No preparation is necessary. We do ask that you bring in
your most recent mammography/ ultrasound films
at the time of your exam. Patients, who have had their prior exams
done at the ACC and have not signed out their films, need not worry
about this. Arrangements will be made to have these films at the time
of your exam.
Please be aware of any insurance and/or referral requirements prior
to your appointment.
Please note that following an MRI study of the Breast, that it may
be necessary to have additional mammographic images or a repeat ultrasound
to better locate a finding or findings. This may occur even if you
have recently had a mammogram or ultrasound at this institution or
an outside institution.
When applicable, please schedule your exam between days 6 and 17
of the menstrual cycle (day one is the 1st day of menses), otherwise
there may be excessive enhancement of normal breast glandular tissue.
This may require a callback for re-evaluation.
