What will I experience during the procedure?

A routine screening mammogram will take about ½ hour; however, the procedure itself will last about 10 minutes. Our Technologist will compress the breast only during the brief time immediately before and during x-ray exposure. You will feel pressure on your breast as it is squeezed by the compression paddle. Our technologists are highly experienced and understand the need to balance patient comfort with optimal image quality. Be sure to inform the technologist if pain occurs as compression is increased. If discomfort is significant, less compression will be used. Patients with breast implants, large breasts or patients requiring special assistance may require more time for their procedures as well as patients requiring diagnostic exams.
