Radiology Services : Mammography

Back to Our Services page

A mammogram is an X-ray image of your breast used to screen for breast cancer to help decrease breast cancer deaths.

During a mammogram, your breasts are compressed between two firm surfaces in order to spread out the breast tissue. Then an X-ray captures black-and-white images of your breasts that a doctor uses to detect changes and cancer.

A mammogram can be used either for screening or for diagnostic purposes. How often you should have a mammogram depends on your age and your risk of breast cancer. American Cancer Society recommends an annual screening mammogram starting at 40 years old.

INSTRUCTIONS: Do not wear deodorant, lotions, or powders to your exam. Please let your mammographer know if you have had breast surgery in your past including if you have implants.

If you have any questions, please call our radiology department at 683-6406.
