Please follow the American Cancer Society’s preparation recommendation for a mammogram examination:
- Do not wear deodorant, talcum powder or lotion under your arms or on your breasts on the day of your mammogram.
- If possible, obtain prior mammograms and make them available to the radiologist at the time of the current exam.
- Make sure you bring your doctor's written order for the mammogram study.
- Describe any breast symptoms or problems to the technologist performing the exam.
Mammograms are performed in the Health Care and Surgery Center, adjacent to the hospital.
