Since we only do screening mammograms on the MMU, a woman must not be experiencing any breast issues lump, nipple discharge, or pain at the time of her appointment. She must not have had a screening mammogram in the last year, and she must be at least 40 years old.
At this time, we only do screening mammograms, on the MMU, on women that are at least 40 years old. If you are between the ages of 35 and 40, and want to have a screening, you would need to be scheduled at our facility at the Jennings Center at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center. If you are younger than that, and need a screening for elevated risk of breast cancer, due to family history, you would need to have a written order from your doctor, and you would need to be scheduled at the Jennings Center.

Our radiologists follow the ACR guidelines on frequency of screenings. We only do mammograms on women, who have not had one in the last 12 months, even if their insurance says they will cover it. We do allow a 30 day grace period, if you have a commercial insurance. If you have Tricare, it must be within a 30 day grace period, and if you have Medicare, it must be done in the same month you had your last one, or later.
