Message From Our Director
Thank you for contacting the Howard University Hospital Women's Imaging Center. We are taking the lead in the fight against breast cancer by introducing new 3D mammography technology that vastly improves early detection of abnormalities in denser breast tissue. The Hologic Genius 3D Mammography Smart Curve is designed to provide detailed, high-quality, 3D images, offering patients a more accurate and comfortable mammogram experience.
African American women in the District of Columbia have a much higher breast cancer incidence and mortality rate, almost two times higher than other ethnic groups. If not properly detected and treated in the early stages, breast cancer can spread to other parts of the body and become potentially fatal. 3D mammography is recommended every year for all women starting at age 40, especially those who have a family history of breast cancer or who may be at a higher risk for developing the disease.
We are extremely excited to unveil this new technology which will provide a greater level of care and improve women’s health outcomes in our local community. This lifesaving service is available to you and thousands of women across the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area. Give us a call at 202-865-3610 to schedule an appointment. Thank you.

"I was apprehensive to get my annual mammogram due to some pain and discomfort from a previous exam during my time in California. A close friend recommended that I make an appointment at the Howard University Hospital Women's Imaging Center. Still hesitant, I called and scheduled a time to come in. It turned out to be a great experience. The process was seamless. The staff was professional and the atmosphere was amazing."

"I came to Howard to get an MRI and I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to discover a pleasant and inviting environment. The tech explained my procedure with patience and detail. He also reassured that I would not feel any pain, which made me feel comfortable. I will definitely return in the future for any imaging procedures that I need. Thank you again for making my experience a good one."
Nadine R., Mt. Rainer, Md.
"Keep in mind, this was the very first mammogram that I have ever had. Prior to my appointment, my peers mentioned that it would be a very bad experience. That was not the case at the HUH Women's Imaging Center. In fact, it was quite the opposite. My mammogram was completely painless. The curved shape of the machine helped a lot. The staff was also kind and reassured me that I would be fine. I'll be back in about a year to do it all over again."
