    • Request a mammogram appointment

      Mammograms are only available at our Anderson, Columbia Northeast and Greenville locations.

      Your time is important – to you, your family and us. That’s why screening mammograms performed at Anderson Radiology, Palmetto Imaging at ImageCare, and Innervision generally take less than 30 minutes – less time than a typical doctor’s office visit.

      Screening mammograms are the best way to help find breast cancer in its earliest stages, when cure rates are highest. A screening mammogram is for women who do not have significant symptoms. If we find a problem during your screening mammogram, or if you are experiencing unusual symptoms, we may recommend you receive a diagnostic mammogram or other breast imaging procedure to help identify the cause.

      A physician referral is not required for a screening mammogram

      You should schedule a mammogram annually after age 40 while in good health. While a physician referral is not required for this exam, we will need the name of the patient's physician to whom the mammography report can be sent. Further, if an abnormality is found, the patient's physician will be able to set an avenue for proper follow-up.

      Request a screening mammogram appointment

      Our online request an appointment feature is for patients who would like to schedule a future appointment and is not intended for same day appointments.

      If you would like to schedule a mammogram, please click the button below and complete the form. A representative will contact you to collect additional information and arrange your appointment.

      I have had several c-scans and ultrasounds at the downtown office over the years and the staff there has always been great. This is so much better than going to any of the hospitals and dealing with all of the paper work, etc. I would highly recommend them .

      I went to pick up contrast for an upcoming procedure at 5pm on Thursday afternoon. The staff was walking out the door as we rounded the building. I stopped and asked if they would be so kind as to get the contrast for me so I wouldn’t have to make a second trip and they did. I think the lady’s name was Katherine that went back inside, got the contrast and the paperwork and took the time to explain to me what I needed to do before coming in for the appointment. It is very rare that you get that type of exceptional patient service/care in these days and I am truly grateful to the staff of Image Care (Rabon Road, Columbia) for being so kind to me after they had worked their full shift and were about to leave for the day, they still took the time to take care of my needs. I can’t thank you enough!!!!! You get 5 stars from me!!!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

      I had a Biopsy done, they did a great job explaining an making me feel comfortable about the procedure.

    When a simple cyst becomes painful and irritating, a radiologist can aspirate the fluid. This process uses an ultrasound for guidance. The fluid is aspirated and sent for cytology testing, if necessary. A cyst aspiration is considered an invasive procedure and requires the patient to sign a consent form.

    Breast ultrasound examinations are sometimes necessary to correlate with mammograms to allow the radiologist to make a confirmed diagnosis. Ultrasound is sometimes preferred in diagnosing young adults who have not reached the recommended age for mammograms. An ultrasound also assists the radiologist in the diagnosis of cystic nodules in the breast tissue.

    Your doctor may recommend a breast biopsy to examine the growth more closely than possible with a mammogram. The procedure uses a special imaging technology to accurately target a questionable lesion, with significantly less pain and no scarring.

    Spine pain management is a minimally invasive procedure where the radiologist uses guided imaging to localize and treat the area of interest with minimal patient discomfort.
