In this way, does Kaiser cover mammograms?

Kaiser Permanente medical offices also offers digital mammography, which may be better for women who have dense breast tissue, are under the age of 50, or are pre-menopausal. If digital mammography is not available, it's important to get a film-screen mammogram. Both are well proven to reduce breast cancer mortality.

Beside above, how do you schedule a mammogram? Prepare for your mammogram.

  1. If you haven't started menopause, schedule your mammogram for the week after your menstrual period.
  2. Schedule your appointment early in the day since you can't wear deodorant, powder, lotion or ointment around the chest area.
  3. Wear a two-piece outfit so you only have to remove your top.
