'Ohana, a word found in both Japanese and Hawaiian cultures, was chosen as the name for our Mammography Center to honor the women of our community and represents the "extended family" of Yakima Valley Memorial's breast health services.
At 'Ohana, Memorial's Mammography Center, we offer a supportive and caring environment along with the most advanced digital technology available. 3 D (breast tomosynthesis) mammography allows us to provide our patients with the highest quality of care in the prevention and early detection of breast cancer.
Early detection remains a woman's best defense in the battle against breast cancer. Like all cancers, breast cancer develops when abnormal cells in the body change and grow out of control. When problematic breast tissue cells are diagnosed early, the prognosis for cure is extremely high.
Although mammography is the foundation of 'Ohana's services, additional diagnostic and support services are offered in the same beautiful facility. 'Ohana offers a communication link for women to access doctors, diagnosticians, counselors, and other health professionals regarding their breast health.
- Tomosynthesis - 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) is an exciting advancement in breast cancer screening shown in clinical studies to be better than conventional 2D mammography alone. It shows breast tissue in thin layers, like pages in a book, helping doctors dismiss falsely suspicious areas and find breast cancer earlier.

Guidelines for Early Detection
Studies show that a woman's best defense against breast cancer is a monthly breast self-exam. Pick a day each month, maybe the day of your birthday, and take the time to perform your breast self-exam.
To ensure the best protection against breast cancer,
- Perform regular breast self-exams (beginning at age 20) so you know the normal feel of your breasts and know how to recognize changes.
- Discuss your risk for breast cancer with your doctor to decide when to start regular mammograms or read about current Breast Screening Guidelines ».
