Your time is precious, so we try to have you in and out of the facility within 30 minutes. The procedure is simple: One of our licensed mammographers will position your breast on the imaging machine, where it will be gently compressed. This may be a little uncomfortable, but it's not painful. A technologist will X-ray each breast and a radiologist will then examine the images for abnormalities.
