If you are 40 years of age or older, you can contact the Women's Wellness Center or St. Anthony’s Diagnostic Scheduling directly and ask to be scheduled for a mammogram. You may only schedule yourself for a mammogram if you have no symptoms. If you are experiencing symptoms, please schedule an exam with your physician.
