How Much Time Does A Mammogram Procedure Take? 

Mammograms are a relatively short and take between 10 to 15 minutes. After the x-ray images develop, you may be asked to get an additional mammogram session in case repeat images are required.

How To Prepare For A Mammogram? 

Do not wear deodorant, talcum powder or lotion under your arms or on your breasts on the day of the exam, as these can appear on the mammogram as calcium spots. Describe any breast symptoms or problems to the technologist performing the exam. If possible, obtain prior mammograms and make them available to the radiologist at the time of the current exam.

What Is A Mammogram?

A mammogram is a noninvasive low-dose x-ray screening that examines your breast tissue for any breast abnormalities including breast cancer. During a mammogram screening, the breast is exposed to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce images of the breast tissue.

A mammogram is one of the screening procedures that doesn't require any scripts, so you can schedule one whenever necessary without a referral from our physician! 

Why Do You Need A Mammogram? 

With every 1 in 8 women being diagnosed with breast cancer, annual mammograms are recommended for women to help catch breast cancer or any other abnormalities early and effectively treat it. Being the most common method of breast cancer detection, an accurate mammogram can find changes in your breast two years before you or your physician can feel them. If you are at the age of 40 or older, make sure you undergo a screening mammogram once every 1-2 years

Screening Mammogram VS. DIAGNOSTIC MAmmogram

Despite screening and diagnostic mammograms being performed in similar ways, the purposes of both mammogram types differ:

Screening Mammogram 

A screening mammogram is a part of women's annual exam that examines your breast tissue for any signs of abnormalities including breast cancer. A screening mammogram is performed on women who don't have any disturbing signs or symptoms. The essential goal of a screening mammogram is to detect any breast tissue changes as early as possible in order to improve woman’s chances for successful treatment. 

Diagnostic Mammogram 

If during a routine screening mammogram any abnormalities or questionable tissue changes were found, a woman will be referred to undergo a diagnostic mammogram. In other words, a diagnostic mammogram is a follow-up breast screening that is focused on a particular area of interest like a lump or any other disturbing abnormality. Additionally, women who have a history of breast cancer will always be referred to a diagnostic mammogram that examines the areas previously subjected to breast cancer.    

How Accurate Are Mammograms?

While a mammogram is the most effective way to find any breast abnormalities before you or your physician can feel them, it can produce false-positive or false-negative results. On average, the accuracy rate of a mammogram is ranging between 85 and 90 percent. In order to ensure you will receive the best quality breast imaging services, you can schedule a mammogram with our highly trained technologists.
