How to Prepare for Your Mammogram
During a mammogram, a female imaging technician will position your breasts on the imaging equipment. You and the technician are the only ones in the room during the mammogram.
To get a high-quality picture, the breast must be somewhat compressed. To accomplish this, the imaging technician places the breast on the mammogram equipment. The mammogram compresses the breast for a few seconds while an image is taken.
The whole procedure takes about 15 minutes, but the actual breast compression only lasts a few seconds. You may feel some discomfort when your breasts are compressed.
- Wear a two-piece outfit.
- Do not apply deodorant, powder or lotion on or around the breast or underarm areas.
- For a regular screening mammogram, please allow 20 minutes for your visit.
- For a Breast Risk Assessment appointment, please allow 45 minutes for your visit.
- For a pelvic ultrasound, please allow 45 minutes for your appointment.
- If you have insurance, bring your card with you. You may also pay with cash, check or credit card.
- A physician order is required if you are receiving a diagnostic mammogram (this is usually ordered if you have lumps or are experiencing pain and/or discharge).
