The American Cancer Society and the American College of Radiology have developed guidelines shown in the table below. Over 90% of breast cancers can be detected when all three methods are used together in a planned program. The following recommendations are for women who are considered average risk for developing breast cancer.

Do I need an order from my physican?

As long as you have an established healthcare provider which you have seen in the last 12 months, you may schedule your screening mammogram without obtaining a referral.

What age should I start my annual mammograms?

Radiology Ltd. stands firmly behind its recommendation that women should receive yearly mammograms starting at age 40 in order to receive the maximum benefit from breast cancer screening. High risk women should begin screening before age 40. Please consult with your provider to determine if you are considered high risk for developing breast cancer.

Should I schedule a mammogram if I have a history of breast cancer?

Your breast health is important. With a history of breast cancer there are more factors to consider when scheduling your annual screenings. Our dedicated staff will be happy to help you if you call (520) 733-7226.

How often should I schedule my mammogram?

Radiology Ltd. recommends women over 40 schedule a mammogram annually.

Can I schedule my appointment by telephone?
