How to Prepare

Conemaugh Breast Imaging technologists are experienced and specially trained to make your experience quick, comfortable and pleasant. They will speak with you about your history and obtain your prior mammography results. Please arrive promptly for your appointment.

Shower or bathe the morning of your procedure. Please do not use deodorants, body powders, lotions, creams or perfumes to your underarms or chest area. They may affect how the test is interpreted. Please wear two-piece, comfortable clothing to make it easier to undress.

You may want to schedule your exam at a time of the month when your breasts are less tender. Avoid the week right before your period. You may also want to avoid caffeine for the week prior to your test if you have sensitive breasts. 

The exam itself takes only a few minutes. A radiologist will review the results immediately to determine if additional testing is needed. 

5 to 15% of screening mammograms require additional testing such as an additional mammogram, ultrasound or breast biopsy. If you require additional tests, every effort will be made to schedule them as quickly as possible to ease your mind. 

Results of routine mammograms will be shared with your family physician and a letter will be sent to your home. 

If you have any questions or concerns at any point, please do not hesitate to ask. We are here for you and want this experience to be a good one! 


What to Expect

When you arrive, please sign in and a nurse will help you to register.

A nurse will escort you to a changing area where you will be provided a comfortable gown and a locker to store your belongings during your exam.

If an exam room is available, you will be taken directly back to the exam room. If a room is not immediately available, you will be escorted to a second waiting area specifically for women waiting for a mammogram. Male family members may not sit with you in this second waiting area to ensure the comfort of all our female patients.

A mammography technician will escort you to an exam room where she will walk you through the mammogram. The exam itself takes only a few minutes.

The equipment automatically selects appropriate filter combinations based on breast density and thickness. Optimal compression technology provides warm and smooth feeling during the exam. The compression paddle stops automatically at the point of optimal compression.

After the exam, you will be escorted back to the second waiting area to await your results. A radiologist will review the results immediately to determine if additional testing is needed. 5 to 15% of screening mammograms require additional testing such as an additional mammogram, ultrasound or breast biopsy. If you require additional testing, every effort will be made to schedule them as quickly as possible to ease your mind. 

Results of mammograms will be shared with your family physician and a letter will be sent to your home.
