Regularly scheduled mammograms are one of the most important ways to be proactive about your breast health. Through our Center for Breast Health, we’re proud to offer one of the most advanced, low-dose digital mammography systems available today. This powerful yet gentle system is:

Ergonomically designed with specialized mammo pads to give you a warmer, more comfortable experience (we also offer plush, warm robes before your exam)

Highly efficient in both set up and operation for faster exams and fewer retakes

Amazing image quality for clearer and more precise diagnosis

An extra assurance for you, because the system automatically “reads” the results and reports them to the doctor

All of our mammograms are performed by certified technologists, then reviewed by radiologists who specialize in breast imaging. If your mammogram indicates any cause for concern, a staff member will discuss the results with you and make recommendations. After the diagnostic study is concluded, the physicians at the Center will prepare a written report for your referring physician, available the same day.

If it has been a year or more since your last mammogram, please schedule an appointment today.

FAQs for mammograms

What do I bring? You’ll need your insurance information, the prescription for the procedure from your doctor (a phone order from your doctor is acceptable, too), and a referral if your insurance requires it.

Please bring all results from previous mammography procedures. If your previous images are from another facility, please bring CDs or films three days prior to your procedure.

How do I prepare? For some procedures, a nurse needs to interview you first. We’ll let you know if you need to do this when you schedule an appointment with us.

The day of your mammogram, do not apply powder, deodorant, or perfume on your upper body. You may eat and take all medications as directed by your doctor.

What if I’m pregnant? You should not have a mammogram if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant.
