Mammograms & Diagnostic Services
Feel confident you'll receive accurate, timely results when you have a mammogram or other breast diagnostic test at Olmsted Medical Center (OMC). You'll appreciate our focus on your comfort and wellbeing.
When to See a Doctor
If you have breast pain, changes, or other symptoms, contact your primary care provider to schedule a breast exam before you make a mammogram appointment. See your doctor for a physical exam each year.
Schedule a Mammogram Only
You may not need a clinical breast exam (CBE) before your mammogram. Schedule a screening without a CBE if:
- You don't have any symptoms of a potential problem, like pain or a lump.
- Your most recent screening mammogram was more than twelve months ago.
- You're 40 or older.
- You’re not a patient participating in Sage, Minnesota's breast and cervical cancer screening program.
- You've seen your primary care provider in the past two years.

A mammogram is the best way to find breast cancer as early as possible. At OMC, you can take advantage of the latest equipment, including 3D mammography, or True Breast Tomosynthesis.
A regular mammogram takes a single image of the breast. A 3D mammogram takes multiple images from different angles. This means your radiologist will have a clearer image and you may need fewer tests.
Learn About 3D Mammography
Contact your insurance provider to make sure they cover 3D mammograms and other breast health services. Explore types of insurances we accept and financial services available to patients.
Pat’s Mammography Story
“Since I started going to OMC’s Women’s Health Pavilion, the difference couldn’t be more striking. Warm. Personal. I may have gone into OMC as a patient, but I felt like I came out as a friend.”
