Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.

An x-ray (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Imaging with x-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.

Patient Preparation:

When making your appointment, please let us know if you have breast implants as we will need to make sure you have a longer appointment time. If your breasts are tender just before your period, it may be more comfortable for you to make an appointment just after your period.

On the day:

  • Bring all previous mammograms and breast ultrasounds with you (if available)
  • Wear comfortable two-piece outfit
  • Please do not wear any talcum powder, deodorant or perfume as this may show up as an abnormality on your mammogram
  • Please let the radiographer know if you think you might be pregnant
