Preparing for your Mammogram
If you have been scheduled for a digital mammogram, here a few few things to keep in mind:
- Do not wear deodorant, talcum powder or lotion under your arms or on your breasts on the day of the exam.
- Describe any breast symptoms or problems you may have to the technologist performing the exam.
- If possible, obtain prior mammograms and make them available to the radiologist at the time of the current exam.
- The entire exam should take less than 30 minutes.
