We’re open and taking appointments

If it’s time for your annual mammogram, or if you’ve missed it, our Washington University breast specialists are here for you – with expanded hours, including Saturdays, and the latest 3D technology.

For your safety and ours, no walk-ins are being accepted, to provide staff extra time to thoroughly clean exam areas and equipment after each appointment. Other safety measures include:

  • Masks for patients and staff members
  • Physical distancing in waiting areas

Mammogram Recommendations Following Vaccine

The Society of Breast Imagining (SBI) has released the following recommended guidelines around the COVID-19 Vaccine and Mammograms.

  • Patients should receive a screening mammogram before the first dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine or
  • Delay screening mammogram exam 4 – 6 weeks following the second dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine

The recommendation helps to prevent false abnormal screening mammograms, which could result in unnecessary diagnostic follow-up.

The Siteman Cancer Center is committed to early detection of breast cancer through mammography and other screening methods.

At Siteman, a dedicated team of Washington University radiologists and radiology technologists who specialize in mammography interpret more than 50,000 exams every year. That’s all they do, all day, every day. They are mammography experts with the skill, expertise and experience to make a difference.

At Siteman, every mammogram is read by radiologists that sub-specialize in comprehensive breast imaging. That means 100 percent of the time these specialists are dedicated to interpreting breast images.

All of our radiologists are full-time Washington University physicians affiliated with the internationally recognized Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology.

All radiology technologists on staff have advanced certification in breast mammography and have undergone rigorous training in breast anatomy and physiology, positioning and compression, as well as imaging of patients with breast implants.

Their expertise and experience means clear images the first time and every time. At Siteman we provide all digital breast imaging services including:

  • Screening
  • 3D mammography (tomosynthesis)
  • Diagnostic mammograms
  • Breast ultrasound
  • Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
