How Do I Make An Appointment?
To make an appointment for a routine screening mammogram please call 970-384-7680, where you can also leave a confidential message containing the following information:
- your name and daytime phone number
- approximately when you'd like to schedule your mammogram
- days and times of the day that will work best for you
- whether or not you have breast implants
- any other information you feel is important
Your call will be returned within two business days.
If you have found a lump, or have other breast related symptoms, please consult with your physician prior to scheduling a mammogram. For immediate scheduling assistance please dial 970-384-7640.
How will I know the results?
Your physician will receive a copy of the radiologist's dictated results of your Mammography examination. In accordance with MQSA guidelines, you will receive a letter, in lay terms, also notifying you of the results of your Mammography examination.
What if further evaluation is necessary?
Sometimes the radiologist will feel further evaluation is necessary. Please don't be alarmed if you are called back for additional views. Mammography is a sensitive tool and sometimes "sees" irregularities that may not be real. Additional views can solve this problem quickly; if not, a follow-up exam in four to six months might be recommended. There is a separate charge for additional views and follow-up exams.
You will receive two bills for your Mammogram. Valley View Hospital will bill for the Mammography examination and Mountain Radiology will bill for the interpretation of the exam.
