May I see physicians or receive treatment at any other locations?

Patients can get treatment at the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center, located on our main campus in Maywood. Other suburban locations offer visits with cancer specialists.

Do you offer digital mammography?

Yes, Loyola offers digital mammography for screening and diagnostic mammograms. Digital mammography is quickly becoming the standard in breast imaging and allows us to provide you with the best possible care in the prevention and early detection of breast cancer. Digital mammography has many benefits including the radiologist's ability to zoom in on specific areas of the image to aid in detection of small calcifications, masses and other often subtle changes that may be signs of early breast cancer, particularly in premenopausal patients and patients who have dense breasts.
