Screening Mammography

A screening mammogram is an imaging examination of the breast performed to detect breast cancer, often before any signs or symptoms of the disease are present. This procedure is recommended annually for women over the age of 40, or those with an increased risk of developing breast cancer.

On the day of the examination please to not wear deodorant or anti-perspirant as both and cause artifacts.

Please bring any breast imaging you have had at other facilities to your appointment.

What to expect

  • You will be provided with your own locked dressing room. You will be asked to undress above the waist and will be provided a gown to wear.
  • The technologist will place your breast in the mammogram machine. To optimally image the breast, the tissue must be compressed. Please let the technician know if the compression hurts – there may be different options for placement and compression.
  • Usually two views are obtained of each breast, though occasionally more images are necessary.
  • The whole procedure takes about 20 minutes
