Digital Mammography

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women. Hobbs Hospital provides helpful services to educate women on breast health, and encourage self-exams and routine screenings. We utilize imaging technology that may detect breast cancer at the earliest stages, when treatment can be most effective. The combination of caring technologists and imaging technology allows us to deliver quality care.

Digital Mammography

Mammography is an X-ray exam of the breasts used to screen for or diagnose breast cancer. Hobbs Hospital offers digital imaging technology for mammograms. With digital technology, radiologists can zoom in on particular areas or change brightness or contrast for even greater visibility, and results can be read immediately. It offers numerous benefits to women, including:

  • Improved accuracy of screening exams, especially for women with dense breast tissue.
  • Less radiation exposure.
  • Greater image quality, reducing the need for repeat exams.

Breast Ultrasound

A breast ultrasound is often used to further evaluate an abnormality found during a mammogram. Ultrasound allows doctors to see the area closest to the chest wall, which can be difficult to see using mammography. This technology also helps doctors determine whether a breast lump is filled with fluid (a cyst) or is a solid mass.

To schedule a mammogram or other screening exam, please call 1-575-222-8056.

Appointments are on a first-come, first-served basis. An order from a physician or qualified healthcare provider is required. All mammogram reports will be sent to the physician/provider, and the patient is responsible for follow-up. Check with your insurance provider to confirm coverage for a screening mammogram.
