Expert Care to Keep Your Breasts Healthy
State-of-the-Art Breast Cancer Screenings available at many St. Joseph's/Candler locations
Women of all ages are concerned about breast cancer and nearly everyone has a friend or family member who has been affected by the disease. That’s why St. Joseph's/Candler was the first in Savannah to offer the latest technological advantages to detect cancer at its earliest stages.
We use an innovative approach including computer-aided detection (CAD), digital mammography and 3D mammography to get the best possible images of suspicious areas for more conclusive results.
Our multidisciplinary staff of expertly trained physicians, nurses and technologists aid in the early detection of breast cancer through state-of-the-art mammography.
Schedule your mammogram today by calling 912-819-6800 or by logging into the SJ/C iConnect portal.
Beginning at the age of 20, we recommend that you perform a monthly self-exam so that you can detect any abnormalities. This link shows you how to perform a breast self-exam.

SJ/C’s Mobile Mammography Unit, the “Screen Machine,” provides digital breast cancer screenings, both routine and diagnostic, for women in Savannah and the outlying rural areas.
Thanks to the generosity of the St. Joseph’s/Candler Foundation and a grant from the Georgia Cancer Coalition Breast Cancer License Tag Fund, the Screen Machine is now reaching women who otherwise may not be screened—by making it faster and more convenient for women to have mammograms. Annual mammograms are the key to lifesaving, early detection of breast cancer.
The Screen Machine accepts most insurance plans, including Medicare, Medicaid, Champus/Tricare and Blue Choice HMO. Financial assistance is available for women who are at least 40 years old, uninsured and meet certain financial qualifications.
Having a mammogram on the Screen Machine is safe and confidential and offers the same level of care provided at the Telfair Pavilion’s Comprehensive Breast Center. Our films are processed on-board so our patient is assured that her image is technically accurate before she leaves the premises.
