HealthPartners and Regions Hospital Breast Health Center are dedicated to improving breast health for all women. We pair our expert care with the latest in diagnostic technology and make it easy for you by offering same day mammograms. To ensure you receive the most accurate screening, radiologists that specialize in mammography will review your images followed by an advanced computer assisted analysis.
Because we feel so strongly about the importance of regular screenings, our clinics with mammography offer same day service for women who are due for their screening and are at the clinic for another reason.
Preparing for a Mammogram
The day of your mammogram, do not use deodorant, lotion, powder or perfumes under your arms or on your breasts. These may create shadows on your mammogram.
When making your appointment, be sure to mention if you have breast implants. Extra pictures may be needed to be sure all the breast tissue can be seen.
If you have had a mammogram at a non-HealthPartners facility, have the x-ray films sent to our clinic to be compared with the new mammogram.
Your mammogram results will be mailed to you within two weeks. If your previous mammogram films are at a facility other than HealthPartners, it may take more than two weeks to get your results.
If you are signed up for myHealthPartners, your results will file to your account five days after your mammogram is read. You will also receive a letter in the mail with your results.
For questions about your results, please contact your referring physician.
