Tips For A Better Mammogram
- Look for an FDA certificate. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issues a certificate to all mammography centers that meet high professional standards of safety and quality.
- Get regular mammograms. Work with your doctor to set up a schedule that is right for your age and situation.
- Follow up on your test results. Don’t assume your results were normal. Call your doctor’s office to confirm.
- Try to have your mammogram at the same mammography center each year.This way, your results can be compared from year to year.
