According to Certified ~ Mammography Technologist Cindy Hartman, patients are escorted to the mammography suite where they are given the opportunity to :. have the exam and education pro- '~ cess in complete privacy. The actual mammogram takes only a few minutes, but the total time including the educational video may take 20 minutes or longer. Some women report a little ~: discomfort during the exam, but it ~' only lasts a few seconds and firm compression is an important part of a quality exam. "A skilled tech- "~ nologist knows how to properly po- : sition the patient to make the exam as comfortable as possible," : Hartman said. Jefferson Memorial's radiolo- gists and marnmography technolo- gists have all achieved special mammography certification. In ad- dition, the technologists and radi- ologists must attend continuing education courses throughout the year specifically designed for mammography. Although the hospital does its best to offer a high quality ~ mammogtaphy service, this does not change the fact that every woman is at risk for breast cancer regardless of age, family history or current health. Most medical ex- perts agree that screening mam- mograms done according to the American Cancer Society guide- lines together with annual clinical breast exams and monthly self-ex- ' amination are the three tech- ~: niques that provide the best means of protection against breast cancer.
