Digital Mammography—Overview, Locations, Hours and Contact Info


Digital Mammography
Mammography is used to screen for problems in women with no symptoms.  A mammogram is a safe, low dose x-ray of the inside of your breast.  A mammogram can show changes too small to feel.   It can also help to diagnose a lump or other change found during a breast exam.  

Before your test:
If you have had breast surgery, tell the doctor or technologist ahead of time. You should also mention breast implants or large moles.  Any of these may affect test results. Try to schedule your mammogram for the week after your period, when your breasts are less tender. On the day of your test:

  • Wear a two-piece outfit, since you’ll be undressing from the waist up.
  • Don’t use deodorant, talcum powder, or cream on your breasts or underarms. These can interfere with test results.

What to expect:
During the test, your breast is gently flattened between two plastic plates. This ensures that all breast tissue can be seen.  You may feel some discomfort, but it lasts just a few moments.  An x-ray machine sends a tiny amount of radiation through your breast to create an image. Two or more views may be taken of each breast to provide a complete picture. Your health care provider will discuss the test results with you.  Be sure to ask any questions you have.

Guidelines for having regular mammograms:
Have your first mammogram by age 40. After have a mammogram every year. If you’re at higher risk for breast cancer, you may need to start having yearly mammograms earlier.
