Diagnostic tests are designed to provide a comprehensive evaluation of a patient’s condition and to help caregivers devise a treatment plan best suited for the patient’s needs.
Because some tests require advance preparation, it is important to understand exactly what is required so testing is not compromised or needs to be repeated. For more detailed information on diagnostic tests, click here.

St. Clair Hospital’s Breast Care Center uses the most advanced imaging equipment including digital 3D breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography) for this procedure. A mammography can detect changes up to two years before either a physician or patient can feel them – which can lead to early detection and a higher cure rate – mammography is especially effective at detecting some (but not all) breast cancers. For this reason, the American Cancer Society advocates annual mammograms for women over the age of 40.
