What is a mammogram?

A mammogram is an X-ray image of the breast. Regular mammograms are recommended for women over 40 years old. They are used to screen for, diagnose, and monitor treatment for breast cancer. 

How long does a mammogram take? 

Mammogram appointments typically take about 30 minutes. However, the procedure itself only takes about 30 seconds per breast.

Types of Protocols

Protocols are the details and plans that describe how a specific procedure will be performed. For mammograms, this usually means whether the procedure is performed on one or both breasts. 

If you already have a referral, the type of protocol you need should be written directly on it. If you don’t have a referral, you can book one through Tripment Health. 

Bilateral – Bilateral mammograms examine both breasts, whereas unilateral mammograms look at only one breast. 

Bilateral with Ultrasound – Many women have dense breast tissue — this is not considered harmful or even abnormal, but it may prevent doctors from getting a clear view of abnormalities in the breast from a mammogram alone. A bilateral mammogram with an ultrasound is when the doctor performs a mammogram and an ultrasound on both breasts. 

Unilateral – Unilateral mammograms look at only one breast, whereas bilateral mammograms examine both breasts.

Unilateral with Ultrasound – Many women have dense breast tissue — this is not considered harmful or even abnormal, but it may prevent doctors from getting a clear view of abnormalities in the breast from a mammogram alone. A unilateral mammogram with an ultrasound is when the doctor performs a mammogram and an ultrasound on one breast. 

3D Bilateral – Digital mammograms send the images directly to a computer, rather than having to print the images out on film. This is similar to the differences between a film or a digital camera you might use at home.

Preparation for Examination

What is a mammogram?

A mammogram is an X-ray image of the breast. Regular mammograms are recommended for women over 40 years old. They are used to screen for, diagnose, and monitor treatment for breast cancer. 

Does a mammogram hurt? 

Mammograms can be pretty uncomfortable, and for some women, they are even a little painful. However, the amount of time spent with your breasts compressed in the machine is minimal — only about 20 to 30 seconds. 

How do I prepare for a mammogram? 

You don’t need to do much to prepare for a mammogram. Your doctor will likely ask you to refrain from using deodorants, antiperspirants, lotions, creams, or perfumes on your upper body, as particles from these substances can interfere with the image quality.
