American Society of Radiologic Technologists Mammography Checklist 


Get Permission

The American Society of Radiologic Technologists has provided a preparation checklist to assist women in preparing for their annual mammograms.  Tips include:

  • Schedule your mammogram just after your menstrual period, when your breasts are less tender.
  • Wear a two-piece outfit on the day of your mammogram, so you will have to remove only your top.
  • Don’t apply deodorant, talcum powder or lotion under the arms or near the breasts prior to examination. These products can show up on the x-ray image and may make it difficult to interpret.
  • Bring the name, address and phone number of your primary care ­physician.
