How should I prepare?

Advise us, at the time of scheduling your appointment, if you have breast implants.  Do not schedule your mammogram for the week before your period if your breasts are usually tender during this time.  The best time for a mammogram is one week following your period.  If you have had previous abnormal mammograms taken at another facility, please obtain the films and bring them with you, if possible.  On the day of your test, do not wear deodorant, powder, lotion, or jewelry around your neck. Wear a two-piece outfit, as you will be asked to undress completely from the waist up.
