Same-day mammography appointments, with a doctor's order, are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at the Breast Health and Research Center at the Sonoran Health and Emergency Center. The new facility is off Interstate 17 between Dove Valley Boulevard and Carefree Highway.

"We offer low-dose 3D mammography that can detect breast cancers at earlier, more treatable stages, with reduced exposure and less compression time," said Director Sherry Gage. Bone density screenings also are available. Please call 623-780-HOPE (4673).
