Welcome to Oak Ridge Breast Center

Remember, not all breast centers are created equal.

The Oak Ridge Breast Center is designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology’s Commission on Quality and Safety and the Commission on Breast Imaging. They are one of an elite group of centers in Tennessee to have received this distinction.

Mammography is literally helping save women’s lives.

Although not a treatment for breast cancer, this safe low-dose X-ray can detect extremely small tumors three to four years before a lump can actually be felt, increasing the chance for a cure to nearly 100%.

The Oak Ridge Breast Center is committed to helping women detect and begin treatment for breast cancer in its earliest stages. Serving the community since 1984, the Center is the only mammography provider in the Oak Ridge area that offers a complete range of breast health services, bone density screenings, and the very latest technology. Accredited by the American College of Radiology in every modality, Oak Ridge Breast Center is proud to offer registered, experienced, dedicated, and compassionate technologists, and boasts a perfect FDA inspection record.
