The Breast Health and Women's Center offers a comfortable and private setting for women receiving digital mammography, bone density testing or ultrasound services. 

The Center is fully accredited by the American College of Radiology and the Food and Drug Administration. Results are read by board-certified radiologists from the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University School of Medicine. This makes a difference in the quality of your mammogram. Patients' physicians receive a written report for all screening mammograms. 

Self-referrals are accepted for screening mammograms as long as the patient has a physician to receive the report. 

Patients can go directly to the Breast Health and Women's Center for their appointments. Upon arrival, female staff members greet patients and assist with paperwork. To ensure patient comfort, all mammogram and ultrasound technicians in the center are female.

The women's health information library, also in the center, provides information on wellness, prevention and topics important for healthy living.

Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital provides free breast cancer screenings and cervical cancer screenings through the "Show Me Healthy Women" program. This program is available to Missouri women who meet certain age and income requirements.
