Breast Health

What to Expect from your Mammogram

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.

Before your appointment

Please preregister for your appointment by calling 978-937-6023, Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.

  • We'll mail you an appointment reminder with specific instructions for your exam
  • Bring copies of any recent mammograms performed at another facility

On the day of your mammogram

  • We suggest wearing a two-piece outfit so you only have to remove your top
  • Please don't wear deodorant, talcum powder, lotion or other substances under your arms or on your breasts
