Treatment Options

For those who are in need of a diagnostic mammogram, our digital mammography technology is highly reliable to help radiologists and your doctor evaluate symptoms of breast disease including the assessment of a lump, nipple discharge, breast pain, dimpling of the skin on the breast or retraction of the nipple.

Mammography Quick Tips

  • When you have your mammogram at different healthcare facilities, it is important that you request a copy of your films, (if film screen) or a digital image file from the facility you had your last mammogram performed.
  • Do not wear deodorant, lotions or perfumes on the day of your mammogram.
  • Plan to wear a two piece outfit – you will only need to remove all articles of clothing from the waist up
  • Prepare to schedule your mammogram appointment for the week following your period. This will reduce the likelihood of inflammation and breast tenderness
