Preparing for your visit
We ask that our patients to prepare for their session by removing all metal from their body. Jewelry, body piercings or any other form of metal will be allowed inside our MRI. Also, please reframe from using deodorants or body powders on the day of your test. In some cases, powders and residue can cause false imaging that may lead to cloudy images making it difficult for our technicians to read the images. Thank you.
In most cases, appointments for digital mammography and Ultrasound can be scheduled for late in the evening.
In some cases, an order or a doctor’s visit is not required to schedule a mammogram.
