Schedule a Mammogram
Datasource: Diagnostic vs screening mammogram
The National Cancer Institute recommends women ages 40 and older get regular mammograms to screen for breast cancer. Our imaging centers offer Tomosynthesis (TOMO) mammography, a revolutionary 3D breast cancer detection technology. TOMO uses X-ray like the standard 2D mammography.
We recommend you verify with your insurance provider whether 3D TOMO mammography is covered through your plan.Schedule a Mammogram
What's the Difference Between a Screening Mammogram and Diagnostic Mammogram?
|Screening Mammogram||Screening mammograms are regular preventive x-ray exams of the breasts to detect breast cancer in women who have no symptoms.
|Diagnostic Mammogram||Diagnostic mammograms are used after suspicious results on a screening mammogram, or if some abnormal signs are found by you or your physician during a routine exam, to provide a more detailed x-ray of the breast using specialized techniques. Also, women previously treated for breast cancer may get a diagnostic exam. Results will be given prior to leaving the center.||*$235|
|Breast Ultrasound||A breast ultrasound is a non-invasive test that uses sound waves to make images of the breast. Often, it's used as a follow-up test after an abnormal finding on a mammogram, breast MRI or clinical breast exam.||*$160|
Note: Patients must have a prescription for the procedure. Payment must be made in advance. Price includes the performance and interpretation of the exam.

How to Prepare for a Mammogram
Datasource: Preparing for Screening Mammogram
- Schedule your mammogram when your breasts are not tender or swollen to help reduce discomfort and get good pictures. Try to avoid the week just before your period.
- Don’t wear deodorant or antiperspirant because some may contain substances that can show up on the x-ray as white spots.
- Take a photo of your prescription with your smart phone in case you forget to bring it to your appointment. You can also fax it to 954-985-3034.
