Breast Imaging and Mammography
Yearly screening mammograms are recommended for women aged 40 years or older. If you are at a higher risk for breast cancer, talk with your healthcare provider about whether to have screening mammograms before age 40.
Early Detection Saves Lives
Mammograms can detect changes in the breasts before they'd be noticed during a self-examination or an office exam, and early detection saves lives.
Please book your appointment in advance so we can work around your schedule. If you need to cancel your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so we can reschedule your appointment without delay.
To schedule your mammography appointment, please call: 312-926-5522 or request a mammogram at one of Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital's six imaging locations.
