Experience Matters

To get an accurate mammogram reading, you need high quality images and interpretation of those images. Some factors to consider are the experience of the radiologist reading your mammogram, the technologist who performs your exam, and whether the facility you choose has the latest technology in breast imaging.

We have an impressive staff of board-certified physicians and technologists who specialize in mammography.  This experience combined with compassionate care and advanced technology allows us to provide first class breast imaging services to our community.

Our Breast imaging Team of female technologists have a combined 100+ years of experience and as women themselves, understand the anxieties, fears and emotions you may experience.  Our board-certified physicians work with expert physicians in related fields to develop individualized treatment plans for each patient, ensuring you are taken care of from start to finish. Their expertise and skill are crucial in the accurate detection and successful treatment of breast cancer.

 

How should I prepare?

  • Please bring a disc or films from any prior mammograms, if performed at a facility other than Jefferson Regional.
  • Bring a list of your medications.
  • On the day of the examination, do not wear talcum powder, deodorant, lotion or perfume under your arms or on your breasts. These substances can cause artifacts on your mammogram making the images harder to interpret. Deodorant will be available to you after your exam.
  • Wear two-piece clothing so that you only have to remove your top and bra for the examination.
  • To help minimize discomfort during your exam, consider scheduling your mammogram during the two weeks following your menstrual cycle (when breasts are often less tender).
  • If your breasts are especially tender, you may take an over-the-counter analgesic an hour before your appointment time.
  • Please bring any pertinent history to your appointment: prior surgeries, hormone use, family or personal history of breast cancer.

What should I expect?

Your mammogram will be performed by a female technologist, specializing in mammography. After you check in, you will be escorted to a private dressing room, where you will be asked to undress from the waist up. You will be given a gown that opens in the front and a warm robe. The technologist will ask you several questions, so she can better understand your history and/or any problems you may be having.

When will I receive results?

Screening mammography results will be sent to you and your physician within two weeks. If you are called back for additional mammographic views, do not be alarmed. More views or ultrasound are sometimes needed in order to make an accurate diagnosis. Diagnostic mammogram results are provided to you in a summary manner at the time of the mammogram. Your referring physician will receive the official results of your exam within 24-48 hours of your visit.
