van is available for on-site screenings at offices, health fairs or community events within a certain radius of Columbia. For more information about mobile mammography, please call 803-296-3868.

Breast cancer Nurse Navigators
Our compassionate Nurse Navigators educate and support our patients from the point of their diagnosis throughout the end of their cancer treatment. Nurse Navigators work as support a system for both the patient and their family by serving as care coordinators and system navigators, easing some of the stress associated with breast cancer. Nurse Navigators are also advocates and community ambassadors on a mission to improve the cancer experience.

Breast conference teams
For more than 20 years at Prisma Health Breast Center, teams of surgeons, oncologists, breast imaging specialists/radiologists, genetics counselors, pathologists, nurses and others meet weekly to evaluate and recommend courses of treatment for all newly diagnosed patients. Our team approach means that patients receive the benefit of an enormous amount of combined experience, expertise and brainpower in planning and evaluating their treatment. This team approach has raised the standard for breast cancer diagnosis, planning and treatment in the Midlands.
