Breast Imaging

Mammogram

On the day of your study, do NOT use any deodorant, powder, perfume, creams or lotions on your underarm or breast area because they leave a residue that may be picked up on the x-ray and possibly interfere with the results.

If you have had previous mammograms at another institution, please bring those mammograms with you so that they can be compared with the mammogram being done that day.

Breast Biopsy (any guidance)

BEFORE STOPPING ANY MEDICATION PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN

Do NOT take any medications containing Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Naproxen 7 – 10 days prior to the study.

Wear a button down shirt & a very supportive bra to the appointment.

If you have had previous Mammograms, Ultrasounds or Breast MRI at another institution, please bring those films and reports (including Biopsy results) to our office at least 2 DAYS prior to your study.
