Breast health is an important part of your overall well-being. When it comes to breast cancer, early detection is key. Regular screening mammograms are the best way to detect breast cancer early, when it’s most treatable. About 80 percent of women with breast cancer have no family history of the disease, so talk to your doctor about getting screened today.
Our expert care teams use the latest technology to make sure you get the most accurate screening results and are dedicated to improving breast health for all women.
Appointments are available across the Twin Cities, with quick results to help you rest easier.
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 read within 24 hours and the results will be sent in the mail as early as 48 hours after your appointment. It may take up to two weeks to receive your results.
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 within five days after your mammogram is read.
For questions about your results, please contact your doctor.
