Current patients can complete an online form to sign up for MyChart. New patients can ask for an access code at their appointment to register for MyChart.

Mammogram Appointments- Update

Getting a mammogram too soon after your second dose of the coronavirus vaccine could result in a false positive and a callback due to temporarily swollen lymph nodes.

The Johns Hopkins Division of Breast Imaging supports the recommendation from the Society of Breast Imaging: When possible, and if it does not delay care your doctor recommends, you should schedule screening mammograms before your first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or four to six weeks after the second dose.

Walk-in Exam- Update

No Walk-In Exams are offered at any Johns Hopkins Medical Imaging location. This includes NO Walk-Ins for any patient coming from a Johns Hopkins on-campus clinic. 

If a same-day appointment for X-Ray or any other imaging exam is needed, the patient or referring provider’s office should call 443-574-5800 directly to schedule. 

We appreciate your understanding during this time and apologize for any inconvenience.
