Mobile Mammography

Hillsboro Medical Center is the only mobile mammography program in Oregon that brings 3-D mammography (digital breast tomosynthesis) to locations around the community.

Our program provides a fast and effective alternative for women to receive their regular mammograms. We offer:

  • Advanced technology for detection of breast abnormalities and breast cancer.
  • A coordinated team of technologists, radiologists and primary care providers.
  • Exams performed in a private and safe setting.
  • Convenient access to mammograms closer to home and work.
