Before your visit

We strive to deliver quality patient care above and beyond the technical procedure. From preparatory consultation to final results, we are there with you—through every step of the process. The following information should help you prepare for your visit to our imaging centers, but please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Be prepared

How you prepare for your exam depends on what part of the body is being examined and the protocols used in your particular facility. In some cases the staff may ask you to change into a hospital gown for the exam. And you may be asked not to eat or drink anything before your exam.

3D Mammography

At East Jefferson General Hospital, we are proud to be able to provide our patients with breast tomosynthesis or 3-D mammography. This type of screening allows for imaging of the breast from multiple angles. This can significantly increase the accuracy of mammography, especially for women who are premenopausal, women with dense breasts, or those with increased risk factors.
The great news is that 3D mammography takes the same amount of time and causes the same low-dose of radiation as traditional mammography, but the outcome of the exam itself is so much better.
If you are premenopausal, have dense breasts or have increased risks of breast cancer,
Ask your physician if 3D mammography is right for you.
