Breast Cancer Screening

Breast Cancer Screening

This shows how well we help women screen for breast cancer by getting an image of their breasts (mammogram), as the National Quality Foundation suggests.

“Screenings” shows how many women 42-69 years old had a mammogram in the past two years.

Colorectal Cancer Screening/Prevention

Colorectal Cancer Screening/Prevention

This shows how well we help patients screen for and prevent cancer in the colon and rectum.

Cancer in the colon and rectum can be prevented if growths are found and removed early. A camera exam of the colon (colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy) helps find growths. Cancer with no growths (silent cancer) can be found by a test for hidden (occult) blood in stool samples.

“Screenings” shows how many patients 50-75 years old had a colonoscopy in the past 10 years, a sigmoidoscopy in the past 5 years, or a stool test for occult blood in the past year.
