Book Your Digital Mammography Appointment

Booking your digital mammography exam

You will need a referral from your doctor or specialist.

To book your appointment:

  • Have your referring doctor or specialist complete all sections of our Digital Mammography Form.
  • Call 604-987-9729, and press 1 to book an appointment. We suggest that, if possible, you schedule your appointment the week following your period, as tenderness and breast discomfort are often reported during the week prior.
  • If you have had a previous mammogram, please let us know where it was done so we can obtain these images before your appointment date.
  • If you have breast implants, please let our staff know when booking your appointment. We will perform the regular mammogram as well as the “implant displacement views.”
  • Bring the completed Digital Mammography Form and your BC CareCard with you to your appointment.

Preparing for your mammogram appointment

A few guidelines:

  • Do not wear perfume, deodorant, talcum powder or lotion under your arms or on your breasts. These can appear on the mammograms as calcium spots.
  • Wear a two-piece outfit.
  • Arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
