The Wellness Imaging Center is the only facility in Robeson County to offer digital screening mammograms in the fight against breast cancer.

The key to surviving breast cancer is early detection and treatment. According to the American Cancer Society, when breast cancer is confined to the breast, the five-year survival rate is close to 100%. The early detection of breast cancer helps reduce the need for therapeutic treatment and minimizes pain and suffering, allowing women to continue leading happy, productive lives.

Beginning at the age of 20, every woman should practice monthly breast self-exams and begin a routine program of breast health, including scheduling physician performed clinical breast exams at least every three years. As a woman ages, her risk of breast cancer also increases. About 77% of women with breast cancer are over age 50 at the time of diagnosis. Women between the ages of 20 and 29 account for only 0.3% of breast cancer cases. Beginning at the age of 40, all women should have annual screening mammograms, and practice breast self-exams every month.

Besides Mammography LRA's Wellness Imaging Center is a comprehensive facility for the screening of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a major public health threat for 28 million Americans, 80% of whom are women. It can progress without symptoms or pain until a fracture occurs, typically in the hip, spine, or wrist.

WIC has both heel scans and full body scans available to check for signs of osteoporosis.
