Prepare for your Mammogram

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 Berman Pavilion, adjacent to the hospital.
