Mammograms

A mammograph is a key component of your healthcare program.

Mammograms are a simple, life-saving diagnostic.

It is proven that early detection is the best protection, which is why at ELFP we follow the American Cancer Society’s recommendation that all women over 40 years of age have a mammogram performed annually.

With screening mammograms now covered by most insurance providers at no cost to you, and our convenient weekday hours and Saturday appointments, ELFP helps make it easy to arm yourself with the protection you need. Each mammogram is completed in the comfort of our state-of-the-art Pink Ribbon Imaging Center, so you can rest easy knowing that you will receive the best care and fast results.

Our state-of-the-art Pink Ribbon Imaging Center houses two of the state’s Genius 3D Mammography machines. This technology is proven to detect more invasive breast cancers and decrease inaccurate reports and false alarms of normal results. This means that it often reduces the number of unnecessary biopsies for patients and provides clearer results for radiologists to analyze.

      They did a great job with my mammogram. They explained the importance of a 3D mammogram and that with my past issues with my “iffy” spots, that they would always get it on a 3D mammogram! Very friendly and professional.

      FAQs

      How do I prepare?

      Women should consider scheduling mammography for a date one week after their period begins. A bare torso is required for the test, so wearing comfortable, easy-to-remove clothing is recommended. Avoid applying perfume, deodorant, or lotion before your test.

      Reminder

      We must obtain prior mammogram films on any patient who has not received imaging in our mammography department. Proper readings cannot be completed without them.
