Nurse Administers Mammogram

Screening mammograms are done for women that have no symptoms, problems, or concerns, and have never had breast cancer. This is recommended on an annual basis starting at age 40, unless a woman is at a high risk for breast cancer, in which case screening may begin earlier.

Diagnostic mammograms are performed if additional images are needed after a screening mammogram, or if a patient has a new symptom or concern such as feeling a new lump, has a history of breast cancer, or is undergoing short-term follow-up for a finding that is likely benign.

A mammogram delivers a small dose of radiation. Learn more about radiation safety at NYU Langone.

What to Bring to Your Breast Imaging Appointment

Please bring any previous mammogram results, such as reports, films, or CD-ROMs, if they are available.

On the day of your exam, bring your prescription if you did not fax it and your insurance card.
