Schedule your mammogram
(920) 459-5171


All women should talk with their health care provider about the appropriate timing for screening mammograms, especially women who are age 40 or at high-risk. A schedule will b be based upon your individual health. At age 40, any woman may wish to begin regular screening mammograms. By age 45, women should have a screening mammogram and continue to have one at least every other year. 


What is a screening mammogram?

 

Screening mammograms are routine mammograms for women with no breast changes or concerns. It usually takes two pictures of each breast and the entire procedure takes approximately 20 minutes. The goal of a screening mammogram is to detect breast cancer when it is too small to be felt by you or your health care provider. If a routine mammogram indicates an abnormality, further breast imaging, such as a diagnostic mammogram, ultrasound or MRI, may be recommended. When necessary, we can arrange a surgical consult on your behalf. 

 

What is a diagnostic mammogram?


A diagnostic mammogram is ordered by your physician when symptoms that may indicate breast disease are found by you or your doctor. It may also be done after an abnormal screening mammogram to better evaluate the area of concern. Diagnostic mammograms require additional views, or exposures, to provide the radiologist with the necessary information.

 

How do I prepare for my mammogram?

Wear a comfortable two-piece outfit to easily undress from the waist up. Do not use any deodorant, perfume, lotion or powder on your upper body. Using these products before a mammogram may cause white spots to appear on the image and require repeat mammograms.

Most patients can call to schedule their own screening mammogram appointments. We will obtain the physician order for you. Simply call (920) 459-5171. If you have breast symptoms or concerns, consult your physician first.
