A visit to our breast care center may be one of the most important things you do for your health. Our caring and professional breast specialists provide you with the advanced, personalized care you deserve, in a supportive, peaceful environment.

Features of our care include:

Preventive care

Early detection saves lives. When we detect problems in the early stages, treatments are more successful. The Emily Fenton Hunte Breast Care Center offers advanced digital mammography, combined with computer-aided detection software, to deliver the most accurate results. Our experienced physicians, nurses and technicians ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible.

A tradition of excellence

Supportive environment

We understand that coming in for any medical procedure can be difficult, particularly one as personal as a mammogram. We strive to make your visit as stress-free as possible. We designed our center to provide you with a warm, relaxing and comfortable experience.

Personalized care

We tailor our care to your unique needs. Your personal and family history, your general health, your preferences and expectations are different than anyone else’s, and our care reflects that. We offer you the care you need, whether it’s regular mammography exams, other procedures or support during treatment.

What is a mammogram?

A mammogram, or mammography, is a low-energy X-ray procedure. A mammogram is a critically important diagnostic test that helps detect breast cancer early, when it is most treatable. At the Emily Fenton Hunte Breast Care Center on the campus of Scripps Green Hospital in La Jolla, we believe all women should get regular mammograms. We designed a comfortable and welcoming facility to make it easy and convenient for you to get the care you need.

Our goal is to provide outstanding care and support each patient’s needs. That means:

  • Diagnostic mammography in a safe, caring environment
  • Expert follow-up care when necessary, supporting you through all phases of treatment
  • Combining sophisticated technology and experienced clinicians to offer comprehensive care so important to the healing process

The center combines experience, compassion and the most advanced technology to provide thorough and sensitive breast care. Whether you need a screening mammogram, a follow-up breast biopsy or other services, our staff will help you get the care you need.
