Digital Mammogram

Exam Preparation

Please do not wear any perfumes, lotions, creams, talcum powders, deodorants or sprays when you come in for your mammogram. These applications may contain a metallic base, and could cause distortion on the image.  Also, please wear a shirt that you can remove easily to change into a gown.

What Should I Wear

You should wear clothing that is comfortable and easy to get in and out of. A hospital gown is necessary for most exams.

 

 

 

 

What to expect

You will be asked to undress from the waist up. The technologist will then position your breast to get the best test results. During the exam, each of your breasts will be compressed. You may feel some discomfort, but compression helps get better images. Once the exam is done, the technologist may have you wait a few minutes to make sure the images are of good quality.

More Info

For your safety and to get the best test results, let the technologist know if:

• You’re pregnant or think you may be
• You have breast implants
• You have any scars or moles on or near your breast
• You’ve had a previous breast biopsy or surgery
• You’re breast feeding
