The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends you have a mammogram every year beginning at age 40. Mammography remains the best way to detect breast cancer early, when it’s most treatable.
At Women First, mammogram technical services are provided right in our office by our own staff of radiologic technologists. These dedicated staff members maintain up-to-date certifications with the America College of Radiology, in addition to undergoing annual inspections.
It’s easy to forget when you had your last mammogram—and when it’s time to schedule one. Women First is committed to improving our patients’ ability to obtain regular mammograms, so we offer mammogram services to you at the time of your annual gynecologic exam.
Breast images taken in our Imaging Suite are sent to Baptist Health Diagnostic Center (formerly Women’s Diagnostic Center) in Louisville, where they are interpreted by radiologists specializing in breast diagnostics. Results are usually available in two days, and we’ll be sure you receive those results, usually by mail.
We recommend you get annual mammograms beginning at age 40. Please call 6-8 weeks before your annual appointment so that mammogram services can be coordinated with your exam.
