General Mammogram Preparation
We suggest that women do not schedule mammograms one week before their menstrual cycle (period) since breasts are usually very sensitive at this time. Also, please:
- Do not use perfume/powder/underarm deodorant on the day of your exam.
- It is important that your S. Mark Taper Foundation Imaging Center physician have any previous mammograms available for comparison when reading your current study. If you have had a previous mammogram, other than at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, please bring the films and reports with you to your exam.
- If your doctor gave you an order, please bring it with you.
The S. Mark Taper Foundation Imaging Center provides a full range of advanced imaging, both radiology and cardiology, as well as interventional radiology and interventional tumor (oncology) treatments to the greater Los Angeles area, including Beverly Hills, Encino, Mid-Cities, Sherman Oaks, Silver Lake, Studio City, Toluca Lake and West Hollywood.
