A First-Timer’s Guide to Wellness Procedures | Your First Mammogram

As seen in Little Rock Soiree magazine.

“After answering a few questions, you will undress from the waist up and change into a robe. A trained technologist will gently position your breasts between two plastic plates. Mild compression is applied while taking the images, and patients are only compressed to their tolerance. At least two images are taken from different angles of each breast, more with implants. The images are then reviewed by the radiologist.”
