Mammograms are the best tool for early breast cancer detection and treatment. Talk to your doctor about when you should start regular mammogram screenings. Your preventive care plan depends on your age, risk factors and personal preferences.
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast designed to help find tumors that may be too small to feel.
A screening mammogram is typically ordered by a health care provider for patients as a preventative diagnostic tool.
To schedule a screening mammogram (for women who have no signs or symptoms of breast disease), call our Breast Imaging Center at 207-744-6079. Screening mammograms may also be scheduled via MyChart if a provider enters an order.
Diagnostic Breast Imaging
In about 10% of screening mammograms completed, changes in the breast are found that call for additional testing. Further studies may include a diagnostic mammogram, breast ultrasound or both.
A request for you to return for more imaging does not mean that you have cancer! For diagnostic mammograms and diagnostic ultrasounds, a radiologist will review your images and patients will be notified of the results. A report of the radiologist's findings or recommendations will be sent to your health care provider. Patients will also receive a letter informing you of the results. If a patient has MyChart results may also be viewed there.

Osteoporosis is a silent disease causing bones to thin, weaken, and fracture.
Dexa testing for bone density is quick, painless and available every weekday and often can occur when you are here for your mammogram exam. Scans measure hip bones and spine for changes in density or architecture. This allows early bone loss to be detected and for treatment to take place. We can then monitor the effectiveness of these measures with future scans.
