Mammography is the most effective method for detecting a breast cancer in the earliest, most easily treatable stage, long before it can be detected by physician examination. Screening mammography is used for women who are not experiencing any symptoms. A diagnostic mammogram may be ordered when a woman is experiencing pain, a discharge, if they have found a lump, or when a screening mammogram reveals an abnormality or suspicious area.

In preparation for your exam

On the day of your mammogram, you should not wear any deodorant, talc or powder deodorants that may cause artifacts during imaging and mimic breast disease. Wear comfortable and loose-fitting two-piece clothing. If you are pregnant or think you may be, inform your physician or our staff prior to your mammogram.
