What is a Mammography?

A screening mammogram is an X-ray of a patient’s breasts, with no symptoms or immediate history of breast disease. This includes asymptomatic breast implants.
A diagnostic mammogram is an X-ray of breasts with symptoms, a previous abnormal mammogram, personal history of breast cancer, or problems with breast implants. This includes additional views tailored to the problems the patient presents.

Screening Mammogram Price: $225
Diagnostic Mammogram Price: $250

Ninety-six percent of women survive at least five years when breast cancer is found in the early localized stage. No more than an inch or less in size, early tumors may have started as long as eight years before they become large enough to be detected.

While mammography is the most sensitive screening tool available today, it is not 100 percent effective in finding all cancers. Approximately 10 percent cannot be found by mammography. Therefore, you should continue to practice breast self-examination monthly and have periodic physical examinations of your breasts by your physician.

If you have not seen your physician within the last year, we suggest you make an appointment because mammography should be accompanied by an examination by your physician.


Allow up to one hour for your mammogram. Do not wear body powder or deodorant. To reduce tenderness, have a caffeine-free diet for several days before the exam.

Approximately half the women who have a mammogram feel some discomfort. This is due to the breast compression, which is necessary in order to obtain a clear picture of your breasts, with the lowest amount of radiation. Breast compression is not dangerous and does no damage to the breast tissue. In addition, the discomfort is only temporary.

Our imaging centers offer extended hours, including early mornings, evenings and Saturdays. To schedule an appointment, please call 317-XRAY NOW (972-9669)/800-400-XRAY (9729), or submit an appointment request on our website.
