How should I prepare for my exam?
- Please bring your photo id and insurance card (if applicable) to your appointment.
- If prior mammogram(s) were performed at a facility other than Mountain Medical, please bring those films to your appointment or the name and address of the facility where they were performed.
- On the day of the examination, do not wear talcum powder, lotion or perfume under your arms or on your breasts. These substances can cause artifacts on your mammogram making the images harder to interpret. Deodorant may be worn-we will have individual wipes so you can remove it before the exam and deodorant will be available to you after your exam.
- Wear two-piece clothing so that you only have to remove your top and bra for the examination.
- Please bring any pertinent history to your appointment: prior surgeries, hormone use, family or personal history of breast cancer.
