Screening & Assessments
Advanced Screening and Risk Assessments
Tailored to YOU
You’re Unique, and That’s How We Treat You
Tailored screening and assessment based on individual risk is the key to early detection of cancer. The Gerrish Breast Care Center at Anna Jaques in Newburyport uses the latest approach of risk-stratified screening to ensure that women with increased breast density or increased risk of breast cancer receive the diagnostic testing that is best for them.
First, we assess your personal risk for breast cancer using software that calculates your lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. Following that, we select from the following:
- State-of-the-art 3D Mammography for all women
- Additional imaging technologies, such as 3D breast ultrasound or breast MRI, to supplement mammography in women who are at high risk

Research has shown that additional imaging, such as through ultrasounds or MRIs, can significantly improve diagnosis in women at high risk for breast cancer. Click here to see the cutting-edge diagnostic procedures the Breast Center offers you.
