Pendleton Community Care offers diagnostic x-rays that range from your head to your toes.
Since our first health center opened in 1982, we have provided our patients with timely, affordable and quality care.
Radiography, or, as it is most commonly known, x-ray, is the most common form of medical imaging. It is the easiest and fastest way to assess broken bones or injuries.
All General Radiology tests require a Physician’s order.
One of every eight American women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. There is no known prevention of breast cancer, but if it is found early and treated, there is a good chance of a complete cure. That’s why it’s so important for all women to commit to three breast cancer detection practices:
Monthly Breast Self Exam (BSE). You are in the best position to detect a lump or other changes in your breasts. It is best to perform BSE every month, 10–14 days after your period. If you’re menopausal, choose a day you’ll remember each month.

After Your Exam
A radiologist studies the mammogram, and within a few days sends a report to your primary care physician. Women who have normal mammograms also are notified by mail. Approximately 85 to 90 percent of the exams fall in the normal category. Less than one percent of the exams are suspicious for cancer. This leaves approximately 10 to 15 percent of the exams, which are abnormal, but of very low suspicion of cancer.
For many women, the time between receiving a notification of an abnormal mammogram and subsequent diagnosis is stressful. Fortunately, less than one out of 20 of these abnormal mammograms ultimately turn out to require surgical biopsy. Of those that do need biopsy, only one out of four is cancerous.
